Students receive personalised CampusCards, which serve as student ID cards. The following groups will receive a CampusCard/student ID card:
- exchange students
- ERASMUS exchange students
- DAAD exchange students
To obtain a CampusCard, you first have to request it in Stud.IP.
After the card application has gone through, the card is printed by the Student Registration Office. You will be notified by e-mail via Stud.IP when your card is ready. At present, all CampusCards are sent to your specified German or Austrian postal address. Dispatch to addresses abroad (except Austria) is generally not possible. When you receive your CampusCard, it is already validated for summer semester 2020, i.e. the valid-to date 30 September 2020 is already printed on it. You can then use this card to travel by bus within the Passau city limits.
Personal collection of the card is only possible in exceptional cases. If you have been told to come in to pick up your card in person, you will be able to collect it from the collection desk in the foyer of the Administration Building, Innstrasse 41. You will need to show us official photographic ID (i.e. your passport or European identity card) before we can hand out your CampusCard.
This procedure is subject to change at very short notice due to the ongoing coronavirus situation.
CampusCard collection from the teller window in the foyer of the Administration Building:
- For the time being, no personal contact is allowed.
- If you have an urgent eqnuiry, please contact us by e-mail or telephone.
First-semester students: For the time being, pre-validated CampusCards are sent to students by post. Your card is therefore already valid until 30 September 2020 and you do not have to come to the university for validation.
Students in higher semesters: Validation is currently not possible due to the coronavirus situation. The University has reached an agreement with the local public transport company that bus passes with a 'valid to' date of 31 March 2020 can be used up to and including 30 September 2020. However, if you intend to use the buses, you must also carry a current enrolment certificate with you to prove that you are enrolled at the University of Passau in summer semester 2020.
We will inform you as soon as we have new information on the rules from 1 October 2020 onwards. Please also read the University's FAQs page on the coronavirus situation.
If you are unable to collect your CampusCard in person during issue times, an alternative collection is possible in exceptional cases.
If you are unable to come in during the collection times, an alternative collection appointment may, exceptionally, be arranged.
You may ask someone else to fetch the CampusCard for you. To do so, you will need to authorise that person to act on your behalf (proxy). Your proxy must prove his or her identity, e.g. by showing his/her passport. Moreover, he/she should bring along the following documents:
- the 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)
- the card applicant's written authorisation, signed by the card applicant
You can download an authorisation form which you can fill in on your computer and print out.
For students, the CampusCard is also valid as a semester bus pass and entitles the holder to travel on the scheduled services of Verkehrsbetriebsgesellschaft Passau mbH (VBP). To use the CampusCard as a semester bus pass, the 'valid until' date, covering the current semester, must be printed on the card. This is done when your card is validated. Please always bring along a valid photographic ID when using public transport in case there are inspections.
