Questions and answers about the student ID card

Your name, registration number and library number are visibly printed on the student ID card. A passport photo helps in the visual identification of the student. In addition, the current semester code is printed in clearly legible blue letters on the TRW strip on the back of the card. The letters printed using the thermal process can be deleted at any time and are updated when you re-register, i.e., for each semester.

The printed data and the student's photo are printed once when the chip card is personalised and given to the student when he/she registers.

Print and fill out the Application for a new student ID card.
