Online Fair: Institutions and initiatives of the RWU introduce themselves
The everyday life of our university is shaped by many people. At the online fair, the RWU institutions, such as our university management, the central student advisory service or the Seezeit student union, present themselves.
RWU thrives on the participation of its students. In order to help shaping the university, a large number of student initiatives have been founded. Students who get involved in the university have better career opportunities and the chance to think outside the box. Studies conducted by the state of Baden-Württemberg have also shown that students who are engaged at the university are more likely to successfully complete their studies.
From October 12th onwards, you will find the performances, the program of question times and further information here (register with your RWU account).

Dealing with Corona at the RWU
Corona will play a major role in the winter semester 2020/21. To help students keep track, RWU offers information on the following pages:
- FAQ Corona: Here you will find all the important current regulations and information about the university. From compulsory masks in the university buildings to financial aids, the most important questions are answered here.
- Corona-News: Here you can read current information from the rectorate.
Changes to existing regulations and news are also communicated to students via e-mail. Checking the university mail regularly is important, not only when it comes to Corona.
RWU is also starting this semester in Corona mode. That means online teaching and mail contact instead of lecture halls, labs and visits to the office. Nevertheless, our campus tour video will give you an impression of your RWU.
