Semester Tickets

As part of the university elections, which take place in January of each year, the students decide in the form of ballots whether so-called semester tickets will be introduced for the coming semesters. In the last election in 2021, the students voted in favour of the continuation of a rail, bus and cultural semester ticket.

We have compiled the most important information on these three solidarity tickets on the following pages:

You can find the exact list of all conditions in the current information flyer (unfortunately we can only offer this in german). The supplementary sheet is also available in printed form, for example for your wallet. You can pick it up at the AStA building (Goßlerstraße 16a) or at the glass box in the Central Lecture Hall Building between lecture halls 010 and 011, as well as at the Student Affairs Office at Wilhelmsplatz.

How to extend your semester tickets

In order to extend the validity of your semester tickets for the next semester, you must have your Student ID Card, also known as Chip Card, reprinted after you have re-registered (i.e. transferred the semester fee for the following semester). Reprinting can be done via one of the printers provided for this purpose, which writes the new end date of the validity of your semester tickets on the Student ID Card. You need to bring your existing Student ID Card, as the printer does not print a new one. Here is the current information regarding the printers’ availability:

“For the validation of the chip card (student ID) the printer for renewing cards in the ZHG is available to be used in compliance with the current regulations for protection against infections. The printer is accessible via the ZHG entrance opposite the Oeconomicum on weekdays from 10:00 to 17:00. Users must keep a distance of 2.5m from all other people and must without fail wear a face mask to cover their nose and mouth. The printers to renew cards in the UMG and Physics libraries are also available again.
The printer to renew cards at Wilhelmsplatz 4 is not yet available due to the current situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The Chip Card Office itself will also remain closed to the public.”
