Re-registration and semester fee

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

Every semester students have to pay a semester fee 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 fee:

Composition and use of the semester fee and bank details (as of June 15, 2021).

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.

If you don’t yet have a UniCard, please request that it be issued. Further in­for­mation can be found under UniCard & Student ID.

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 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 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 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”.
