Re-registration and semester contribution

The title "To Do List" is written on a black board. © FreerLaw​/​

Every semester students have to pay a semester contribution in full and on time. Basically, you will be informed about corresponding amounts and account details with the registration documents or the alert to re-register. Under the link below you will also find separately all the information about the bank account, the composition and the use of the semester contribution:

Information for new enrollees:

Composition and use of the semester contribution and bank details (WiSe 2022/2023)

Information for re-registrants:

Composition and use of the semester contribution and bank details for re-registration (WiSe 2022/2023)

In the re-registration notification, you will be given a deadline for payment of the amount, which will allow you to register for the following semester and continue your studies at TU Dortmund University. If you have successfully completed your studies or for other reasons decided to end your studies at TU Dortmund University, please apply for official university withdrawal.

The time of receipt of the money is decisive for compliance with the re-registration period. In the case of transfer/receipt of money after this deadline, a late submission fee of 3.40 euros is to be added to the amount. After the deadline, re-registration cannot take place unless this late fee is paid.

As a rule, the semester fee must be paid in full to re-register.

The composition and the current amount of the fees can be found on the information sheet on the payment of semester fees.

In the event of a leave of absence, the semester fee may be reduced depending on the reason for the leave of absence. The respective amounts can be found in the application for leave of absence.

After the payment has been assigned to your registration number, ...

  • students automatically receive the NRW/VRR semester ticket via their UniAccount. From this point on, it will be possible to request current study certificates via the online services.
  • students simultaneously enrolled at another university can retrieve their certificate of enrollment online after submitting the certificate of enrollment from the first university.
  • guest auditors will receive a certificate of admission as guest auditor by post.

No. If you have already completed the academic performance of our degree program, you do not have to re-register. You no longer need to be enrolled for the assessment of the achievements and the issuance of the graduation documents. You can therefore apply for the removal from the register of students.

If you do not yet know conclusively whether you have completed your studies, you can also re-register for your own safety. If you then are removed from the register of students by the last Friday before the start of lectures at the latest and submit an application for a refund, you can get a full refund for the semester contribution. If you are removed from the register of students later, you can have the costs for the semester ticket refunded proportionally by the AStA. Information about the start of lectures and other dates and deadlines can be found here.

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund University is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is “Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen” (closer to South Campus), and from B 1 / A 40 “Dort­mund-Dorstfeld” (closer to North Campus). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from North Campus to South Campus by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at North Campus and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

TU Dort­mund University has its own train station (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät”). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dort­mund main station (“Dort­mund Hauptbahnhof”) and Düsseldorf main station via the “Düsseldorf Airport Train Station” (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 15 or 30 minutes). The uni­ver­si­ty is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg.

You can also take the bus or subway train from Dort­mund city to the uni­ver­si­ty: From Dort­mund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station “Stadtgarten”, usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At “Stadtgarten” you switch trains and get on line U42 towards “Hombruch”. Look out for the Station “An der Palmweide”. From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dort­mund University leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dort­mund main station to the stop “Dort­mund Kampstraße”. From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop “Dort­mund Wittener Straße”. Switch to bus line 447 and get off at “Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”.

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on North Campus. One (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”) is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the “Technologiepark” and (via South Campus) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at North Campus and offers a direct connection to South Campus every five minutes.

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.

The facilities of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
