Paying with your Tilburg University card

The Chipknip (an electronic purse system that was used in the Netherlands) is discontinued since January 1, 2015. This means that the payment method at printers and vending machines for coffee, soft drinks, and snacks on campus has changed.

Various options have been explored, on the basis of which we have decided to opt for a closed payment system: the e-wallet. You can use your Tilburg University card to link to the e-wallet.

You can load value onto your e-wallet both via the internet and at the physical loading station.

  • Before you can use your e-wallet, you will first need to link it to your Tilburg University card. You can do so at one of the printers or at the loading station in the Library (so not at a vending machine). You will only have to do this once.
  • You can put money on your card online via myNetPay. In your account you indicate how much money you want to add to your electronic wallet and pay using Ideal or Paypal.
  • You can also load value onto your e-wallet at the loading station in the study cafe inside the Library's study cafe.
  • If you don’t have a Tilburg University card, there are various other types of cards you can link your e-wallet to (see the FAQ section). If you only seldom visit campus, you can get a guest pass. These are available at the desk of the Library.
