Semester overview



At the moment, masks are no longer mandatory at DIT, not even on meeting areas and traffic routes inside buildings.

As basic protection for all of us, the following continues to apply in consultation with the crisis team and the staff council:

  • Wearing masks (FFP2 mask, OP mask or also casual mask) is still recommended, as well as maintaining a minimum distance of 1.5 m.
  • Please continue to ventilate regularly.
  • Access is still prohibited if you have symptoms typical of a coronavirus infection or if you have been diagnosed with a coronavirus infection.

Should there be any changes due to the pandemic situation, we will of course inform you again as soon as possible.



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. 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.
