Activating the UCCard as a library card

For students of the University of Cologne: Your UCCard must be activated as a library card so that you can pass through our new gateway!

Log in with your student account. You can then use your UCCard as a library card.
The (library-) user number and barcode is located on the back side of the UCCard.

You already possess a library card:

  • The user number of your library card matches that of the UCCard? Then you can use your UCCard immediately and destroy the old card.

  • The user number does not match that of the UCCard? Then please come to the Registration & Interlibrary Loans return counter (Bibliotheksausweise & Fernleihrückgabe) and present your UCCard together with your former card.

Problems with activation
Please consult library staff at the Registration & Interlibrary Loans return counter (Bibliotheksausweise & Fernleihrückgabe):
