Tickets for students

For full-time students we offer reduced-price monthly season tickets as well as the supersaver all-year season ticket.

Monthly season tickets for students are valid for the calendar month printed on them from 0.00 on the first of the month till close of services on the last day of the month. Close of services is 6 am the following morning.

The SemesterTicket authorizes you to travel as often as you like over fare rings A-E during the semester given on the ticket. You can extend the area of validity of your ticket by buying an appropriate season ticket in one of our service centres. Please present your existing SemesterTicket when you do this.

Our tip: The SemesterTicket from Hamburg universities allows you to take along up to 3 children aged 6-14 free of charge. Children under 6 travel free of charge on the HVV.

Tickets for students who do not have a SemesterTicket

When you buy a ticket for a student, you will need to submit a filled out entitlement form. This must be validated by your university or college for students.

If your university is on our list of verified institutes of further education, you can get the entitlement form at our service centres or via our Infoline on 040/19 449.

It is so easy – just a few steps to get your monthly season ticket

Personal passes for students are only issued via our service centres. Just bring along a passport photo which shows you to advantage and your entitlement form. The entitlement form for the reduced-price ticket must always be carried together with the ticket.
