Tuition fees - where and when to pay? Who may I ask for if something went wrong?

The tuition fees at Kiel University are currently 120 € per semester. You have to pay them for each semester in advance:

  • between 2nd January and 1st February for the summer term and
  • between 1st June to 30th June for the winter term.

The bank transfer document (with your matriculation number as subject) serves as your re-registration.

If you should have missed the dates mentioned above, then you can pay your tuition fees together with a service fee at the student's service office (Christian-Albrechts-Platz 4, no. 85 on campus map).

Please have a look at this site for more details about the re-registration process.

Where's the student's service office/international center?

Both are located on campus near the intersection of the Olshausenstraße with the Westring (cf. campus map). While the student's service office is located at the Christian-Albrechts-Platz 4 (CAP4, no. 85 in campus map), the international center is located in the building of Westring 400 (no. 65 in campus map).

I've read something about the "Semester-Ticket". What is it?

For your tuition fee you'll also obtain a ticket that allows you to use public transport (buses and trains) in Kiel and its periphery without any further charges. The semester ticket is valid for the zone marked violet in this plan. More information is summerized here.

What is the "Kieler Woche"?

The Kiel Week (German "Kieler Woche") is an annual sailing regatta combined with a one-week fair. It is very popular among students as many famous artists and bands are performing during the week. In fact, it is one of the biggest sailing competitions in Europe and also one of the biggest party events in Germany, supposedly bigger than the Bavarian Oktoberfest. On the official website of the Kiel Week you may find a detailed program.
