Multicard – your key to the University
You need a Multicard to access the University’s premises. Our buildings are not open to the public because of the corona pandemic. Therefore, it is important that you pick up your card before the start of the semester in order to access the University's buildings. Without a card and PIN code you will not be able to enter our buildings.
The Multicard is also needed to copy, print, borrow books from the library and when taking an exam. If you pursue a distance education, you can borrow books with your Multicard number. More information about this can be found here.
