Student ID - Campus Card

The campus card serves as both your student ID and your Semesterticket, which allows you to travel on the local public transportation systems. This student ID also allows you to access a range of computer-based services.

Handling your student ID carefully

Please handle your student ID with care. Should you damage it by laminating, hole-punching, bending, breaking, etc., and the Semesterticket can no longer be read by the ticket inspector, you will have to pay a fee for a replacement student ID.

Important current information

For newly enrolled students at TU Berlin

Good news for newly enrolled students: Effectively immediately, you can once again request your student ID (campus card) including the Semesterticket (VBB ticket ABC) and upload a photo for your student ID when activating your IT account. Due to a cyberattack on the University's IT systems, this was previously not possible.

To avoid error messages or delays while printing your student ID card, please pay close attention to photo requirements in tuPORT. The photo should have a neutral background. Therefore, please use a photo that is also suitable for an identity card. If you do not have a recent photo, you can also use a selfie taken with your smartphone. Please make sure that your face is not covered by objects or similar.

You will receive an email from us with further information once your student ID incl. the VBB ticket ABC is ready to bepicked up from the University.

Temporary Transportation Pass

If your student ID incl. the VBB ticket ABC is not ready for collection by 1 October 2021 (start of your ticket's validity), you have the option of a temporary transportation pass. Please print out the form for the temporary transportation pass (Vorläufige Fahrtberechtigung) in tuPORT.

In order for the form to be valid, you require an additional sticker. You must collect this sticker from the University. Due to the measures in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, please, arrange an appointment in advance. Don't forget to bring your printed temporary transportation pass on the day of your appointment.

Have you lost your student ID?

You are a student at the TU Berlin and have lost your current student ID? Please send us an e-mail with a photo and the following information: reason for your concern (loss/defect), first name, last name, date of birth, matriculation number, course of study and degree objective (e.g. Bachelor, etc.). Additionally, please provide your TU-Berlin mail address, as we can only reply to this mail address. If you do not have access to the TU-Berlin account, we ask you for an official proof of your person in order to match the data.

The photo should have a neutral background. Therefore, please use a photo that is also suitable for an identity card. If you do not have a recent photo, you can also use a selfie taken with your smartphone. Please make sure that your face is not covered by objects or similar.

You will receive an email from us with further information once your student ID incl. the VBB ticket ABC is ready to be picked up from the University. Then send us an email with a proof of payment of 16 euros that you have transferred to the University Cashier (Universitätskasse).

Is your student ID damaged or not working?

The same rules as above apply but you do not have to pay 16 euros to the University Cashier.

Please note: Students with a current student ID do not need the sticker for the temporary transportation pass. Your VBB ticket will be automatically updated after you pay the re-registration fee. You do not need to book a collection appointment.
