Student Cards

Please note: if the Card application procedure is blocked on Infostud, only the digital Card can be activated, as outlined below

Digital Student Card on SapienzApp

With SapienzApp, you can:

  • always have your student card at hand;
  • safely check your personal data any time;
  • have instant access to news and events for students organised by Sapienza.

Thanks to our Virtual Tour services, you can also explore Sapienza’s facilities, study rooms and lecture halls and organise your time on campus.

Asking for the identification procedure

1. Please, upload your ID card and a close-up photo (i.e. Passport photo) to Infostud through “Profilo>Card studenti. Your ID card must be valid, clear, readable, front and back on a single PDF file. More details on "Photo requirements".

  • File name is very important: no accents or apostrophes. The only “special” character allowed is the “underscore” ( _ ) . The photo has to be a close-up (i.e Passport photo) as explained on Infostud.
  • To replace your photo or ID card which has already been uploaded but not yet validated, click on “carica foto/carica documento” (upload photo/upload ID card) on “Card studenti”. The new material will replace the previous one.
  • To verify whether the uploaded ID card is readable and complete click on Profilo>Documenti personali>Visualizza, and, if needed, use “Aggiungi documento” to upload the ID card once more. Uploading your Codice Fiscale (Italian fiscal code) is not mandatory for the identification procedure. However, it will be necessary for your graduation application so, if you want, you can type it in now;
  • Expired ID s you haven't been able to renew at this time are valid until August 2020. Once you renew your ID you must upload it to Infostud and repeat the identification procedure.

2. Follow the instructions for the online identification procedure you can find on each Student Affairs Office's webpage, section a and b;

3. During the call for the identification procedure you will be needing your ID card at hand (the same card you have uploaded to Infostud) and webcam and mic on.

4. To verify the identification actually took place, please click Profilo>Dati personali>Identificato sì/no, on Infostud. If the procedure is correct but, in the meanwhile, you have renewed your ID and the one you uploaded is different from the one you have now, you must repeat the procedure. 

Photo requirements 

Your photo must be unmarked and undamaged.
Framing and position
  • The background should be light and uniform, preferably grey, cream or light blue, or white.
  • You must be the only person shown in your photo; no other objects or people should be visible
  • The picture must show your head (in full) and the top of your shoulders so that the height of the head is between approximately 28mm (1.10 inches) and 32mm (1.25 inches). This ensures a well-centred photo that is neither too 'close' nor too far away. 
  • Do not tilt your head either sideways or up and down; artistic poses are not allowed (no turned faces, profiles, raised shoulders, etc.); the shot must be frontal, your gaze turned towards the lens.
  • The head must be vertically centred.
  • Your expression must be neutral (no smiles or strange expressions), your mouth must be closed and your eyes open and clearly visible.
Focus, colours, brightness and contrast
  • There should be no shadows either on the face or on the background, which should be uniformly lit.
  • The photo must be well focused, the contrast such that the features are clearly distinguishable. 
  • There should be no overexposure or underexposure effects. 
  • The depth of field should be such that both the front of your face (from the top of the head to the chin) and both sides (ear to ear) are distinctly shown.
  • Eyes should be clearly visible; no red-eye or closed-eye photos are allowed. 
  • Colours should be natural; no photos with colours different from the real ones are allowed. 
Eyeglasses, sunglasses and other accessories
  • You cannot wear a hat or head covering, except for those worn for religious reasons; even then, however, the face must be clearly shown. 
  • Your eyes or other parts of the face must not be covered by hair. 
  • You cannot wear tinted glasses; the lenses must be transparent so that the eyes are clearly visible.
  • Glasses frames must not cover your eyes.
