The CAMIPRO card
is your EPFL student (or staff) card. It is therefore a sort of EPFL identity card. It is an electronic chip card, that allows you to use a variety of functionalities, and to benefit from a number of advantages. Your CAMIPRO card plays the role of electronic wallet, and thus will allow you to pay in the miscellaneous campus shops and stores without any ready cash (and to get a discount in some cases). Your card is also your personal means to access some protected rooms, to borrow a bike, to get a discount in selected external stores.
Restaurants, shops and services
You will be called over to the HR department to complete some forms for tax reasons and to give your bank account number in order for them to deposit your salary (Most money here is transferred electronically rather than issuing cheques). They will also explain all the taxes to you.
The HR department is here to:
Advice and assist all the EPFL employees at all levels.
Administration for more than 5‘000 persons representing more than 100 different professions.
Administration of the salaries for all EPFL employees.
Make sure that the laws and legal aspects are respected among the community.
