What is the ESNcard?
 
The ESNcard is the membership card of the Erasmus Student Network. It is a proof of membership in an ESN section and so indirectly of the ESN Network.

 

What is it for?

The ESNcard allows you to:

  • Join all of our events at ESN Lisboa (+150 per year, including trips, cultural events, parties and sports)
  • Use all the discounts from our partners in the city (including surf classes, bars, housing, communication, transportation…)
  • Access to all the events and discounts in all of the sections of our network (+500 sections in over 42 countries in Europe)

The ESNcard is also accepted as a valid student ID in many other businesses in Lisbon, since ESN is an organization recognized by the European Union. The card is valid for one year, so you can freely use it after you go back home or while you are travelling across Europe.

All of this for only 15€!

After getting your card, register it in ESNcard.org with just a few steps and get access to an international level of partnerships and discounts!
