Information printed on the KU.Card includes the student’s last name, first name, date of birth, photograph, student registration number and user ID and identifies the holders as members of the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt. Students who have not uploaded a photograph to be printed on their KU.Card must in addition carry a valid identification document (ID card, passport).
Student ID: Use the KU.Card in order to provide proof of your student status (e.g. for identification in examinations or for student discounts on entrance fees etc.)
Library card: Use the library user number and barcode on the back to borrow books from the University Library (Use the University Library)
Canteen card: Use your KU.Card to pay for meals in the canteen of the Studentenwerk Erlangen-Nürnberg; you can load money onto your KU.Card at the available terminals (Studentenwerk)
Printing/copying and scanning: You can use the printing terminals at the KU and pay for your prints and copies cashless with your KU.Card (KU Printing systems)
Students receive their KU.Card upon enrollment.
1. In case of loss, please report your KU.Card as lost and block it online at https://card.ku.de
You can also unblock the card on this website again if you find it. If a new KU.Card needs to be issued, you will generally be charged € 20 (unless the card has to be reissued due to a defect). This amount is immediately payable, either by bank transfer or in cash in the cashier's office. As soon as a new card is printed, the old card loses its validity. Any money still available on the old KU.Card will be transferred to the new card. You can update your photograph using the above portal before a new KU.Card is issued.
2. Furthermore, please delete the card ID in the follow-me printing system immediately: https://www.ku.de/urz/pcounter/
If you would like to add a photograph on your KU.Card later on, please upload a picture on card.ku.de. Please note that the picture must fulfill the following specifications (similar to a passport photo):
The costs for production of a new KU.Card are €20 and will be charged to you. The same applies if you have uploaded a picture that is not suitable and the KU.Card cannot be issued for that reason.
The KU.Card is valid until the end of the respective current semester. Following successful re-registration, you can then re-validate your KU.Card and extend validity for the following semester:
As soon as you have successfully transferred the semester fees (€44.50) within the re-registration period, you are successfully re-registered for the following semester. As a rule, it takes up to five days to process your bank transfer for your re-registration; afterwards, you will be able to extend validity of your KU.Card for the next semester at a validation terminal.
Please note: Without the date printed on the back, the KU.Card is invalid and cannot be used as student ID.
