Scan requests and loan orders must be placed using the online-form.

CampusCard for Students

Upon enrollment, all students receive the university's CampusCard. To use the CampusCard as library card a one-time registration is required using your university account (abcd1234 plus password). Following that, the CampusCard must be presented at the user services desk for a final validation.

Use the Campus Card to pay library fees and for the copiers/scanners/printers in the library.

To add credit (55 Euros max.) to the Campus Card use one of the terminals near the user services desk in the central library. Another terminal is available to pay fees.
