Your UNI-Card is a smartcard with a number of functions, depending on user groups (students, staff, etc.).
Students' UNI-Cards have the following functions:
Please note that the transfer of UNI cards to unauthorized persons is prohibited.
After losing your UNI card, inform the IT service office as soon as possible!
Depending on user group, UNI cards are obtained at enrollment / start of employment from different organizations:
If your card is not sent by mail, you can also pick it up, but you will need to bring your passport or other photo ID card. (There are exceptions).
Your first UNI card is free of charge. Replacement cards are not. These can be obtained from the IT service office. (more info on replacement cards)
To keep your card working correctly and keep it from being damaged, you should always keep it in the protective cover.
Curving / arching the card can make printing the semester validity date impossible, making the card useless as a transit ticket. High temperatures such as in a parked car in the summer heat can also damage the card's functionality. Also, please make sure to not put the card through a washing machine cycle or use it as an ice scraper.
If the card cover gets damaged or lost, you can always obtain a new one for free in the IT service office.
Note that replacement cards are not free. (more information)
After exmatriculation / de-registration / end of employment, the card has to be returned:
The UNI card has a number of functions that may necessitate extra steps:
Please refer to the notes on charging money onto the card wallet
Please refer to the notes on validating your UNI card.
Please refer to the notes on requesting a replacement card.
If the print in the lower third of the card is unreadable after using a validation machine, you can repeat the process at one of the other machines.
You can also bring your card to the IT service office.
(more info on validating your card)
If you found your card after reporting it missing and deactivating it, you can have it reactivated at the IT service office.
The printing wallet is managed on a print system server, not on the card directly, so the credit balance will be the same on your replacement card.
When receiving your replacement card, you will also receive a blank form to fill out to transfer your cafeteria credit balance from your old card to the new one. Please fill it out and bring it to the cafeteria for processing.
For students: The student ID will be sent by post to the address given when you enroll for the first time as well as when you re-enroll.
For employees: The ID card will be issued in the data center's service office when you move in for the first time.
For external users: The guest card is issued upon application in the data center's service office.
