Current information

Please note that masks are mandatory at Bielefeld University.

Masks must be worn in the central university hall, on all circulation areas and in social rooms in the university buildings. Masks worn are required to be at least medical-grade masks (so-called surgical masks).

To keep the risk of infection as low as possible, please first use our service hotline +49 521 106 66 66 or our contact form. If you would like a personal consultation, you can contact the Infopunkt daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. or contact the respective administrators during office hours.

In particularly urgent cases, the Student Office will also accept the submission of signed documents by e-mail until further notice - except for the documents required for enrolment / change of degree programme. Therefore, please send us these documents by mail in due time or drop them in the mailboxes of the Student Office or the university's mailboxes. If the required documents cannot be submitted in time, please contact the Student Office directly.

Please understand that there may be delays in the processing of your requests by the Student Office.

Is there an option to forgo the semester ticket and thereby reduce the semester fee by the amount paid for the semester ticket, in the case of the winter semester being online only again?

Unfortunately, there is no such option. Paying the entire amount of the semester fee is required to complete re-registration. There are contracts between the student body and public transport services regarding the semester tickets that are binding and need to be fulfilled. However, in cases of hardship the AStA – as has always been the case – offers the possibility to apply for an exemption from the semester ticket.

What are the intended purposes of the semester fee in this and the upcoming semester? Many of the services it is usually intended for are not available

The university forwards the semester fee to the AStA, the Studierendenwerk and the transport companies. There the contribution is used for the services of the Studierendenwerk (various advisory services including BAföG, student housing, etc.), the AStA (social loans, etc.) as well as the ticket offer. The NRW-Ticket and the semester ticket can be used; trains, trams and buses are running.


From 01 August 2022, the UniCard must again be collected from the InfoPunkt. The issuance can always take place only if you have taken the necessary steps (➔ photo-upload). Please be patient and allow for some time for your card to arrive.

Please note that the Unicard will only be handed out to you if you have never had a card from Bielefeld University before. For example, if you have a service card as an employee, have been a student here before, or have a library card as a library user or guest student, you must first send this old card to Infopunkt, Studierendensekretariat. You will then receive your new student card. If you still have an intact student card, you can even simply validate it and continue using it. If the old card is lost, please contact the Zentrale Leihstelle.

If you have any questions about Unicard, please contact
