Conversion of Student ID


All Austrian universities and university colleges of teacher education are legally required to change all student ID numbers (Matrikelnummer) from seven to eight digits.

Starting 12 May 2017 your current student ID number thus will be preceded by the digit 0. For example:

1600001 = currently valid student ID number

01600001 = valid student ID number after 12 May 2017

Further details available at ZID.

Please make sure to use your new student ID for exams and term papers!
