Studies and Teaching

  • 21.12.2021: The Corona Regulations for Studies and Examinations at TU Dortmund University were adopted on 21.12.2021. Here you can find a general overview of the regulations and measures taken by the TU Dortmund University.

  • 10.12.2021: On the basis of the Corona Epidemic University Ordinance of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia of 01.12.2021 and the continuing tense Corona situation, the Dean of Studies of the Faculty, in order to create legal and planning security, has determined the following for the examinations of the winter semester 2021/22 in agreement with the Chairman of the Examination Committee. This applies to both the main date and the subsequent date: Examinations previously scheduled as written will be conducted digitally in alternative formats. The alternative digital examination formats will be communicated promptly on the website of the Examination  Office. The aim of the current planning is in any case to maintain the examination dates already set; where this is not possible, a separate notice will be given. Further information will be announced as soon as it is available.

  • 27.09.2021: The Rectorate has published comprehensive information on in-person and digital courses in the winter semester 2021/22 incl. mask requirement and the associated 3G rules. Further information.

  • 27.09.2021: The (internal) rescheduling deadlines for the Master's program in Business Administration and Economics have been lifted again for the winter semester 2021/22 (exception: students in teacher training study programs who want to start their practical semester).

  • 27.09.2021: The department is planning - against the background of current regulations and after consultation with the Rectorate - a hybrid semester with as many of the courses being in-person as possible. Further information.

  • 07/19/2021: The Rectorate has specified the regulation on bonus attempts for failed exams in the summer semester 2021:

    "Due to teaching constraints, bonus attempts for exams have been granted in the winter semester 2020/21 and summer semester 2020: Exams that are taken and not passed are considered not taken. Each of these free attempts is valid once in each examination procedure in terms of a further attempt (bonus attempt). If the examination taken in the bonus attempt was not passed, there is no further bonus attempt for the same examination.

    This rule will be continued in the summer semester 2021. For written exams (both digital and face-to-face), there will also be an additional bonus attempt in the summer semester 2021.

    Bonus attempts do not apply to theses and to exams that were failed or graded as insufficient due to attempted cheating. Moreover, they can only be claimed if the examination was actually taken. The examination board responsible decides on a bonus attempt for other forms of examinations - for example, planning drafts, term papers, or presentations."

  • 03.05.2021: In order to allow for better planning for all involved parties, the Deans' Office has decided that the department's digital teaching offer will be continued after Pentecost.  There will be no in-person classroom courses for the rest of the lecture period.

  • 19.04.2021: As in the summer semester 2020 and winter semester 2020/21, the (internal) re-enrollment deadlines for the Master's program in Business Administration and Economics have been lifted for the summer semester 2021 (exception: students in teacher training study programs who want to start their practical semester).

  • 15.04.2021: Against the background of current regulations and the current pandemic situation, the department plans to conduct the examinations of the summer semester in an alternative "online" format, similar to those of the winter semester. The Corona Epidemic University Ordinance continues to permit deviations from the forms of examinations set forth in the examination regulations until at least the end of this summer semester. The current decision of the Deans' Office in favor of online examinations creates planning security for students and examiners.

  • 05.03.2021: The department is planning - against the background of current regulations and after consultation with the rectorate - a hybrid semester with a digital teaching offer until Pentecost and a possible continuation in presence after this date.

  • 15.02.2021: The Rectorate has updated the "Co­ro­na Ordnung für den Studien- und Prü­fungs­be­trieb an der Technischen Uni­ver­si­tät Dort­mund" (as of 22.12.2020, in German). Of particular importance:

    1. The individualized standard period of study is increased by one semester for students enrolled in a degree program at the Technical University of Dortmund in the summer semester 2020 or in the winter semester 2020 / 2021.

      More precisely: for students enrolled in a Bachelor's or Master's degree program in Business Administration and Economics in the summer semester 2020 and winter semester 2020/21, the standard period of study will increase to eight and six semesters, respectively. Please note: This does not affect the number of semesters shown on graduation documents and is primarily relevant for Bafög recipients, scholarships and student loans, etc. Binding information on this should be obtained from the respective institutions.

    2. Examinations taken and not passed in the summer semester 2020 or winter semester 2020/21 are considered as not taken. Each of these free attempts counts once in each examination procedure in terms of a further attempt (bonus examination)."

      More precisely: There is one bonus attempt per subject. Anyone who has already benefited from this bonus in the summer semester 2020, will not receive a bonus attempt in the winter semester 2020/2021.  This includes the examinations of the winter semester 2019/20 second exam phase.

      Examinations in the second examination phase that take place after 31.03.2021 are also considered to belong to the winter semester 2020/21.

      The regulation on bonus attempts does not apply to examinations that have been assessed as "failed" or "insufficient/ 5.0" due to an attempted cheating. This means that in the case of an attempt to cheat, a regular exam attempt would be used up and no bonus attempt can be used for said exam anymore.

    3. Deregistration from an examination is governed by the regulations of the respective examination regulations.

      More precisely: contrary to the handling in the summer semester 2020, deregistrations for exams that have not been taken must be made in a timely manner.

  • The Deans' Office of the Department of Business and Economics has made the decision not to conduct any in-person examinations in the main exam phase (and probably also in the second exam phase) of this winter semester. Alternative formats are currently being developed by the examiners and will be communicated shortly. The aim of the current planning is to maintain the already fixed examination dates; where this is not possible, a separate notice will be given.

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund University is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is "Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen" (closer to Campus Süd), and from B 1 / A 40 "Dort­mund-Dorstfeld" (closer to Campus Nord). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from Campus Nord to Campus Süd by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at Campus Nord and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.


TU Dort­mund University has its own train station ("Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät"). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dort­mund main station ("Dort­mund Hauptbahnhof") and Düsseldorf main station via the "Düsseldorf Airport Train Station" (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 20 or 30 minutes). The uni­ver­si­ty is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg.

You can also take the bus or subway train from Dort­mund city to the uni­ver­si­ty: From Dort­mund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station "Stadtgarten", usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At "Stadtgarten" you switch trains and get on line U42 towards "Hombruch". Look out for the Station "An der Palmweide". From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dort­mund University leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dort­mund main station to the stop "Dort­mund Kampstraße". From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop "Dort­mund Wittener Straße". Switch to bus line 447 and get off at "Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S".

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on Campus Nord. One ("Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S") is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the "Technologiepark" and (via Campus Süd) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at Campus Nord and offers a direct connection to Campus Süd every five minutes.


The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.


The departments of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent "Technologiepark".
