Semester Ticket & semester ticket refund

The semester ticket is a public transport ticket, which allows students unlimited travel on Hamburg's public transport system of underground trains and buses.

1. Pay your semester contribution to the university

2. Apply to the Studierendenwerk Hamburg (Grindelallee 9, 20146 Hamburg) for a refund with the following papers: application form, proof of not being in Hamburg, e.g. copy of internship contract, letter of acceptance from partner university

3. When your refund application is approved by the Studierendenwerk Hamburg you will receive a confirmation letter

4. Give the confirmation letter to the Chip Card Office and they will delete the dates on your chip card. They will also provide you with a letter of confirmation which you need to give to the Studierendenwerk Hamburg

5. On receiving the letter of confirmation the Studierendenwerk Hamburg will refund the semester ticket
