Campuscard - New TU student card launched

Published on Tuesday, 17.1.2023

TU Dresden has started issuing the new Campuscard to students.

Important information for users of the new TU Campuscard

If you have received a Campuscard, please note the following important information regarding our canteens and cafeterias:

With the new TU Campuscard, the payment function for our canteens and cafeterias is now integrated into your student ID card. A separate Emeal card is no longer necessary, you simply pay by putting on your Campuscard at the cash register.

Return of previous Emeal cards

If you have previously used a MensaCard Emeal, you can return it at the service points in the following dining halls:

  • Alte Mensa
  • Mensa Zeltschlösschen
  • Mensa Siedepunkt
  • Mensologie
  • Mensa Matrix

Please note the current opening hours of the service points in the canteens.

When you return your MensaCard Emeal, any credit on the card and the deposit will be returned to you.

Loading canteen credit onto the TU Campuscard

Paying with the TU Campuscard works very similarly to the way it has worked up to now with the MensaCard Emeal.

To load credit onto your Campuscard, we recommend that you take out an Autoload contract. With Autoload, you can quickly and easily load credit onto your Campuscard via SEPA direct debit as soon as the amount falls below a minimum amount specified by you. In this way, you help us to significantly speed up the processes at the checkouts.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to transfer an existing Autoload contract from a previous MensaCard Emeal; this contract ends when the Emeal is returned.

Please have your user number and password for our card service online portal printed out at a checkout in our canteens upon presentation of your Campuscard. Through the portal, you can easily and conveniently complete your Autoload contract online. You can also use the portal to adjust your Autoload load and minimum amount and track your Campuscard sales.

If you do not wish to use Autoload, you can also load the credit on your Campuscard at any time in cash or with an EC card at the cash desks in our dining halls and cafeterias.
