Student ID card
You received your student ID card with your enrolment. In addition to its function as a student ID, the multifunctional chip card serves as a payment card for the refectory and as a ticket for public transport (in accordance with the campus-specific tariff regulations) at both campuses.
At the Kaiserslautern campus, you can also use the student ID card in the following areas:
- Copying / printing
- Basic card Unisport
Landau: Due to technical problems, there are currently delays in UniCard production. We ask for your understanding! To ensure that you can continue to use the benefits of the student card in the meantime, please note the following information:
- Use the semester ticket
- the public transport companies (VRN / KVV) have been informed.
- download your current matriculation certificate from KLIPS to your mobile phone / terminal.
- in connection with your identity card, you can use public transport at the agreed conditions or purchase additional semester tickets.
- Eating in the refectory
- For the transition period, all students without a student ID card can purchase meal tickets at the Mensa food counter on campus.
- If possible, do not purchase the tickets at peak times / during the food counter, but between 7:30 and 11:00.
- The meal tickets can only be paid for with cash.
- The meal tickets do not expire, so the refectory asks you to purchase several tickets if possible.
Newly enrolled students will receive the chip card by post to the address given on their application.
If the chip card is issued very shortly before the start of the semester, you can collect it from the StudierendenServiceCenter. In this case, we will inform you by e-mail.
Your chip card is valid as long as you are enrolled. You will receive the chip card with the printed validity for your first semester.
There are several validators on campus where you can validate your chip card for further semesters. This is possible as soon as you are re-registered for the coming semester.
You can keep the chip card after your studies. If you enrol again at a later date, the card can be reactivated.
If you exmatriculate during the current semester, you must present your chip card at the StudierendenServiceCenter. The date of exmatriculation will be noted on the chip card.
We will decide on the spot whether the fee of 20 € will be charged. Please note that we cannot guarantee to produce the new chip card on the day of application!
The replacement issue is free of charge, for example, if there is a technical problem.
In the event of loss or theft, we can block your chip card and ensure that the deposited credit cannot be used. Therefore, please inform us immediately by e-mail (ssc-kl[at]rptu.de) about the loss. You will receive a replacement card for a fee of 20 €. You will automatically receive all further information on how to apply for a replacement card by e-mail after you have reported the loss.
If the card is found, it will usually be handed in to us. We will inform you by e-mail when you can come and collect your chip card.
In case of repeated issuance (more than 1x per semester), the VRN ticket will no longer be printed on it!
If your last name has changed, please contact the SSC Kaiserslautern team.
To create your UniCard, we need a photo. Please upload this immediately after your enrolment on the following website:
After successful production, your student card will be sent to you by post.
Your UniCard is valid as long as you are enrolled. At the beginning of each semester, the current validity period is printed on it with the help of a validator. Validation for a semester is possible as soon as you have successfully re-registered.
Please note that the student ID card sent to you by post is not yet validated.
If you have problems with the UniCard, contact the SSC in Landau (email@example.com). The team on site can check whether there is a technical defect. In the case of defects that are not your fault (without visible external influence), the replacement card fee of 20 € is not charged.
In the event of loss, we can block your UniCard and ensure that the deposited credit cannot be used. Therefore, please inform us immediately by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) about the loss. You will receive a replacement card for a fee of 20 €.
You will automatically receive all further information on how to apply for a replacement card by e-mail after reporting the loss.

The ID cards of the TU Kaiserslautern and the University of Koblenz-Landau are still valid, provided they have been validated for the current semester.
