All students* who are matriculated at the ETH Zurich, the University of Zurich or one of the Zurich universities of applied sciences (ZFH) are members of the ASVZ. When a student card is validated, the ASVZ logo is automatically printed onto it next to the validity date. Employees and alumni (graduates) of the same universities are also eligible to be members.

Below you will find the detailed conditions for the various categories of membership eligibility.

The ASVZ is not open to the general public, so anyone who is not affiliated with one of the participating universities cannot purchase a membership.
