Important regulations and information

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.

The 3G principle calls for negative proof documenting protection given by complete vaccination or recovery or a negative coronavirus testing result. A PCR test may be no older than 48 hours, an antigen test no older than 24 hours. The 3G rule applies at TU Darmstadt in the following situations:

  • to attend courses in person on site;
  • to access the University and State Library;
  • to participate in events such as conferences, project meetings, cooperation events or conventions;

For indoor sports courses, the 2G plus rule applies, 2G applies outdoors.

Information on the applicable test strategy for students at the TU Darmstadt can be found on the following website.

In the hybrid winter semester, courses in attendance and in digital form are often relatively close together in terms of time, so that students need a workplace on campus to participate in the digital course. For this purpose, they are allowed to use free central rooms on the TU campus – these can now be located via the new “TU Raum-Check” application.

The application can be accessed via the browser after input of the TU-ID:
