HAW Hamburg chip card

Student ID

Your chip card at the HAW Hamburg is a multi-purpose electronic matriculation card. The front of the card is your student ID card and semester ticket. It is valid for the duration of your degree programme at HAW Hamburg. All you need to do is validate the card at the start of each semester. The chip card can be extended for another semester once you have successfully re-registered.

Semester ticket

Your HAW Hamburg chip card is also a semester ticket for public transport in Hamburg. With it you can travel on buses, the underground, S-Bahn city trains and local and regional trains in the HVV transport authority area (2nd class). A fee is charged for the "SchnellBusse" express buses; please pay the driver. Up to three children aged 14 or under can travel for free with someone with a valid semester ticket. More information is available on the HVV website.

The semester ticket is valid if the details printed on the chip card are up to date. The "valid to" date is printed on during validation. The costs of the semester ticket are included in the semester contribution.

Library card

You can also use your chip card to borrow books from the HAW Hamburg libraries. You can register online, download the application form online or fill out the form in the library. Please speak to a person at one of the libraries for more information.


You can use the e-purse to pay in HAW Hamburg cafeterias and cafés at Berliner Tor, Finkenau and Bergedorf that are run by Studierendenwerk Hamburg. There is no fee for the use of the e-purse. All tills in the cafeterias and cafés are fitted with little grey card readers which allow you to pay with your chip card. Please follow the instructions of the staff at the till. You can block your e-purse if it is stolen. Please note however, that the card is like cash and we cannot refund any sums used by or paid out to others.
