HFU students can rent the Renault ZOE electric car on the Schwenningen or the Furtwangen Campus at special rates over the university's partner, my-e-car.

Here's how to do it:

    A credit card is necessary for payment. If you do not have a credit card check out this website for free credit card offers.
  2. Register with my-e-car
    Enter "Hochschule Furtwangen" and your HFU matriculation number (e.g. HFU-123456) and your HFU email address ...@hs-furtwangen.de
