At the beginning of the winter semester 2017/18 the Campuscard has been introduced. Department-specific, students receive an e-mail that their QR code is available for issue in the ZEDAT portal. Every day a few hundred e-mails are sent. So it may be that fellow students in the same department have already received an e-mail, but you have not yet. The link in the ZEDAT portal under the menu item "Services" will only be visible to students after receiving the e-mail. The QR code can be printed by students or downloaded to their smartphone. With this QR code, students go to one of the five issue machines and have their Campuscard created. The students decide whether they want to have a photo on their Campuscard or not. The Campuscard must be validated afterwards at one of the seven validation machines.
The Campuscard combines our student ID with the dining hall card, the VBB transit ticket, and the library ID, all in a single card. All of the functions of the individual elements remain fully in place:
The personal information stored on the Campuscard is only the library number, not your student ID number. No further personal data are stored electronically.
Students will be notified in stages by the individual departments over the course of the winter semester. Paper IDs will be phased out starting in the 2018 summer semester; from then on, the Campuscard will be considered the only student ID and VBB transit ticket.
