We are making every effort to make the new student ID card also available to students at the Landau campus by winter semester 2018/19.

The UniCard is your official student ID card for the Koblenz campus. It replaces the previous student ID card and will need to be presented to enable you to sit exams and participate in university elections - as previously in the case of your old student ID card. The card also serves as the semester ticket for public transport according to fare conditions of VRM and as a payment card in the canteen, and can be used in connection with other services offered by Koblenz student services.

We will require a passport photo for your card, which you can upload through this website. You will need your UniCard with your photo to use your students ID card, your semester ticket and your payment card for the Koblenz student services. Please upload your passport photo until 31st July 2017.

The fee for the first issue of your UniCard is €10. Thanks to sponsorship donations, we have been able to keep the fee at the low end of the legally stipulated cost range. The relevant state regulations on fee charges can be found in section 1 (1) of the State Ordinance on Fees in the Sectors of Scholarship, Continuing Education and Research of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate (WWFGebV) and No 1.4 of the annex to the WWFGebV.

You can use your UniCard for the entire duration of your studies at the University of Koblenz · Landau. At the start of every semester, the actual validity period of your card must be confirmed at one of the validation terminals in Building D of Koblenz Campus.

You can pick up your UniCard in the last week of September (CW 39) as well as in the second, third and fourth weeks of October (CW 41-43) at a counter that will be arranged during that period in the entrance hall of building D. You’ll find the exact dates here. In addition, the card can be picked up during the office hours of UniCard-Support that will be provided by winter semester 2017/18. Please come in person to collect UniCard and bring with you your identity card or passport.

If you lose your UniCard, please cancel it through this website and apply here online for a new card. A fee of €15 will be charged for the issue of a replacement card.
