The mathematics building at TU Berlin will be completely closed

The mathematics building of the Technical University (TU) Berlin at Ernst-Reuter-Platz will be closed. I informed the university early Thursday evening on Twitter About the short-term closing of the same evening. Thus, the background is water damage and the associated severely poor power supply.

The complete lockdown affects teaching, research and administration. As far as possible, the courses will be transferred at short notice,” the university announced on its website. The building will thus be inaccessible with regular closings on Thursdays from 10 p.m. According to TU information, there are a total of about 2,700 seats in seminar halls and lecture halls In the building at Straße des 17. Juni.

As announced by the university, “severe water damage was intentionally caused” in mid-April. Until then, parts of the building had to be closed. To date, the extent of the damage has not been fully understood. Other defects were discovered during inspections on Wednesday.

The reason for the closure of the entire building is because the east wing on floors from the basement to the eighth floor will be disconnected from the power supply. This also affects the fire monitoring system as well as safety and outdoor lighting, according to the university. “This means that the safe use of the entire building is no longer possible.”
