A very useful card !

In order to facilitate life on campus at Lyon 2, the CROUS (regional student welfare and information centre) and the Rhône-Alpes Region, offer you the Multi-service University Card CUMUL'.

With the same card you can access IT rooms, print out documents, obtain administration handouts, pay for meals at the University restaurant, get drinks from vending machines and so on.

The Multi-service University Card is personalised for each student and member of staff.

In December 2004, students of the University Lumière Lyon 2 even voted for their representatives using the CUMUL card - the first student elections using a 100% electronic voting system in Europe!


Access to certain databases containing personal information and/or certain functions are protected by a PIN code. Each PIN code is initially set by default to 0000'. Before you can use the card you will have to initialise the new code of your choice at one of the Cyber access' terminals. Entering a wrong code three times in a row will block your card.


  • Duration

The card is designed to be used over a period of 5 years.
