Please fill out the online form. After receiving a confirmation mail for pickup, you can pick up your card at the State and University Library (Von-Melle-Park 3, 20146 Hamburg) and in some specialized libraries of the university (see card issuing offices). Please bring your student ID card and your identity card as proof of identity.

If you are not a member of the University of Hamburg, please contact the State and University Library of Hamburg.

You can use the library card for electronic borrowing at the SUB Hamburg as well as in other specialized libraries of the University of Hamburg.

At the BIS for Earth System Research this card is currently not valid. But don't worry, a separate registration on site is sufficient to borrow our media. To register at our library, please bring your student card and your identity card with you.
