Important Information for your Semester Start

Freshers' Day

On your first day on campus, we invite you to our Freshers' Day. The programme is your perfect start to your studies. We provide you with all the important information and contacts so that you can make the most of your studies. We are currently preparing for you at all study locations (Deggendorf, Cham and Pfarrkirchen). In Deggendorf, for example, there will be numerous information stands outside. Please check back here shortly before the semester starts. Especially in regards to the regulations concerning Corona. We are constantly updating the page.

Semester overview



DIT plans to hold the winter semester 2021/2022 largely in attendance.  Since Deggendorf, Pfarrkirchen and Cham currently have a 7-day incidence of over 35, the 3G rule (vaccinated, recovered or tested) is a required for people attending events. However, if the number of infections increases, it is possible that the Corona measures will have to be adjusted again. We hope that the semester can take place in attendance as planned.

If you are unable to come to campus for valid reasons (health restrictions, entry requirements, etc.), we will still make sure you can participate in all lectures and seminars.

Please note the current regulations on campus and inform yourself about possible changes on the page: Current information for the winter semester 2021/22.

If you experience symptoms typical of Corona, please do not enter the campus or leave the campus immediately until the suspicion has been clarified by a doctor. Please also observe the university's hygiene concept.



There is currently a general obligation to wear masks in the university buildings. The mask obligation does not apply to fixed sitting, standing or work places, as long as a minimum distance of 1.5 m to other persons is reliably maintained. Students and lecturers may therefore also remove their medical face masks during lectures if the minimum distance is maintained. Wearing a medical face mask is sufficient. In the open air, students and employees are no longer required to wear masks.

Contact details are collected via the darfichrein app.

Please note the regulations currently in force on campus and find out about possible changes on the page: Current information for the winter semester 2021/22



We recommend moving close to the campus. New students in particular should spend their semester close to campus in order to benefit from the local infrastructure and the numerous events for students (as far as the pandemic situation allows). In addition, you can make contacts better on campus and get to know the university.



The DIT communication guide provides you with general communication guidelines. Whether it's a personal conversation, a phone call, WhatsApp advice or virtual events - the guide covers all areas. You are perfectly prepared with the guide to communicate successfully on campus, at work or with strangers.
