Upon successful enrollment or re-registration you will receive a student ID card that includes an access barcode for the libraries and the public transportation ticket. Furthermore, you will receive an enrollment certificate, the receipt of payment and a study book page (usually only needed by students in a “Diplom” or “Magister” degree program). Additional certificates of enrollment may be download and printed online.
The Freie Universität Berlin is set to replace the current student ID card (paper format) with a chip card named the “FU-Campuscard”. The implementation is scheduled for 2017 and will be launched Berlin wide in concert with six affiliated universities/colleges.
