Information for students

Safety and security measures 

  • All courses, especially VO, VU, SE and UE, must be converted to a Distance Learning Format. The Distance Learning Team will either provide support for the conversion to a suitable online concept or the course must be postponed to a later date.
  • Only those laboratory practice/internship operations (LU, PR) which were started with an approved occupational safety measure concept in the winter semester 2020 can continue under these conditions. The same applies to dissertations, diploma, master and bachelor theses for which attendance in the laboratory is required.
  • We have set up a "digital letterbox" for students on the subject of studybility and distance learning: https://www.tuwien.at/en/studies/teaching-at-tu-wien/strategic-education-development-center/letterbox/. Students should contact us (also anonymously) if they have difficulties with Distance Learning or examinations.
  • Only those study rooms for which there is a safety concept approved by occupational safety can be used between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., if necessary. Compliance with the safety measures is checked by the Security Service of TU Wien. This also applies to the learning rooms in the library.
  • Excursions may not be made until further notice.
  • Examinations must be converted to an online format.
