CampusCard versions

The CampusCard is the multi-functional chip card used by members of the University of Passau.

CampusCard for students (front)
CampusCard for students (reverse)

The CampusCards issued to students can be used as student ID cards, as they include the following personal information:

  • Photograph, family name, given name(s) and title: these details are obtained from HISQIS. Please submit your photograph when applying for the card.
  • Matriculation number: this is sourced from HISQIS.
  • Card number: this identifies the card itself.
  • Valid-until date: your card is not a valid student ID/bus pass until you validate it at one of the validation terminals at the beginning of each semester. When validating your card at a terminal, the old valid-until date is removed and overwritten with the new one.
  • Library user number: your eleven-digit library user number is generated when you apply for the card and is stored on the chip. Moreover, it is printed as a barcode and in Arabic numbers on the reverse side of the card.

Employees of the University of Passau receive a personalised staff version of the CampusCard. These cards contain the following details:

  • Photograph (optional): please submit your photograph when applying, if you wish to have it included on your card. Having your photograph on the card is not a requirement, but you will need to bring along photographic ID (such as a passport or an identity card from an EU member state) when borrowing books from the library, if your card does not feature your photograph.
  • Your name and title: this data is sourced from the human resources systems.
  • Card number: this identifies the card itself.
  • Library user number: your eleven-digit library user number is generated when you apply for the card and is stored on the chip. Moreover, it is printed as a barcode and in Arabic numbers on the reverse side of the card.
  • Dual status: if you are both an employee of the University and an enrolled doctoral student and have opted for the employee version of the card, you may request an additional paper student ID card from the Student Registration Office.
