University Card / Guest Card


The university card (Mitarbeiterkarte) can be used for several university services such as using the library, gaining access to a building or paying the meal for a discounted price at the cantine (Mensa). As a regular employee you can receive the university card immediately after signing the contract at the personnel department (Personalabteilung).

A guest card (Gästekarte) is issued for a person who is doing research at the Georg-August-Universität for a limited time without having a contract with the university. If you need such a guest card please contact your Institute to get in touch with the card office (Kartenstelle).
