Explanatory note

TU Darmstadt has a very extensive web presence of several hundred webpages. Most of these webpages were published before 23 September 2018. We have not yet managed to redesign our entire web presence in such a way to be fully accessible in accordance with the federal and state legislation on equal opportunities for persons with disabilities (BGG & LGG) due to the extent of modifications necessary. However, technical modifications are being carried out successively.
