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 3, 2019).

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, ...

  • Guest auditors will receive a certificate of admission as guest auditor by post.

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 Campus Süd), and from B 1 / A 40 "Dort­mund-Dorstfeld" (closer to Campus Nord). 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 Campus Nord to Campus Süd by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at Campus Nord 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 20 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".

Dort­mund Airport offers flights to several destinations in Central Europe. There are regular connections to Katowice, Kraków, London and Munich. For the approximately 20km-trip from Dort­mund Airport to TU Dort­mund University, you can use a shuttle bus to the railway Station "Bahnhof Holzwickede", from which trains depart to Dort­mund main station (please visit Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Ruhr for more information). Normally, the fastest way is to catch a taxi at Dort­mund Airport.

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on Campus Nord. 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 Campus Süd) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at Campus Nord and offers a direct connection to Campus Süd every five minutes.
