Support Services for Ukrainian Students

Numerous institutions support students who have fled Ukraine in all areas of life. Here you will find an overview of various services and contact points.

In launching its own aid program, TUM relies on the solidarity of its community and asks its members, partners, and friends to contribute within their financial means. The goal is to help affected students complete their studies at TUM successfully. 

University President Prof. Thomas F. Hofmann underscores: „We want these students to experience solidarity and transnational friendship and thereby do our part to ensure that they themselves can stand up for a better future without war and hatred.”

If you want to help the students, you can donate to the following account of the TUM University Foundation under the subject "Solidarity": IBAN: DE97 7002 0270 0010 2808 80, BIC: HYVEDEMMXXX. Every euro is welcome and even small amounts help.

Ukrainians who are fleeing their home country because of the war can use public transport in Germany free of charge. 

This applies to all local trains (S-Bahn, Regionalbahn, Regionalexpress, etc.) as well as to all subways, streetcars, light rail systems and buses. The ticket can be either a so-called "0-Euro-Ticket", such as those issued by Deutsche Bahn for long-distance travel, or a valid identification document.
