You can activate your ateneo+ as a cash card account immediately when you get it:  you only have to bring two copies of your valid Identity Card and Fiscal Code to the bank’s branch.

Otherwise, you can activate your ateneo+ at a later time in any  branch of Banca Popolare di Sondrio,  also in those located inside your University.

After subscribing  the contract you can start using your ateneo+ card, without any fee or activation cost.

What can you do with ateneo+?

The card allows you to make purchases in all the affiliated shops and online, withdraw cash from ATMs in Italy and abroad, credit you salary, charge bills and utilities (pay tv, adsl…),  add credit to your SIM*, carry out transfers*, pay university tuition fees and M.Av*, make payments to public administration (pagoPA)*.
The security systems provided by the bank (for example  alerts on your phone after doing certain operations and the “3D Secure” authentication for your online purchases) will protect all your operations.


* through SCRIGNO, digital bank service of Banca Popolare di Sondrio.
