Information on the Corona pandemic

Current situation

(Updated on October 30, 2020)

Since mid-March 2020 at the latest, the world has changed, the Corona pandemic has a firm grip on us and we all have to learn to deal with the changed situation. As in many other universities, almost all lectures at the HFT Stuttgart were held online in the past summer semester, and the examinations were successfully held in presence according to a strict hygiene concept.

At the beginning of the winter semester, we were able to welcome the freshmen in attendance at the university in small groups, and some lectures were also held in attendance. Starting in November 2020, teaching will be switched back to online teaching. Classroom teaching is only possible in exceptional cases. 

The focus of the measures in place at the HFT Stuttgart is the protection of the health of all members and relatives of the university. However, it is also the aim of the university to ensure that courses can be offered and examinations can take place. 

In order to reduce the danger of infection by the corona virus, numerous measures have been taken at the HFT Stuttgart, about which we would like to inform you here. Processes and dates must always be adapted to the current situation. Therefore please inform yourself regularly in Moodle and here on the website of the HFT Stuttgart about the current status.

We wish all university members to get through this difficult time well and stay healthy

It is not allowed to log in only for the first lecture and log out after the last lecture. Every room change requires a login/logout.
