Here, the university management of the University of Stuttgart provides information about the current situation caused by the coronavirus in the form of a news ticker. Advice for students and staff regarding examinations, lectures, business trips, working hours and suggestions on how to deal with the virus can be found there.

Please check this page regularly for the latest information.

VIS(US) specific measures:

We do not allow anyone to use head-mounted displays (HMDs), for example, in the AR/VR labs, because they come with a high danger of virus transmission.

  • We close and lock the students' pools and lab spaces.
  • Any lab user studies that need physical presence of participants have to be postponed.
  • If the closed lab spaces and students' pools interfere with finishing your work in time (e.g. BSc or MSc theses), please contact the examiner so that you can apply for a deadline extension with the examination committee (Prüfungsausschuss).
