Study and work safely at TU Ilmenau

Update February 2, 2023

As of today, the new and presumably last Thuringian Corona Protection Ordinance has come into force, which only regulates simplifications compared to federal law - in particular the Infection Protection Act. The federal Corona Occupational Health and Safety Ordinance has come to an end. The pandemic is thus not yet over, but is fortunately nearing its end.

The university's infection protection concept, which has been in effect until now, is no longer necessary and will therefore be repealed with immediate effect.

However, protecting the health of our students and employees remains a priority: please therefore follow the behavioral recommendations and obligations of the state, especially if you have tested positive (home office as far as possible, wearing a qualified face mask, etc.).

Please show responsibility and continue to protect yourself and your fellow human beings!


Prof. Kai-Uwe Sattler | President of the TU Ilmenau
