Refund for Student Union Fee in case of double burden

If you wish to be reimbursed for your “ÖH-Beitrag” (Student Union contribution fee), then please fill in the required form that you can find by following the link below:

Austrian Student Union Refund Österreichische Hochschülerschaft - Refundierung

Student Union Insurance (ÖH Versicherung)

By paying the Student Union fee you will be registered at your university as an ordinary member of the student union. You are then insured for the entire current semester. However, if you do not pay the SU fee during any given semester, then you will be insured only until the end of the enrolment grace period of the following semester.

Important Advice:

Even though the Student Union is qua legal person the policyholder, you are insured as a natural person. For this reason you must independently ask for an insurance benefit where applicable and submit your notification of claim in case of damage. In case of damage the Student Union will make every effort to facilitate a smooth handling of your case and will be available to discuss any problems and complaints occurring during the process.
