Partial Refund of your Semester-Ticket due to the 9€ Ticket

For most of the students at TU Dortmund University, the refunding of the difference in ticket price will happen via a reduced semester fee in the upcoming winter semester. The Reduction is in sum 79,53€, therefore you are paying 133.53€ instead of  213.06€ for The Student Body. Totalized it will be 237.72€ instead of 317.25€. In short, if you remain here at the university, you won’t need to do anything.

This Reduction is not applicable

  • for new Students of the Semester 2022/2023
  • students, who received an AStA hardship application
  • Students in the holidaysemester or
  • People who received a Ticketrefund over the whole time of the 9€ticket (june until august)

Students who can receive a partial refund of the 9€ Ticket are

  • Students who exmatriculate before paying next semesters semesterfee
  • Students who received a partial Ticketrefund between June to August. (We will contact you via Mail)

Students who exmatrikulated can apply for a refund with the Form below.

You have until the 31. Of March 2023 to apply for reimbursement! After that date, we are sadly no longer allowed to reimburse your partial 9€-Ticket-Refund!


First things first: Your semester ticket IS your 9 Euro ticket. You DO NOT need to buy one, you already got one! While driving in the VRR-region, the usual rules about taking your bike or a friend along apply as they always have, you can also still head up to the Netherlands. More information can be found here for the VRR-Region: https://www.vrr.de/de/tickets-tarife/tarifgebiete-regionen-preisstufen and here for the NRW-Ticket part of your Semesterticket: https://infoportal.mobil.nrw/nrw-tarif/nrw-tarif-von-a-z/geltungsbereich-von-tickets-im-nrw-tarif/geltungsbereich-von-semesterticket-nrw-/-nrwupgradeazubi.html Outside of the VRR or NRW, your Semesterticket will act simply as a 9-Euro-Ticket and nothing more. You will not be allowed to take someone with you (or your bike) and you won’t be able to use the ICE, EC or IC trains (Fernverkehr). If you are unsure about anything, do not hesitate to head to the service desks of the Deutsche Bahn you can find in every main station.

These Groups have already received a refund or never payed the semesterfee in the first place and are therefore not eligible for the refund.
You have to apply for a refund, if exmatriculate before the wintersemester 2022/2023 or you have received a partial Ticketrefund for the months between June and August. For the Refund we need your Name, Surname, Matrikelnumber and in some case a Proof of eligibility. (see form below)
