Der AStA der Hochschule Darmstadt erfand in 2002 das Theaterticket in Kooperation mit dem Staatstheater Darmstadt und diente bundesweit als Modell für ähnliche Kooperationen. Seitdem ist es um weitere Theater in Darmstadt ergänzt worden. Und mittlerweile kann mit dem Studienausweis auch das Landesmuseum Darmstadt kostenfrei und unbegrenzt besucht werden!
Initiated by a creative proposal from the State Theater Darmstadt, in spring 2002, the AStA (Student Union) developed a contract draft for a new kind of cultural ticket: For a modest flat fee, approximately 16,500 students of Hochschule Darmstadt are allowed to attend performances at the State Theater Darmstadt free of charge and without limitations.
The offer includes not only opera and drama but also dance theater, recitals, literary readings, and performances at the workshop stage. Typically, premieres, guest performances, special events, and children's shows are excluded.
In February 2019, three independent theaters from Darmstadt joined the program: Theater im Moller-Haus, HoffART-Theater, and Theater im Pädagog.
And since September 2021, students of h_da also have free admission to the Hesse State Museum Darmstadt.
What all these offers have in common is that the student ID serves as the ticket for free access to the theaters or the museum!
For the future, the CampusCard is intended to be expanded into even more of a cultural ticket for h_da students, covering additional museums and other cultural institutions.
