Semester fee

The semester fee is a compulsory, solidarity-based levy that is payable at all universities throughout Germany in varying amounts. Before each semester, the respective university collects the contribution for the Studierendenwerk and the student body. The payment of the semester fee is a prerequisite for the confirmation of re-registration. The contribution is currently € 133.48 (as of 05.01.2023) and consists of the following items: Studierendenwerk Thüringen (€74), Studierendenschaft (€10) and Semesterticket Thüringen (€49.48) . Bank transfer credentials can be found via the Intranet of the TU Ilmenau.

Due date

The semester fee is due no later than the last day of the re-registration period specified in the semester cornerstones for the following semester.

Late payments to the University's designated account will be assessed a late fee.

Remission and Repayment

Remission and repayment are governed by the contribution regulations of the Studierendenwerk Thüringen. Further information can be found here.


In addition to the current semester fee, some students have to pay additional fees according to § 2 Abs. 2 of the ThüringerHochschulgebühren- und -entgeltgesetz (ThürHGEG). The exact fees can be found on the last page of this document Allgemeine Gebührenordnung (38 KB).
