5.1.4 Payment of standard fees and dues

The passages below give details of the fees and dues, which students need to pay each semester. The amounts may vary slightly from semester to semester. Naturally, the current rates at any time will have to be paid. [Note: The bank account information below does not apply for renewing registration (► 6.4.5.1)]

1. Matriculation fee (€ 50.00)
This fee must be paid once each semester. Exchange students such as ERASMUS+ students (► 3.7) are exempt.

2. Semester due for the Studierendenschaft (€ 8.50)
All Humboldt students are automatically members of the Studierendenschaft and have to pay a compulsory semester fee. In return, students can elect the Student Parliament in January every year and take advantage of the student counselling services offered by StuPa/RefRat.

3. Semester fee for the Studierendenwerk (€ 54.09)
All Berlin students are required to pay a semester fee for the Studierendenwerk, a student welfare organisation, which is responsible for student dining facilities (student canteens and cafeterias) at the universities in Berlin as well as for the halls of residence (Wohnheime). In addition, it runs a number of counselling services.

4. Semester ticket (€ 201.80)
The semester ticket is a seasonal student ticket for public transport in Berlin. Every Humboldt student is required to purchase the ticket each semester, which gives freedom of travel for the whole semester, i.e. for six months, on the underground (U-Bahn), on the S-Bahn, on buses, trams and ferry boats throughout Berlin, and in Potsdam (fare zones ABC). A bicycle may also be taken along for free. It is a very reasonable price. After all, a standard monthly ticket costs € 80 and is valid only on public transport within Berlin (fare zones AB) (► 9.2.1).

The total amount of € 314.39 in the summer semester 2017 (€ 264.39 for exchange students) has to be paid into the following Humboldt account:
