    Student Union Fee
    The contribution to the Studierendenwerk Stuttgart is a solidarity contribution that each student has to pay for one semester when registering with the University. This also applies if you do not want to or cannot use the services offered by the Studierendenwerk yourself (e.g. during a semester abroad or on vacation). You can find more information on the right in the information sheet of the Studierendenwerk (DOWNLOAD). The amount and composition of the student union fee can be found in the actual applicable fee regulations of the Studierendenwerk Stuttgart (see DOWNLOAD).
