The CAU Card is used for the entire duration of your studies at Kiel University.


After each successful re-registration, the CAU Card can be validated at one of the self-service terminals at the beginning of each semester.
At the same time, the validity as prepaid card for the Canteen is renewed.

When you insert your card into a self-service terminal, the terminal uses a thermo procedure to remove the old print on the gray strip on the bottom of the card and to print the new information about semester onto that strip.

Currently there are 7 stations installed at following sites:

  1. Tower building (CAP4) - foyer
  2. Canteen 1 - main entry
  3. Canteen 1 - main entry
  4. Canteen 2 - foyer
  5. Central library - foyer
  6. Canteen TF - printer room
