Printing instructions

Don’t have a chip card?

Copy cards (without credit) are available at the Main Library lending desk for €7.00. You can top up your copy card at the debit card top-up machines in the Main Library and the Departmental Library for Law. To use the printers, you must register your copy card when using it in the University Library for the first time.

We offer individual copy cards for institutes and chairs: Order and top-up form (PDF, 130 KB, in German only).

Some devices also work without a chip card. You must pay cash to use these devices (only coins, no change given).
