student identity card
All students are issued a student identity card, which is sent out by post after enrolment. The student identity card contains your semester ticket and doubles as your library card and Mensa card with payment chip. You can use the identity card at the self-service stations (to print student certificates, make changes to your address, print bank transfer slips). The semester ticket can only be used from the beginning of the semester (01.10. for the winter semester and 01.04. for the summer semester).
The card is the property of the University of Duisburg-Essen. As a student identity card it is personal to you. It becomes void when you are de-registered from the University and must be returned to the registrar’s office or the International Office.
If your card is lost or damaged, you can apply for a new one only at the registrar’s office.
