The Student Guest Card
Here we answer the most frequently asked questions about payment with Student Guest Card:
The Student Guest Card is a payment method for
- students of all Aachen universities (except Katho)
- bridge course students who have not received their BlueCard/FH Karte yet
- all students enrolled at other German universities
When paying with the Student Guest Card you always have to present your student ID/bridge course certificate.
The Student Guest Card is sold for a €2 deposit (plus €3 minimum loading amount) at the card terminals in our dining halls.
When paying with a Student Guest Card, showing the student ID is necessary in order to receive a subsidized menu (€1,50 to €3,90).
You top up the card with cash at the card terminals. Most terminals only take bank notes and none of them give change.
The Student Guest Card is not personalized, which means that you cannot be identified as the owner if you lose it. As it would not be safe, a registration for AUTOLOAD is not possible with Student Guest Cards.
The Student Guest Card can be returned at the Infopoint of Studierendenwerk. The deposit of 2 € will be refunded if the card is fully functional and has no defects.
External guests who do not eat at students prices can use the Guest Card (price: 2 €). They are available at the Infopoint as well as the checkouts (except Mensa Academica). The balance is refunded in Mensa Vita (Coffee bar), in Mensa Bayernallee (Coffee bar) and in Mensa Jülich. More information
