Chip card (Access/Copying function)

The ITMZ provides students with a chip card free of charge for the duration of their studies and employees for the duration of their employment at the University of Rostock. Chip cards can only be issued to users with a valid and activated user account and are currently primarily applied for via the portal and are sent by the ITMZ by post.

The chip card can be used as long as the user account is active. When a user account is blocked, the user's chip card is also blocked. The chip card has to be returned after finishing the studies.

Chip cards can be used for printing/copying/scanning or for access to university buildings, premises or even parking spaces of the university. Information on existing access authorisations can also be retrieved via the portal.

In case of defective, broken or non-functioning chip cards, please first contact the telephone number 0381 498-5353. After a check you will receive a new chip card if necessary.

According to the university fee statutes, an administration fee of 10.00 Euros is charged for the loss of the chip card (except for employees of the University of Rostock). The amount has to be paid at the office of the ITMZ or transferred to the account of the University of Rostock. You will receive the payment information by e-mail.
