Leap Card: Young Adult and Student Card

Updated: Sep 14


If you are under the age of 24, you no longer need to acquire a unique student card via an agent on campus.


You can now apply online and have your card posted to your chosen address, you'll be organised and stress free for when you come back to UCD!


To get your student Leap Card, please proceed to the dedicated webpage & portal to receive your leap card in the post: https://about.leapcard.ie/young-adult-and-student-card-launch


Students that are over the age of 24 can apply for a Student Leap Card in the University Bookshop located in the James Joyce Building on UCD's campus. This is only required if you are a student over the age of 24.


***The Student Leap Card remains available to students in full-time education who are 24 years old and above. If you already have a Student Leap Card you’ll get the 50% reduction straight away without having to apply for a new Young Adult Leap Card (19-23). Just use your Student Leap Card as normal.***
