Once a CampusCard is issued, you agree to respect the latest version of the Usage rules at Kassel University Library. As soon as the card is ready to be picked up, usually after 1 or 2 days, you will get an e-mail notification.

The original issuance of the library card is free of charge. However, fees will be charged for re-issuing a CampusCard that has been lost. If your personal data change, please contact Kassel University Library.

The library card is an element of the CampusCard and therefore property of Kassel University. In case of loss, please contact the library immediately.

The following persons are entitled to use the library:

  • Kassel University staff and members
  • persons aged 16 and over (with a declaration of consent from their parents/legal guardians)
  • persons with a place of residence in Germany for at least 3 months
