Reregistration means that you affirm, by transferring the semester fee, your wish to remain registered for the next semester. As soon as the university has received your semester fee, your registration will be extended automatically for the next semester.

The reregistration deadline for the winter semester 2022/2023 is

23th July 2022.
Price advantage due to 9-Euro-Ticket

The price advantage of 85.70 euros for the semester ticket for the summer semester 2022, which arises from the 9-Euro-Ticket in the months of June, July, August, can unfortunately not be offset against the semester fee for the winter semester 2022/23 for technical reasons.
Nevertheless, the price advantage will be passed on in full to those students who have received a semester ticket.
We expect to refund the above amount by the end of October at the latest and will inform you about the further procedure promptly and ask for a little patience until then.
