Semester ticket

The Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences participates in the semester ticket provided by the Münchner Verkehrsverbund since the 2014 summer semester.

The MVV semester ticket consists of a mandatory solidarity contribution of € 67,40 (from the 2018 summer semester) for all students, which includes a temporary travel permit for the entire MVV network with a student ID and a semester ticket (IsarCard Semester) with an unlimited travel permit across the entire MVV network, which students can voluntarily purchase at ticket machines and MVV outlets.

The solidarity contribution is collected by the university, together with the Student Union fee, for students at the Weihenstephan campus upon re-registration or enrolling and forwarded to the Student Union.

Triesdorf students fall under the Erlangen-Nuremberg Student Union's responsibility and are excluded from the semester ticket.

When first printing the MVV logo on the Student.Card, the travel permit is only valid from the semester for which the student has enrolled or re-registered.

Scope of the travel permit

The Student.Card with the MVV logo printed on it is a valid semester ticket for the duration of the validity period printed on the card in conjunction with a valid ID and includes the following travel authorisation:

  • Monday to Friday between 6:00p.m. and 6:00 a.m. the following day
  • No time restrictions on Saturdays, Sundays, public holidays and on 24 and 31 December
  • The travel permit is valid for the entire MVV network
  • The travel permit is valid for all approved network transport in 2nd class (suburban trains, underground trains, trams, buses and approved regional trains)
  • The travel permit is valid from the first to the last day of the relevant semester (in the summer semester: 15/03–30/09 / in the winter semester: 01/10–14/03)

A valid ID must always be displayed as clear identification during checks.

Zone or time tariff tickets must be purchased for trips that take place before or after the period of validity of the travel permit with the Student.Card.

IsarCard Semester

The IsarCard Semester costs € 195,70 (from the 2018 summer semester) and is a voluntary ticket that is valid for a semester.

  • The IsarCard Semester permits unlimited trips across the entire MVV network without time restrictions
  • The travel permit is valid for all approved network transport in 2nd class (suburban trains, underground trains, trams, buses and approved regional trains)
  • The travel permit is valid from the first to the last day of the relevant semester (in the summer semester: 15/03–30/09 / in the winter semester: 01/10–14/03)
  • The IsarCard Semester is valid for a semester and until midday the following day

The IsarCard Semester can be purchased from the following places:

  • MVG ticket machines (e.g. at underground stations)
  • DB ticket machines within the MVV network (e.g. at suburban train stations)
  • Ticket machines on MVV regional buses
  • MVG Customer Centre
  • Private MVG outlets (kiosks and the like, predominantly in the Munich city area)
  • BOB Customer Centre

To purchase the IsarCard Semester you must have your Student.Card and provide or enter your matriculation number. The purchase receipt that is always issued when purchasing the IsarCard Semester should be stored in a safe place, as only one replacement card is issued with this purchase receipt if you lose your IsarCard Semester.

Please note: Please do not laminate the IsarCard Semester or the purchase receipt, as this is printed on thermal paper which becomes illegible if heat is applied. This will destroy your proof of purchase. Sleeves for your semester ticket can be obtained from Student.Service.
