The socalled CampusCard is your student ID and public transportation ticket. You need to get it from a CampusCard machine. To do that you need a QR-Code that you get get via the ZEDAT-Portal. Afterwards you need to validate the card at a validation machine. You can find both machines in the basement of the Studierenden-Service-Center at Iltisstraße 4 near the subway station U-Bahnhof Dahlem-Dorf. Once you are there, just follow the signs.

You can find further information here.
