Many direct banks (such as ING, DKB, etc.) will no longer issue their customers with giro cards from 1.7.2023, as the provider Mastercard is discontinuing the Maestro payment system worldwide. So-called debit cards will then be used as an alternative.
This decision also has far-reaching effects on the Studierendenwerk’s payment transactions. Please note that our topping up stations do not support debit or credit cards! In these cases, it will only be possible to revalue your student ID or refectory card during opening hours at the payment terminals/checkouts in the cafeterias and refectories or via Autoload.
