UPDATE 31.05.2023

Dear students,

the upgrade solution is imminent - the administration of the UdK is currently examining all data protection-relevant points at full speed in order to be able to guarantee you secure access. 

The process:

  1. You log in to a UdK portal (https://abo.ride-ticketing.de/app/login?partnerId=b70f6159a989f9e14b71768f01de7d56) with your campus management access data (Oase access data).
  2. In the following you will get an overview of the data that have to be transmitted - you have to agree to this.
  3. You will be taken to the so-called "Campus Portal", a platform of the BVG in cooperation with the service provider "RIDE".
  4. You choose when you want the subscription to start (only possible on the 1st of the month).
  5. You add the information about the ticket holder.
  6. You will now be shown an order overview and offered a payment method (PayPal, credit card, SEPA).
  7. You will be redirected and complete the payment process.
  8. You will receive your digital ticket and can start your journey immediately.


Dear students,

Please note that the 49€ ticket valid as of today is not included in the semester ticket!

The AStA, the UdK, the VBB and the Berlin Ministry of Transport are currently working on an upgrade solution. This upgrade will be bookable on a voluntary basis and will cost 13.95 euros/month for each student. The total will be the €49 ticket minus the regular semester ticket price per month (€35.05). 

We are working towards introducing the ticket on 01 June 2023.

Until then, there are still some questions to be answered. 

- For example, we do not yet know whether the upgrade model can be booked on a monthly basis or whether it has to be paid for the rest of the semester.

- We are currently checking whether the machines at the UdK can print the 49€ ticket on the semester ticket.

As soon as there is more information about the upgrade model, we will let you know. 

Thank you for your understanding

Your AStA

Paid Opportunity: Student Election Committee

28.03.23 • admin_asta

Dear students,

next May it's that time again: the StuPa election is coming up and we are looking for committed members for the Student Election Committee (SWV). As a member of the SWV, you have the chance to be directly involved in the organisation and implementation of the election and thus make an important contribution to the democratic shaping of our university.

We are looking for a total of three people for the election committee, who will jointly plan and conduct the election. It is an advantage if you already have experience with election procedures or can quickly familiarise yourself with new topics. But also newcomers are welcome and will be actively supported by us.

As a member of the SWV you have a responsible task: you plan and organise the election, make sure it runs smoothly and announce the election results. In return, you will have the opportunity to gain valuable experience in the field of democratic participation and to expand your skills in organising processes.

In addition to the members of the election committee, we are also looking for election helpers to support us in preparing and conducting the election. Again, it is not a prerequisite to have previous experience. We are happy about every helping hand!

The election committee is actively supported by the central election committee. They will draw up a timetable and schedule for the election, help with advertising the election and provide you with all the necessary information and materials.

And the best part? As a board member you can receive up to €600 tax-free, regardless of your current job. As an election worker you can receive up to €300. And that too, tax-free and independent!

We are accepting applications for the election committee and election workers until 14.04.2023. Please send your application to stupa@asta-udk-berlin.de and briefly describe how you have

  • have previous experience in organising activities

  • have experience or interest in university politics and

  • have ideas on how to reach as many students as possible for the election.

    If you have any questions or uncertainties, please feel free to contact us at any time. We look forward to receiving your applications and to meeting you.

    Best regards The StuPa

What is the Semester Ticket Office?

The semester ticket office is an institution of the student body. The main task of the Semester Ticket Office is to administer the social fund from which subsidies for the semester ticket are paid out. We also exempt students from paying the semester ticket fee if, for example, they are not in Berlin for study reasons or cannot use the ticket for another recognised reason according to the semester ticket statutes. Our way of working is collective and self-organised, which means a lot of work, but also a lot of room for our own ideas and design.

What needs to be done?

  • personal and telephone counselling
  • file processing, database maintenance, cooperation with other university administrative departments and communication with transport companies
  • working self-organised in a collective and developing the work and tasks of the Semesterticket Collective further

The following skills are desirable:

  • ability to work in a team, social competence, reliability, open and friendly manner
  • independent and reliable assumption of responsibility and a desire to contribute to the collective independently
  • Knowledge of german and foreign languages
  • Willingness to get to know the university's political structures and to work in ASTA
  • Open, friendly and patient approach to applicants and in counselling situations
  • Willingness to familiarise yourself with the databases of the semester ticket office and to deal with bureaucratic procedures.

The job offers the following:

  • A working time of 40-60 hours per month (optionally, a different number of hours per month is possible)
  • Employment 13,00€/hour gross
  • A fixed-term appointment of two years (option to extend is currently unclear).
  • The opportunity to work in a self-organised way and to develop the area of responsibility creatively.
  • an open and appreciative working atmosphere

We would particularly like to encourage applications from

  • People with care responsibilities for children (esp. single parents) or relatives.
  • People who are female, queer, trans* and/or inter*.
  • People with a migrant background and/or BIPoC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour), Jews, people who are racially marked.
  • People who have to earn their own living.
  • People with chronic illnesses and disabilities.
  • Severely disabled people are given preference if they are equally qualified.
  • For us, enrolment at the TU Berlin or UdK Berlin is an important criterion.

Please send your meaningful application with CV and WITHOUT photo until 21.02.2023 (date of receipt) to:

AStA TU Berlin

Sek.: TK 2, Finanzreferat

Straße des 17 Juni 135

10623 Berlin

Invitation: LOOM Interweaving the Arts in Europe | European Alliance of Academies

12.12.22 • admin_asta

Dear Students of the Universität der Künste,

LOOM Interweaving the Arts in Europe is an artistic project of the European Alliance of Academies, an transnational network of currently 68 art academies and cultural institutions from all over Europe, initiated by the Akademie der Künste in Berlin. They are all united by the will to stand in solidarity against nationalist appropriations in art and culture and to stand up for the freedom of art.


On Friday, December 16, 2 - 4 p.m.,12 young and international LOOM Fellows will present their artistic work to the attending representatives of European art and cultural institutions as well as young students and Berlin based artists. They represent ten young positions from our network that are dealing with cultural-political topics. Afterwards, there will be a discussion about the possibilities of artistic collaboration in the digital space. Prof. Norbert Palz, President of the Berlin Universität der Künste that is a member of the Alliance, will moderate the discussion; Prof. Kristoffer Gansing will give a theoretical input. Following the discussion, the LOOM Fellows will be available for a collegial exchange.

As a member of the European Alliance of Academies, we would like to involve the Universität der Künste in the future development of the platform and experience the perspective of young artists in this part of the event.

We cordially invite you to the meeting of the European Alliance of Academies, which will take place on December 15 and 16, 2022 at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin.

As the number of places is limited, we kindly ask you to register by December 122022. In the attachment (left column) you will find the overall program, to which you are also warmly welcome. The entrance is free.

If you have any questions, please contact the project manager Mrs. Christiane Lötsch allianceofacademies@adk.de.
