The Badge for First Cycle, Single Cycle Degree and Second Cycle Degree Students

The badge is a University internal identification document.

It is issued by the University of Bologna to all students admitted to a degree programme.

It may be required to access certain University facilities and to use University services, for example, libraries and book lending services.

In accordance with Student regulations, students are responsible for the safekeeping of their own badge.

How to obtain the badge for the first time

When you enrol for the first time in a First Cycle, Single Cycle Degree and Second Cycle Degree Programme, as your career is activated at your Student Administration Office, you will receive an email with a QR CODE that will allow you to print the badge at one of the self-service machines available at the University.
