All students enrolled at the University of Passau are entitled to a CampusCard, which, in addition to being an ID card for University purposes, serves as a semester bus pass (within Passau city limits) and offers additional functionality. The following groups receive a CampusCard:
- Students (including enrolled doctoral candidates)
- Exchange students
- ERASMUS students
- DAAD students
The card is printed by the Student Registration Office after the application has gone through. You will be notified in Stud.IP as soon as your card is created.
You should collect your CampusCard personally from our teller window in the foyer of the Administration Building, Innstrasse 41. You will have to show photographic ID when you collect your card.
Collection times: Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 12:00.
Please make an appointment if you have to collect your card outside the collection times.
All CampusCard-related enquiries should be made at the teller window in the foyer of the Administration Building.
The window is staffed Mondays to Fridays from 9:00 to 12:00
You can – in justified cases and only upon prior arrangement – ask someone to fetch the CampusCard for you. To do so, you will need to authorise that person to act on your behalf. Your authorised representative must identify himself or herself by means of an official photographic ID and bring the following with him or her:
- A signed receipt confirmation from Stud.IP (signed by the card applicant)
- A copy of the identity page of the card applicant’s passport (EU nationals may use their national ID card)
- Written authorisation signed by the card applicant
At the start of the semester you should validate your card at one of the validation terminals. Only then is your card valid as a semester bus pass or student ID, e.g. in examinations.
Returning students who wish to use their CampusCard as a bus pass should wait with validation until 31 March or 30 September, as the case may be. This ensures that the card, with the previous 'valid until' date printed on, is still valid on buses until the official last day of the semester.
New students can validate their cards right away.
The validation terminals are located in the following buildings:
- Refectory (M, Innstrasse 29), foyer
- Business Administration and Economics Building, (WIWI, Innstrasse 27)
- Nikolakloster Building (NK, Innstrasse 40)
- Administration Building (VW, Innstrasse 41), foyer
- Payment function (for printer-copiers and catering facilities)
- University library card
- Building/electronic locker access card
To use the CampusCard as a semester bus pass, you need to have the valid-until date printed legibly on the rewritable strip at the bottom of the card front. This should be done at one of the validation terminals on campus. If you do not have a valid-until date printed on your card you cannot use it as a bus pass – any attempt to do so regardless can result in a hefty fine! Please note that only your CampusCard can be used a semester bus pass – other types of enrolment certificate do not count! Remember to always bring along a valid photographic ID when using public transport in case there are inspections.
