In order to carry out their duties, the student body at the University of Konstanz collects 10 Euro per semester in accordance to their own fee regulations from all enrolled (doctoral) students.
This fee also applies to you if you are on a leave of absence or away during an internship or a semester abroad (§ 1 Beitragsordnung der Verfassten Studierendenschaft (student body schedule of fees).
The student body collects the fee irrespective of your actual use of its services (§ 2 Beitragsordnung).
The university administration collects these fees at no charge as part of the enrolment or re-registration processes. They are due without the need for a notification of fees. They are then transferred to the student body (§ 3 Beitragsordnung)
