What is UniPass Card System?

The UniPass Card system is the property of the University of Debrecen. The card represents that the card owner belongs to the University of Debrecen. The card is used for identification on the university campuses. Besides, it also provides access to those services that the owner applies for and to those which are provided by service suppliers within the university. Outside the university the card provides discounts to some given services. The previously ordered cards are valid in the UniPass system until their validity date.
