New Chip Card Würzburg/Schweinfurt

At the beginning of the winter semester of 2011/2012 students of the universities in Würzburg and Schweinfurt received a new student ID card in the form of a chip card. 

The card has several different functions:

  • student ID card
  • library card
  • semester ticket in Würzburg
  • access controls
  • cashless payment

The contactless electronic purse is operated by the Studentenwerk Würzburg.

If your card is damaged or faulty and you can no longer access your money, we can help you. Please contact your university first, which will issue a new card for you. After that you can transfer the money from your old card to your new card or get your money paid out in cash. For this, however, it is absolutely necessary, that you bring your old card with you.

If you are no longer enrolled at your university and you want the remaining credit balance from your card to be paid out to you, you can also contact the Studentenwerk.

The chip card office (Chipkartenbüro) is located at the Ringpark in the Studentenhaus (above the canteen). We can also provide help on the Hubland Campus on the first floor of the canteen foyer:
