print@campus with MensaCard

For our print and scan service the "print@campus service" is used, which allows you to pay your printouts with a MensaCard from Studentenwerk.

Instructions: How to activate your tubIT print account

Lupe [1]

When you start using print@campus, a tubIT print account will be generated for you. You can charge this account cashless using your MensaCard. For this purpose you will find a MensaCard terminal in EN 004.

The MensaCard terminal only allows you to charge your tubIT print account but not to charge your MensaCard.

Instructions: How to charge your print account

Step 1:

The MensaCard terminal is ready, when you see the text "MensaCard. Bitte einstecken" (Please insert MensaCard). Insert your MensaCard into the card reader.

Step 2:

The left part of the screen shows your MensaCard deposit. The right part allows you to log in with your tubIT credentials.

Step 3:

After login you can see the amount of your deposit from both your MensaCard and your print account. Please choose the amount of deposit you want to transer. You can not transer less than 10 Cents.

Step 4:

After successful transaction please log out by pressing the "LogOut" button or by removing your MensaCard from the terminal.

You can see your account movements at TU Portal using the "print@campus" application.

The MensaCard chargers at TU campus are located at Mensa TU Hardenbergstraße [2] (Hardenbergstraße 34, 10623 Berlin).
