The ESNcard is the symbol of a new generation of students: mobile, active and successful! It offers not only great discounts to young people across Europe, but also gives them access to information, culture, education, careers, mobility, and fun. You can become a member of ESN Gent for €15. Due to the current pandemic, unfortunately we can only sell ESNcards online. 

We are only allowed to sell ESNcards to incoming exchange students in Gent. For outgoing students from Gent, you can buy the ESNcard from the local ESN section of the university at your Erasmus destination.

Once you've bought an ESNcard, you have to register it at Sign up, fill in your account details, and you're good to go!
