ECUS (Electronic Card University of Stuttgart) is the University of Stuttgart’s student ID card. This is a plastic chip card with a passport photo that is issued during enrolment. The card has a RFID chip that can be used for a range of applications:
- Digital wallet for the canteen, cafeteria and photocopiers,
- Library ID card,
- Key card for buildings and rooms at the university,
- Public transport (in the evenings and on weekends).
And of course the ECUS proves that you are a student at the University of Stuttgart.
The ECUS is valid for one semester and is validated with the ECUS stamp, which must be printed out after enrolling/re-registering for the relevant semester on C@MPUS. To use the ECUS as a VVS ticket after 6 pm and at weekends, you need the VVS semester stamp, which can be printed off from the SSB ticket shop.
