At the office of social affairs, you can file an application for a student ticket refund
due to:

 

  • Social indigence (acute financial difficulties which do not allow one to pay for living expenses, as well as the semester fee)
  • Free travel eligibility in the VRR region
  • Leave of absence
  • Semester abroad
  • Medical reasons which make one unable to use public transport
  • De-registration

 

Depending on the reason for application, different documents are required. Please note the following deadlines:

Applications for the winter semester: Documents must be submitted in full by 27. Feb.!

Applications for the summer semester: Documents must be submitted in full by 28. Aug.!

 

 

If you want to apply for a refund, please make sure to check the following lists for your
specific case and submit all needed documents in due form. If you have any questions, feel free to email us beforehand at [email protected]

Once you have collected all required documents (everything in PDF format), contact us by email with the request for a link. The social department will then send you your personal link and a password.

Following this link you will find your application and you can upload all additional required documents securely. Old application forms are no longer accepted.

Please note that a 14-day deadline for uploading all documents begins when the link is provided. If you have not uploaded everything by then, you will have to submit a new application.
If you have any questions about the required documents, you can send us an email.

 

Please note that we do not have the capacity to send out confirmation emails for receiving your documents. However, if there are any questions regarding your application, we will get back to you.

Application processing generally takes a maximum of 4 weeks, after receiving all required documents. If after this time you still did not receive a refund, please contact us so we can check your applications status.

Shortly before and the month after a new semester, there is an especially high number of applications coming in, so please keep in mind that this might affect processing times.
