In addition to the subject-related content, there are also many organizational things to do during your studies. Here you can find out more about topics such as re-registration for the following semester, leave of absence or information on exmatriculation.



By transferring the semester fee within the re-registration period set by the university, you initiate the process of re-registering for the following semester. The university will be notified that you are continuing your studies in that semester. Upon successful completion of the re-registration process, you will receive an automated mail to your TU Ilmenau mailbox.

The semester fee is a compulsory, solidarity-based levy that is charged at all universities nationwide in varying amounts. Before each semester, the respective university collects the contribution for the Studierendenwerk and the student body. The contribution is currently € 133.48 (as of 01.01.2023) and consists of the following items: Studierendenwerk Thüringen (€74), Studierendenschaft (€10) and Semesterticket Thüringen (€49.48) (as of 01.01.2023).
