Why Join LDK?

The Lund's Doctoral Student Union fights for your 

rights! We ensure that doctoral student voices are heard at every level so that you can influence the quality of your education. 

Decisions about how the university should be managed – quality assurance, structures for implementation and development – are decided by elected members of the staff and the students.

LDK advocates for the rights of doctoral students in their research education and work environment.


Supporting LDK also ensures that you will have access to the Doctoral Student’s Ombudsman (DOMB).  The DOMB works on a full-time basis with issues concerning doctoral students. You can always turn to the DOMB with any questions you might have about your education and workplace.

Membership or student card problems?

No worries - we will get you sorted!


Why don’t I get my student card via mail?

In the beginning of a term it may take some extra processing time. Usually it takes up to two weeks after you have paid your invoice. If you are a new member it can take up to 3-4 weeks.

Possible additional reasons are that you reported a wrong adress, maybe you moved and forgot to register that in our database (see below), there are problems with the card production etc. If you don’t get your card three to four weeks after you made your payment please contact

Why is the travel discount logo missing on my card?

In order to be eligible for these discounts you must have a study activity of at least 50% or more. The logo shows a small book on wheels. If you are studying at a 50 % activity rate or more and don’t have the logo on your card please contact

How do I get information regarding my study activity?

Your study activity (aktivitetsgrad) is registered at your department. Contact your department administration to report your activity or to adjust it. Otherwise you can find this information in LADOK (

I paid my student card fee but haven’t received it yet?

Please send an email to we will help you.

Do I have to report my new address when I have moved?

Yes, our database isn’t connected to the database of the Swedish tax agency (folkbokföringen). You can change your address here, log in and make your changes. Note that you can order a new password if you don’t have one or if you have forgotten it. If you have problems with logging in to you can also send an email to with your new address.
