Locker clearance

We are getting new locks for our lockers!

For safety and hygiene checks as well as repair of the locks, the lockers must be completely empty by 12 August 2022. After this date, the locks will be replaced. Any contents of the lockers will be stored with the caretakers and can be collected until 31.10.2022.

Plans for the winterterm 2021/22

In addition to lectures, tutorials and lab courses in particular are of central importance for successful physics studies. While the latter give students the opportunity to conduct their own experiments, tutorials in particular open up discourse and exchange among students to work on tasks together or to deepen the experiments and concepts shown in lectures.
Aware of this important building block of successful physics studies, the Faculty of Physics in Göttingen has endeavoured since the beginning of the pandemic to offer our students - and especially the first semester - the highest possible degree of attendance and to make the best possible use of the available room capacities in compliance with all valid hygiene regulations.
