Your Studi Card – As an exchange student, you will get your Studi Card when enrolling at the university – it will be already active, you just need to charge it. It is valid for one semester only, if you stay for two semesters you need to re-validate it upon enrolling for the next semester (the validation device is in building A, on the lefthand side, next to the auditorium).
Functions of the Studi Card - The Studi Card is your student ID card, but also Mensa card (payment for snacks/drinks and lunch), library card (borrowing and returning books), locker card (for the locks in front of the library), copy card (for the library and AStA), and it also works as a chip for the washing machine (at the dormitories).
Charging of the Studi Card – It can easily be charged in building B, just in front of the Mensa entrance. Alternatively, you can charge it at the cash desk in Mensa.
Defect/Lost Studi Card – in case of damaging or losing your Study Card, please inform the International Office. You will have to pay 15 € fee for issuing a new one. In case of technical problems, the card will be replaced without any additional charges.
