The security refurbishment of the TU Wien archives has been running since February 1, 2023 and should be completed by the end of December 2023.

The archive has been closed to external users since April 3, 2023. In the meantime we have moved - you will find us in our alternative quarters at Karlsplatz 13, staircase 6, 1st floor, rooms AF 0129 and AF 0133. Personal use of archive material will probably not be possible until the end of the year. There may be longer waiting times to answer written or telephone enquiries, as our access to the archive depot is also very limited.

We hope that the construction work will be completed by the beginning of 2024. Regular user services will be possible again after that.




The Archive safeguards, interprets and controls access to the administrative and academic legacy of TU Wien and its precursor institutions since its foundation in 1815, in written, pictorial, audiovisual and digital form. This includes responsibility for:      

  • Following and implementing developments/legal framework
  • Research
  • Public relations
  • Independent activities
  • Providing services internally and externally
  • Caring for and making use of archived material

The Archive is NOT allowed to issue confirmation of studies.
If you require such a service, please contact the Study Department (
