Important regulations and information

The TU Darmstadt will offer more on-site courses for students in the winter semester 2021/22. All students are to be given the opportunity to participate in courses on site. These events must of course take into account the framework of the Corona regulations then in force.

The on-site courses are based on the currently applicable hygiene regulations, such as minimum distance between marked seating of 1.5 m (4-5 steps), obligatory medical face masks, registration of participants via TU Check-in.

All Students who cannot participate in these courses on-site (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.
