Removal from the register of students at the TU Dortmund University

Deregistering from TU Dortmund University can take place at any time at your own request. The removal from the register of students ends your rights and obligations as a student and member of TU Dortmund University. You can apply for removal on the current date or at the end of the current semester, but not retroactively.

The date on which the removal from the register of students becomes valid ends...

  • Your membership at the TU Dortmund University
  • Your authorization to take examinations
  • Your entitlement to the Semesterticket NRW/VRR (the AStA will reimburse you proportionally - if possible - for the remaining days of the semester)

You can apply for removal from the register of students in our campus portal . If you still have a UniCard, please submit it to the Student Registration Office. You can also send in your UniCard individually by mail after you have already deregistered. You also have the option of depositing your UniCard directly in the mailbox of the Student Registration Office in front of the building Emil-Figge-Straße 61.

Frequently asked questions about the removal from the register of students

Do I have to re-register if I have already completed all coursework?

No. If you have already completed all your achievements, you do not need to re-register. You no longer need to be enrolled for the assessment of your achievements and the issuance of your graduation documents. You can therefore apply for de-registration.

How do I proceed if I do not yet know whether I have passed or completed all coursework?

If you do not yet know conclusively whether you have completed your studies, you can re-register for your own safety. If you then apply for the removal from the register of students by the last Friday before the start of lectures at the latest and submit an application for a refund in our campus portal , you can have the full semester fee refunded. If you exmatriculate later, you can have the costs for the semester ticket refunded proportionally by the AStA. Information on the start of lectures and other dates and deadlines can be found here.

Where can I get a clearance certificate, a current transcript of grades, or other proof of academic achievement?

Please apply for all of the above-mentioned certificates directly at the examination administration.


The time schedule

Please submit your application for removal from the register of students in our campus portal. After successful removal, a certificate will be made available to you in the campus portal.

This certificate shows your period of enrollment as well as your most recent course of study. This certificate can be used for submission to the pension insurance or for enrollment at other universities. You should therefore keep the certificate in a safe place.

Removal from the register of students ex officio (compulsory exmatriculation)

If, for example, you are officially de-registered at the end of a semester due to a lack of re-registration, you will not receive a de-registration certificate, which you will need later for the pension insurance institution. Therefore, it is absolutely recommended - for example, after passing the final examination - to apply for the removal from the register of students yourself independently.

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”.
