Handout of access card for our PC pools (Container building)

You can get the access cards only at our helpdesk located in the CIP buildung. You may need assistance from one of your fellow students, who already has a card, to enter the building.

Important notes:

  • You need an account at the institute to get an access card. An extension of your account is required at least three days before getting the card.
  • Please keep your old access cards, they are still needed for access to the Altbau.
  • An application for an account (or the extension) can be filed in the mailroom, left of the building entrance. See user accounts for more information.
