The main aim of the University of Lleida is provide high standards of teaching with quality services throughout the university community that reach society beyond the campus gates. Students make up most of the UdL community, and our objective is to ensure that they enjoy the teaching and learning processes involved.
The University of Lleida has managed to achieve a high position in different areas of research. Currently, the UdL has 94 research groups that develop their activity in various areas of knowledge. The UdL holds the 8th position in Spain in productivity of research (Rankings ISSUE, BBVA Foundation, 2013), the 6th in source normalized impact per paper (CyD 2012) and the 2nd in excellence and leadership (CyD 2014).
The UdL ID card is a conventional plastic card with a built-in microchip made up of a microprocessor, a programme memory and a work memory divided into different areas. Thanks to this technology, the UdL card is an intelligent card that provides many different services, aside from those strictly associated with university use.

If desired, the ID card can be linked to a bank account (function 4B). If this option is chosen, the card can also be used at automatic teller machines.
This bank account link is optional and completely free of charge: users only need to state their preference when they apply for the card.
