OTH Student ID card

In addition to all the digital access, you also get a very important physical one! Your OTH Student ID card is so much more than just a student ID: You use it to pay for your food in the cafeteria, borrow books from the library, attend sports classes, and use public transportation in and around Regensburg for free. Always remember: In order to use all functions, the card must be revalidated at the beginning of each semester. The short explanatory video shows you how this works and what the card can do.
