Revalidate your CampusCard

You have to revalidate your CampusCard each semester. Before revalidating you need to pay your semester fee for the next semester. The validation device will reprint your card on the back. The closest one is in D10 (map of all validation devices). Walk completely through the entrance area to a crossing corridor, then turn right and again straight ahead. To the right, near the restrooms, is the validation machine.
