Cash-to-card machines, where you can top up the catering balance on your CampusCard, can be found in the refectory and next to the vending machines near the Nikolakloster cafeteria. To top up your balance, hold the card up to the reader and insert a euro banknote into the banknote acceptor. Please keep holding your card against the reader until you see the new balance on the screen. If you remove your card too soon, the balance will not be stored on the card. If that happens, simply hold you card against the card reader again right away, and the balance will be topped up. The catering payments function is activated when you top up your balance for the first time.
Cash-to-card machines for topping up the printer-copier balance on your CampusCard can be found near the printer-copiers. Please note that these are different from the catering cash-to-card machines and that the two balances are stored separately on your card. To top up your balance, insert the card into the card acceptor and a euro banknote into the banknote acceptor. The printer-copier payments function is activated when you top up your balance for the first time.
Every personalised CampusCard has a university library user number printed on the back. This number enables you to borrow books and other items from Passau University Library.
If you already have a library card the number of your library account was changed to the number printed on your CampusCard. You will no longer be able to use your old, green library card for library services. The green library cards do not need to be returned.
University staff who have not previously had a (green) library card will be able to apply for entry into the new system. To do so, they should bring in their CampusCard. Please contact the library card team for further details.
Photocopies of the front and back of the CampusCard are only accepted as a library card if signed by the CampusCard owner.
You should be able to use your new CampusCard to open the boom barrier at the entrance to the car park in the same way you are currently using the Mensacard. If you already have the car park access function enabled on your Mensacard your CampusCard will have the same function enabled. You do not need to apply anew.
If you wish to use the student car park and have not previously done so, you should apply for underground car park access with the Building Management section.
To use the CampusCard as a semester bus pass, you need to have the 'valid until' 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 might result in a hefty fine! Please always bring along a valid photographic ID when using public transport in case there are inspections.
- Students can use the CampusCard for trips in the bus network operated by VBP (Verkehrsbetriebsgesellschaft Passau mbH). Please note that it is not valid for trips on the RBO/VLP network, the regional buses that service destinations outside of Passau's city limits.
- The ticket is not transferable.
- You must carry the CampusCard with you every time you take a bus and show it to the ticket inspectors when asked to do so. When entering the bus, you should show the card to the driver.
