Important notice concerning Student Cards
Validating TUM Student Cards is currently possible without restrictions.
However, the following regulations apply to the use of MVV transportation in Munich in the summer semester 2021:
- Student Cards with validation/validity for the winter semester 2020/21 are also valid in the summer semester 2021 as MVV travel authorization in the off-peak hours (Mon–Fri 6 p.m. – 6 a.m. and all day on weekends). So if you are unable to validate your TUM Student Card in the summer semester 2021 for some reason, you will still be able to use public transport in Munich.
- A Student Card validated/valid at least for the winter semester 2020/21 is also required to purchase the IsarCard Semester.
- As before, an official photo ID (e.g. ID card) must be carried in addition to the Student Card.
- As before, the certificate of enrollment will not be recognized as a right to travel on the MVV.
Please also refer to the information about the semester ticket on the MVV website.
