Student Union Fee

Read out and MP3 download   Read out

All students enrolled at a university the Munich Student Union is in charge of are required to pay 75 euros to the Student Union each semester. Students are required to pay this Basic Fee to their universities before they are matriculated.

The Basic Fee dates back to the concept of a mutually supportive community, from which the Studentenwerke arose. It makes up approx. 10 to 15 per cent of the Munich Student Union’s income. It plays an important role in financing various services for which the Student Union does not receive any subsidies (such as the Advice and Counselling Network or the Culture Bureau) or services which the Student Union must co-finance with its own resources (for instance, its share for the construction of halls of residence or balancing out deficits regarding the canteens). More information on the Basic Fee and it having been raised for the winter semester 2020/21 can be found here.

All students are obligated to pay the Basic Fee regardless of whether or to what extent they use the services offered by the Student Union. Please note: only the official publication of the bylaws at the universities is binding for the effectiveness of the bylaws in accordance with § 5.

The individual universities are responsible for collecting the Student Union fee; it is usually raised before or with matriculation and then transferred to the Student Union. Should you have any questions or claims, please refer to your university’s matriculation office or the Office of the University Registrar.

The bank details for transferring the semester fee vary from university to university: 

students of the LMU

 

students of the TUM

students of the University of Applied Sciences Munich

 

Please request the bank details of other universities from the Office of the University Registrar or from the office responsible for matriculation.

International Student Identity Card

The Munich Student Union is not responsible for issuing International Student Identity Cards (ISIC).

Matriculated students in possession of their student ID can usually obtain an ISIC in travel agencies should their universities not offer this service.
