Students in Frankfurt am Main automatically pay a certain fee for the semester ticket within their semester contribution. With this ticket almost all kinds of public transportation can be used within the Rhine-Main transportation association (RMV). ICE, IC, and EC trains are excluded.
If certain circumstances occur, Goethe University students can apply for refund at the hardship fund of the Studierendenwerk Frankfurt am Main. The entitlement to use the AStA semester ticket expires with the refund.
The hardship fund administration is led by the Studierendenwerk Frankfurt am Main on behalf of the Goethe University AStA. The hardship fund office will answer any questions you may have about the refund.
