am i a member?


When you enroll for the first time, it is very possible that you do not yet know what the VSUZH is and does. When you enrolled for a degree program, you had the option of making three voluntary contributions:

  • Foundation "Loan Fund of the Student Body" with CHF 7

  • Foundation "Solidarity Fund for Foreign Students in Zurich with CHF 5

  • Membership fee of the Association of Students of the University of Zurich (VSUZH) with CHF 14


So you may not be sure whether you are a member of the VSUZH or not. But it is very easy to check, because your membership for the current semester is always visible on your validated student ID. So if the VSUZH symbol is missing on your ID, you should make up for your membership as soon as possible.  


You can change your membership status in the student portal (see GIF):


  Step 1: Log in to the student portal
  Step 2: Go to "My enrollment and personal data"
  Step 3: Click on "Contributions and memberships
