ESNcard

The ESNcard is the membership card of the Erasmus Student Network (ESN). It gives you access to all the services offered by ESN and all our partners. The aim of the ESNcard - or ESN membership - is to support international students and trainees and give them access to affordable opportunities during their period abroad.


With the ESNcard, you will enjoy plenty of discounts - transports, housing, sport, food, bars, etc. - all over Europe. You will also have the opportunity to participate in hundreds of events with your ESN section and other sections around your destination country, and even beyond, for the period of your membership.


You can check all discounts on ESNcard.org

To become a member, simply buy your ESNcard through KideApp! You can even become a member of ESN Uni Helsinki as soon as you have your Finnish university email address (@helsinki.fi, @arcada.fi, etc.), or a valid Finnish student card, or a valid Finnish student certificate.

Remember, that to become a member you have to belong to one of the following groups:

  • Erasmus+ students

  • Erasmus+ trainees

  • International incoming students or trainees on a mobility programme, other than Erasmus+

  • International undergraduate or postgraduate full degree students

  • EVS participants

  • ESN buddies, volunteers and alumni (either active on the Local, National or International Level. They are all members of a section)

  • Local Finnish students will receive the ESNcard by joining ESN Uni Helsinki as volunteers

We strongly recommend that you create your KideApp account with your Finnish university email address! If you do, we can easily verify that you're a student in Helsinki.

If you've signed up to KideApp using your personal email address, you'll have to verify your student or intern status. To do that, you can use the membership verification form or visit us during our Office Hours.


Everyone who is a current member and has purchased an ESNcard can convert their membership to KideApp!

Proceed to the KideApp and purchase the 'ESNcard Uni Helsinki (already purchased in person)' for 0€. We will manually check our registry to see if you are already a member and activate your membership on KideApp. We ask you to only contact us to verify your membership if it has been more than 7 days since you bought the membership on KideApp.


What will I need to get the physical card?

  • A printed photo of you. Photo size approximately 2.7 cm x 3.7 cm

  • ID/passport

  • A document proving your mobility status (such as a Learning Agreement, Training Agreement, Acceptance Letter, etc.) if you didn't use a university email and didn't fill out the membership verification form


The cost of the ESNcard varies from one ESN section to another. The ESNcard of ESN Uni Helsinki costs 10€. The membership is valid for 12 months.


After collecting your ESNcard, register your membership by creating an account in ESNcard.org website. Save your ESNcard number to your profile settings to get access to all the discounts we offer internationally!
