The ESNcard is a promotional offer for all exchange students who plan to enjoy their time abroad to their fullest. More information can be found on .





Why you should get it: The ESNcard gives you access to multiple discounts on for a whole year!

We have partnerships with various organisations, including Hostelling International, Logitech and Ryanair* (*conditions apply).

Also, while you’re in Hamburg ESNcard holders get a discount for almost all our events. If you plan to attend our excursion to Flensburg, the Ratsherrn Brewery or our trip to Heidepark you should definitely consider it.


Who can get it:

  • ERASMUS+ students & trainees  & ERASMUS (MUNDUS) degree students

  • International incoming students or trainees on a mobility program, other than Erasmus+

  • International undergraduate or postgraduate full degree students

  • EVS participants

  • ESNers: either active on the Local, National or International Level. They are all members of a section

This applies to everyone who does their exchange in Hamburg and the surrounding area e.g. if you are enrolled in Barcelona and do your exchange in Kiel you can purchase a card from ESN Hamburg. If you do your exchange somewhere else in Germany, please first talk to your closest ESN section.

For students from Hamburg, Kiel, Flensburg, Bremen,... who want to buy a card and are going on their exchange next semester please first contact your receiving section to get approval. e..g if you are from Hamburg and plan an exchange semester in Barcelona you should contact the ESN section of Barcelona which will be resposible for you. You can find your receiving ESN section on the offical ESN webside.

If there is no ESN section in your receiving institution/city you can purchase an ESNcard from us without needing approval.

The ESNcard is internationally recognized by ESN, so students who want to purchase an ESNcard from their home section can do so - we will accept every valid ESNcard at each of our events.

How to get it: If you are eligible for an ESNcard you can buy it for 10 € and you can get it

1) at one of our events starting March/April for the summer term and October for the winter term
2) at the TUHH AStA Office (address on bottom of page) during their opening times Mo, Tu, Th & Fr 9-11 am (AStA stands for general student association, it is not just ESN)


Be advised: We do not ship ESNcards via letter (no exceptions). 

However, we need you to confirm your status as an exchange student at your university. A (digital) copy of your learning agreement (LA) or any other official document that proves your mobility status is sufficient. Also, you need to be physically present for the purchase.

Your information will not be passed onto third parties and only be used for authentication within the ESN organisation.

Don't forget to bring a copy of your LA (or similar document).

If there are any more questions don't hesitate to contact us!
