24 Hour Access to the University Library UB 1 (Stadthalle)

Before you can use your UniCard to get access to the University Library, it has to be activated by the access control system.

UniCard holders with a valid user ID and a password from the Computing Center (RZ) can do this on their own by clicking on "User profile“ and then "My data set” in myAccount. In the “UniCard” section you can see whether the access control for your UniCard has already been activated or not.

If not, you can do so by clicking on “activate now”.

After activating your card, you must wait at least 30 minutes for your UniCard to be initialized in the access control system.

If you do not have a Uni-Account, you can do the following:

  • As a staff member of the university, you can set up your own myAccount. To do so, please click on “register” on the start page.
  • All others can inform themselves on the page Application for Staff Members and Students.
  • Students automatically receive a Uni-Account when they enroll at the university.
  • If you prefer to do without a Uni-Account, please contact the technical facility management to get access authorization.

If you do not receive access authorization within an additional 30 minutes, please contact myAccount-administration.

If you do not have a student UniCard or a staff member UniCard, you can only apply for a UniCard as the guest of a department of the university. You can download the application form for a personalized visitors’ card on the following page http://www.unicard.uni-freiburg.de/Formulare-en/Sonstige (please do not forget to have your department fill out the confirmation slip at the end of the form!).

Anybody who does not have a UniCard or who cannot apply for one should contact the library’s user service. It issues its own access cards.

In case of delays in the activation of the closing function, please contact myAccount-administration.

If the doors are malfunctioning, please contact the fault-clearing service at the technical facility management.


Cloakroom Lockers in the University Library UB 1 (Stadthalle)

You can get a key for the Cloakroom Lockers from the automatic key machine. It will be booked onto your library account.

Please note that the library account number printed on your UniCard is only valid after your card has been activated by the University library. This is also a precondition for using the automatic key machine.


Change of the UniCard Terminals and the registration procedure (from summer semester 2008 onwards).

For further information about the changes read the student newsletter 6/2007.
You can now easily print out your certificates of enrollment, change your address or register for the following semester from home.
Unfortunately, you cannot register anymore at the new UniCard Terminals. However, the University of Freiburg now offers the opportunity to pay fees by way of a simple and quick direct debit procedure.
You can still transfer the money or pay it in cash at the Financial Transactions Office.

For more information about this procedure, click on
iTAN” in the list to the left.


Click here to go directly to the login of the new direct debit.
The site also allows you to print out your certificates of enrollment on your own
(pdf) and change your contact details.
(It is no longer possible to print out your certificate of enrollment at the
new terminals.)

You can print out the certificates of enrollment online: https://www.verwaltung.uni-freiburg.de/qis . You'll need a user ID and a password from the Computer Center (RZ).


If you have any questions regarding the RZ account, do not hesitate to contact the user support of the RZ: http://www.rz.uni-freiburg.de/go/benutzerservice .

You do not need an iTAN to print out your certificates of enrollment.
