For all members and guests of TU Darmstadt

Participation in courses offered during the winter semester 2021/22 requiring physical presence on site (lectures, exercises, seminars, practicals etc.) is only possible by providing negative proof based on the 3G principle (vaccinated, recovered, tested). Only up to 50% of the overall seating per room will be made available. Throughout the entire course, medical face masks must be worn. Lecturers may take off their medical face masks during their courses, provided they can keep sufficient distance to their audience.

Students who cannot participate in these courses in person (because they belong to groups at risk or because they are subject to international entry restrictions) will be offered equivalent digital alternatives which may take place at a different time or may be structured in a didactically different manner.

Having to wear medical face masks also applies to written and oral examinations.

For more information, please visit the webpages of More information on the Directorate II website.
