Additional to free statutory accident insurance, Studierendenwerk Thüringen (STW) also offers students leisure-time accident insurance as well as limited third-party insurance. These policies are financed through the semester fee. An individual case assessment will take place with every claim. The insurance provider will, after this assessment, decide if the damaged claimed are covered.
Attention, important notice regarding limited liability insurance:
According to the decision of the board of directors of the Studierendenwerk Thüringen and in agreement with the Thuringian universities, the limited liability insurance of the Studierendenwerk Thüringen for the students of eight Thuringian universities (Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena, University Erfurt, Technical University Ilmenau, Bauhaus-University Weimar, University of Music Franz Liszt Weimar, University of Applied Sciences Erfurt, University of Applied Sciences Schmalkalden and Duale Hochschule Gera-Eisenach) ends on 30.06.2019 at 12 noon. The students of the Ernst-Abbbe-Hochschule Jena and the Hochschule Nordhausen are excluded from this.
They continue to be insured. For the students of the eight universities for which the insurance ends, the following applies: Damages resulting from participation in teaching and research before 30.06.2019 at 12 noon and reported by 05.07.2019 to the information centres of the Studierendenwerk Thüringen can still be settled via the limited liability insurance. Damages that occur at a later date will no longer be covered by the liability insurance of the Studierendenwerk Thüringen. In the case of damage events that occur before the end of 30.06.2019 12 noon but are not reported by 05.07.2019, the insurance company may refuse to settle the claims.
