The guild membership and ESNcard

ESNcard is the official membership card of the Erasmus Student Network. It was created with the principle idea to be used as a membership card, which gives you access to all the services and discounts offered by the ESN and our partners.

With the ESNcard, you will enjoy thousands of European discounts (housing, sports, food, bars, etc.). Moreover, you can participate year-round in thousands of events (trips, cultural events, sports activities, and parties).

The ESNcard aims to support and give opportunities to international students during and after their exchange.

Who can get the ESNcard?

Over 100.000 people per year use the ESNcard in 36 countries, and the numbers are growing every year.

You can always get the ESNcard, if you belong to one of the following groups:

  • You have been an international student (e.g Erasmus or any other exchange programme)
  • You are currently an international student on exchange
  • You are a volunteer in ESN

If you don’t fit in any of these groups, you might still be able to get the card. Please feel free to reach out to us for more information.

You can get your ESNcard directly from us, ESN Lappeenranta. Just show up at any of our events or come to the ESN office during office hours, tell us you want to buy the ESNcard and we’ll be happy to help you to get into ESNcard discounts!
