Semester Ticket Munich

On the Move in Munich: Since the winter semester 2013, students of the TUM and other Munich universities get the semester ticket. The ticket is valid for the underground and suburban trains, as well as all trams, buses and some regional trains in entire Munich public transportation network (MVV). All students must pay the fee for the basic ticket as part of their student fees. You may also purchase the IsarCard Semester to have 24 hour access to the MVV network.

Delays in card printing / Alternative ticket for MVV

Please note: Due to delivery problems with chip cards, there are currently delays in the printing of Student Cards and MediCards.

Between 01.10.2022 and 31.12.2022, MVV will therefore exceptionally also accept enrollment verifications printed, sealed and signed by TUM as tickets. You can receive these at the Service Desk.

Basic ticket: evenings and weekends

All students are obliged to pay a basic semester fee. This fee is col­lected together with the Student Union Fee upon enrollment. The basic semester ticket authorizes students to use all forms of transpor­tation within the entire MVV network on week­days be­tween the hours of 6 pm and 6 am, as well as on weekends and holidays. More: MVV home page

Supplementary Ticket: Travel any time

IsarCard Semester: For students planning to use their semester ticket to travel to and from the university every day, we recommend the “IsarCard Semester”. It costs 209.30 euros in the winter semester 2022/23 (224.70 euros from the summer semester 2022) and aut­ho­ri­zes stu­dents bearing a student ID card and official photo ID to use all forms of trans­por­ta­tion within the entire MVV network without restrictions.

Where and when can I buy the IsarCard Semester?

  • Basic ticket: You can use your student ID when travelling in the MVV network after validating it for the semester. The student ID is only valid as ticket in conjunction with an official photo ID (e.g. passport or driving licence).
  • IsarCard Semester: Beginning on 2 September 2013, the IsarCard Semester will be available for purchase at all customary outlets of the MVV (machines, kiosks, etc.). For more information consult the MVV home page. 

Exemption from the Solidarity Contribution

An exemption from the obligatory solidarity contribution is available only for disabled and chronically-ill students upon submission of a formal request.

To apply for the exemption, you must show proof of your entitlement to travel free of charge in public transportation (together with addendum and token from the Ministry of Family and Social Affairs).

Applications must be submitted directly to the university in which you are enrolled. For continuing TUM students, the deadlines for submission are as follows: 15 February for summer semester; 15 August for winter semester. For first-semester students the deadlines are 15 March for summer semester and 15 September for winter semester.

Students enrolled simultaneously at both the TUM and another university (e.g. those in teacher training programs or sport and health sciences programs) should submit their application to the university in charge of their degree program.
