The TUC-Card is a multi-functional student-ID-card, which includes the following functions in one card:

  • Student-ID with passport photo and duration of validity
  • Library card
  • Access to PC-Pools
  • Wallet for dining hall
  • Wallet for copy services of TU Chemnitz

In order to assure the operability of these functions, the card has to be activated after each re-enrolment at a TUC-Card-Terminal, which are situated at the building Straße der Nationen 62 in front of the Student Service and at the building Reichenhainer Straße 70 at the "Tower Building" ("Turmbau")


On TUC-Card-Terminal you can renew data on your TUC-Card (student card). This is required in the following cases:

  • after re-matriculation
  • when bad readable overprint


Terminals are located on:

  • Straße der Nationen 62 (near Student Service)
  • Reichenhainer Straße 70 ("Tower Building") entrance hall ground floor
