Task Force Sustainability

The Sustainability Task Force is concerned with the ecologically and socially sustainable development of the campus, the university and the study program.

We develop new ideas or support existing ones to make the university climate-neutral in the long term and to bring sustainability more into focus for students.

Task Force on University Political Commitment

With the help of this task force, the university political work of the StuPa (Students’ Parliament) and AStA is to be made more visible and accessible to students.

The meetings of the task force will be scheduled each time and then shared via social media channels.

For suggestions or questions about the task force, please feel free to contact: hopo@asta.tu-dortmund.de. We look forward to any collaboration!

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.
This Reduction was not applicable
  • for new Students of the Semester 2022/2023
  • students, who received an AStA hardship application
  • Students in the holidaysemester or
  • or People who received a Ticketrefund over the whole time of of the 9€ticket (june until august)
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)

    Technology rental

    The technology rental is for students of the TU

    • who need a short-term replacement while they acquire new hardware
    • who need to save money over a longer period of time to be able to buy a new PC
    • who only need a headset or webcam for a short time and do not want to purchase it directly for this purpose.

    The rental is intended for students in need and we currently have only a few devices available. So if you have enough resources (e.g. money) to make the purchase yourself, we ask you not to use our lending service! Then we can help more students who need the loan to continue their studies.

    To achieve this goal we have two lending formats:

    regular loan hardhsip case loan
    durationmax. 2 monthsmax. 6 months
    Which one should I chose?Your laptop/headset/webcam is broken and…
    … you need a replacement urgently.
    … you need 1-2 months to save for a replacement.
    … you need some time to find a good offer.
    You need a headset/webcam for a few meetings and don’t want to buy your own.
    Your laptop/headset/webcam is broken and…
    … you need a replacement urgently.
    … you need more than 2 months time to save for a replacement.
    You don’t have a laptop/headset/webcam and urgently need one for university.
    What we need from you:– Online application with uploaded certificate of study (name, matriculation number, course of study & semester)

    – desired borrowing start and end date

    – written justification

    -> upload online application and certificate of study

    – certificate of study (name, matriculation number, course of study & semester)

    – desired loan start and loan end date

    – written justification: Why is your case a

    – Accepted hardship request OR

    -3 months of bank statements

    -Proof of your housing costs, health insurance, and children, if applicable.

    – Verification of acceptance according to current hardship guidelines. More details can be found here.

    -> upload online application, certificate of study and other documents

    In special and justified cases, the loan can be extended by half of the loan period (i.e. by 1 or 3 months). Please contact us for this purpose. Unfortunately, we can only allow the extension if we have enough equipment available and no students are on the waiting list.

    Lending procedure

    The loan works like this:

    1. Application and verification
      You submit an application online (see Application form under the point Documents). This will be checked by the social team and either accepted or rejected. You will receive a response within a maximum of 2 weeks.
    2. Conclusion of contract
      If your application is accepted, the loan will be carried out in the AStA. You will have to sign a loan contract (see Documents below) and a receipt. For this purpose, bring your current certificate of study with a valid identification document to the personal check. After signing the contract you will receive the device(s).
    3. Return of the device(s)
      With the return and confirmation of the return, the contractual relationship and thus the loan ends. For this we will meet again at the AStA. If you have any questions, please use the contact form under the point Problems and Questions.

    The Contract

    In order to carry out the loan, some things must be regulated to give you the security, for how long and what conditions you get the equipment. For this reason, a contract is concluded between us. In doing so, both parties enter into obligations that are briefly summarized below.
    The summary does not replace a careful reading of the contract!

    Obligations of the AStA:

    • free provision of a functioning loan object
    • Loan for the fixed period of time

    Your obligations

    • punctual return of the device in the borrowed condition
    • assumption of liability during the loan period
    • assumption of costs in case of loss or damage
    • no transfer to third parties
    • no borrowing costs
    • let us know immediately if something does not work!
    • For any questions and problems use the contact form under the point problems and questions.

    How-to use

    The laptop comes with Windows 10 pre-installed. You are welcome to install other operating systems if you want. Any other programs you need you have to install and pay for yourself. In many cases, the university and the faculties have cooperation agreements for programs that you need in your studies. You can find the offers from the university here:
    Among them is Office365 for 5 devices with a total price of 4,99€ per year or Citavi, which is free.
    Alternatively, there are freeware options for most commercial products, for example the office program Libreoffice: https://de.libreoffice.org/.

    When the device is returned at the end of the loan period, we will delete all data from the device and reset the PC to factory default before loaning it again.

    Do not unscrew the device during the period of use.
    If it seems necessary, be sure to contact us beforehand!

    The headset is plug and play as of Windows 10. This means the driver should already be pre-installed. For older Windows versions and for other operating systems, do your own research first and if you have problems, you can ask us.

    The webcam also only needs to be plugged in and should be recognized and usable directly from Windows 10. In case of problems or other operating systems, do your own research first and ask us if you have any problems.
