Regulation VVS-StudiTicket

Since the buildings of the university are currently closed, many students do not have the opportunity to validate their student ID. Therefore, the following regulations currently apply to the VVS-Studi-Ticket: For journeys from Monday to Friday between 6:00 pm and 5:00 am the following day and all day on weekends and public holidays, students can use their student identity card in combination with their certificate of enrollment for the winter semester 2020 to identify themselves. This can also be used to purchase a VVS-StudiTicket if required.


VVS-StudiTicket with flexible validity start date

Since 1 August, 2020, a flexible validity start date has generally applied to StudiTicket and Anschluss-StudiTicket. In concrete terms, this means that these tickets can be purchased with a validity start date from the first of each month for a period of six months. They are no longer bound to the term of the semester. The following additional information is available:

  •  Advance sales will continue to take place one month before the start of the validity of the tickets, as before. So if you want to use the ticket from November, you will have to buy it in October.
  •  For online-StudiTickets, the purchase is only possible in the respective semester, due to the electronic authorization check. A matriculation number is required for online purchase. Example: semester period from 01.10. to 31.03. = purchase with validity beginning 01.10., 01.11., 01.12., 01.01., 01.02., 01.03. (within the advance sale period for two months each).
  •  The first month of validity of the ticket can be freely chosen by the students.
  •  The StudiTicket or Anschluss-StudiTicket is valid for six calendar months from the first month of validity.
  •  The authorization to purchase a StudiTicket (valid student ID with VVS imprint as well as Verbundpass or polygoCard) or Anschluss-StudiTicket must still be presented when purchasing at a VVS sales office. This authorization must be valid for at least the first month of validity of the StudiTicket or Anschluss-StudiTicket.
