Topping up card

Top up your card to never miss a discount. You will normally receive 10-15% off on most items (except course literature), in all our units. Since there is not discount when paying with a regular debit card, we recommend topping up your card beforehand and use as a local credit card that you, and only you as a Chalmers student, are eligible for.

Fastest and easiest way to top up your card is through our app launched September 2022. Use your CID to get started in the app and then topping up is just a tap away every time. Download app for iOS - download for Android. More about the app.
