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.

From now on, all student IDs incl. semester ticket (VBB-Ticket ABC) will be sent by post. If you have used an address in a foreign country in tuPORT, we will not send your student ID by post. In this case, please write us an e-mail.

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, degree objective (e.g. Bachelor, etc.) and a proof of payment of 16 euros. The 16 euros are payable exclusively by bank transfer to the following TU Berlin account:

Berliner Volksbank
IBAN: DE69 1009 0000 8841 0150 03
BIC: BEVODEBB

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.

I think my student ID might not be working - what should I do?

It can happen that your ID is defective through no fault of your own. If your Semesterticket could not be read electronically during an inspection, you will receive a receipt with a transaction number from the respective transportation company. Your student ID will not be confiscated.

Please contact the TU Berlin's responsible office for student ID cards by e-mail as soon as possible (within one week). Should your card be defective, you will receive information how to get a new card free of charge. Please send a photo of your current card plus the receipt from the transportation company with the transaction number by e-mail.

You yourself are required to provide proof of a valid ticket to the transportation company as soon as possible. As a rule, you will need to present a photo of your newly issued student ID as well as your current enrollment certificate when doing so. TU Berlin will not contact the transportation company on your behalf. Please see here for relevant contact forms:

  • BVG
  • S-Bahn Berlin 
  • DB Regio
  • Other transportation companies: Other transportation companies do not provide contact forms for this issue. Please use general contact forms, or email addresses and other contact options provided. Please see the websites of the relevant transportation companies for further details.

You have changed your Name and you need a new student ID?

If you have applied for a name change, then you must apply for a new student ID and you can change your e-mail-address.

To do this, please write us an e-mail with the following content: Reason for reissuing the student ID (name change), matriculation number, your name before name change, your name after name change and a photo of yourself (according to the above specifications) and if you want to change your e-mail-address your new desired e-mail-address (if available). The application for the student ID in case of data change is free of charge for you. Please note: The old student ID will be not valid any more after applying for the new student ID.

You have newly enrolled at TU Berlin before the winter semester 2021/22 and have not yet collected your requested student ID card?

In this case, your student ID has been stored and you can pick it up at TU Berlin. Please write us an e-mail with the following information: first name, last name, date of birth, matriculation number, degree programme and prospected final degree (e.g. Bachelor, etc.).
