Energy-saving measures and Corona in the winter semester 2022/23

Due to the current situation, TUM is also being called upon to be more conscious in its use of energy. However, it will not restrict its operations - there are no plans to go back to purely online teaching or to restrict studies in any other way through large-scale closures of buildings or infrastructure on campus. The university will not compromise on health protection either; ventilation systems, for example, will continue to operate without restriction. However, there will be slightly less heating. TUM asks all its students, lecturers and staff to help save energy on campus in their everyday lives. Current information and details on the measures as well as tips for saving energy can be found at www.tum.de/studium
