The hygiene concept stipulates, among other things, that the test subjects must wear a covering over the nose and mouth (mask, scarf, or cloth) when entering and exiting the lecture hall. This also applies in situations where the required minimum distance cannot be maintained, such as during discussions with the examiners. Therefore, please make sure to bring an appropriate covering for your nose and mouth with you on the day of the examination.

We keep you updated on further information.

Computer Science building

The computer science building is actually off-limits for all students.

Yet we can't be sure, if the building can be re-opened in the summer term. We strongly recommend to make plans how you can study outside the university and to organize yourself in virtual study groups. Please use ILIAS for that purpose.


The pools in the computer science building are closed until further notice.

For Bachelor and Master theses, with a deadline later than April 19th, and final theses that have to be registered by 3rd May, the deadlines will be extended by 7 weeks. There is no need to make an application for that.

The University Library (UB) is offering a restricted lending service at the two library locations Stadtmitte and Vaihingen. It is not yet possible to stay for studying and working. The institute libraries will remain closed.
