Registration for TUMi events is very simple.

Events without a participation fee (e.g. campus tour in orientation weeks): You register online in the TUMi app.

Events with a particpation fee (e.g. excursion): You simply come to our office during office hours and pay for your participation.

How do I know how much an event costs? This will be mentioned in the event description in the TUMi app.


We only accept cash for payments.

As the number of participants in each event is limited, the “first come, first serve” principle applies. 

Often, places are left the week before an event. If you are very keen on attending the event, please drop by at our office the week before (ideally the Friday before an event on a weekend).

Participation in all TUMi events is voluntary. Legal liability provisions apply. Accident coverage through the Bayerische Landesunfallkasse is therefore not provided.

You may withdraw your confirmation of participation in an event until the last Monday before the event in question only. If you would like to withdraw at a later stage, please find somebody to replace you. Different registration rules may apply for events involving an overnight stay.

Reimbursement of your attendance fee in the event of illness will only be provided if you submit a doctor's certificate within two weeks.

As many events are subsidized by TUM, participation is limited to TUM students only.

TUMi reserves the right to use event photos for internal purposes (showcase, website, fliers, etc.). Please let us know if you have any objections.


Discover the culinary variety of the world during the TUMi Länderabend!

Every other Monday from 7 pm, you are invited to the TUMi Länderabend at KHG (Karlstraße 32, 80333 München). Every Länderabend is organized by students from a different country or region.

The Länderabend also serves as a meeting point for international and German students alike. 

Entry is free and registration is not required.
