The security refurbishment of the TU Wien archives is scheduled to begin on February 1, 2023 and to be completed by the end of December 2023.

During this period, no regular archive operation is possible. Until probably mid-May, requests can still be answered. However, please expect longer waiting times, as our access to the archive depot will also be restricted. From June at the latest, the depot will be directly affected by the work and access will probably no longer be possible until the end of the year. 

We hope that the construction work will be completed by the beginning of 2024.




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 (
