Self-tests for students
For the beginning exam period, all TUM students can get up to five self-tests for free on a one-time basis from 14.07.2021. They can be picked up at the TUMshop on the main campus or at the specially set up pick-up points in Garching or Freising:
- Pick-up point in Munich (TUMshop): http://portal.mytum.de/displayRoomMap?0143@0501
- Pick-up point in Freising (Raum 034, ZHG): http://portal.mytum.de/displayRoomMap?034@4214
- Pick-up point in Garching (Raum 003, Exzellenzzentrum): http://portal.mytum.de/displayRoomMap?003@5530
The pick-up points are open from Monday to Friday, from 10:00 to 14:00. In Garching, the tests are available via a continuously accessible vending machine.
Students only need to show their Student Card to pick up the tests. Self-testing is done without supervision, ideally at home before going to the exam, and is voluntary - but it is an important component in the fight against the pandemic. TUM therefore asks all students taking on-campus exams to take advantage of the offer. More information on how to pick up the self-tests can be found at https://www.tum.de/en/about-tum/news/coronavirus/corona-teaching-exams/.
Obligation to wear masks during examinations
At the seat in the examination room there is no obligation to wear FFP2 masks, however, students have to at least wear a medical mask. Otherwise, the obligation to wear an FFP2 mask still applies in all rooms and buildings of the TUM - also on the way to the individual seat.
