UB Card

The University of Barcelona card identifies you as a member of the UB community, provides a range of useful functions and gives you access to services and advantages for your specific user group: students, teaching and research staff or administrative and research staff.

The University of Barcelona offers two types of card: the digital card — integrated into the SocUB app — and the physical university smart card. Both confirm your identity as a member of the UB community and provide access to services and advantages.

  • Teaching and research staff (PDI).
  • Administrative and service staff (PAS).
  • Collaborating staff.

It will soon be available to all other students and members of the UB Alumni association.
