Campus licence for Citavi

The Technische Universität Berlin has concluded a campus licence agreement with Swiss Academic Software GmbH for the software "Citavi – Reference manager and Knowledge Organisation".

Employees and students of our university can use this licence for studying, teaching and research at work and on all personal computers.

The campus contract is currently valid until 30.11.2019.

Note on campus licence renewal

The Citavi licence is usually renewed by the TU Berlin every two years (see expiration date). After the start of a new licence period, the personal campus licence in Citavi also needs to be renewed. Proceed as if you were inserting the licence in Citavi for the first time. To do so, you simply log into your Citavi account and transfer the licence from there.

Continued use of Citavi after leaving the TU

After de-registration or after leaving as an employee, alumni can continue to use the licence as long as the current campus licence period runs.

If the campus licence is renewed, all alumni with their university e-mail address must apply for a new licence key and re-install it. From this point on, alumni will no longer be able to take advantage of Citavi Pro, but the Citavi project data will be preserved. You can use the free version or buy the Pro version with a 50% discount.
