important information for your semester start

Welcome to DIT!

To help you settle in quickly on campus, we have summarized all the important first steps to starting your studies below:


  • Get to know your campus! The best way to find your way quickly to your lecture halls and the canteen is to use our campus maps. Or take a walk around our campus from the comfort of your own home on our 360 Grad Tour.
  • Setting up your personal university account is the first step towards arriving digitally at the university. Your university account gives you access to the university network and your student email address. Our IT introduction will help you with your first steps in IT: IT-introduction
  • As a rule, courses at DIT have a virtual course room on the university's own learning platform  iLearn. Here you can find, for example, course content and up-to-date information from your lecturers. You can log in to iLearn with your university account..
    How to find your way around the learning platform is explained here:  Video on how to log in to iLearn for the first time. You can also find help and tips on digital teaching in this  iLearn-course.
  • With your university account, you can also log in to the personalized website area my.th-deg.de. There you will have access to your individualized lecture schedule and the most important portals and news for your studies. Find out more about my.th-deg.de here: what is my.th-deg.de? 
  • Would you like to get involved in a group with motivated fellow students and make new contacts? Then find out more about our student clubs, music groups on campus and the student council (student convention).
  • Join us at the Freshers' Day, make contacts with your fellow students and find out more - so you have a great start with your studies

Freshers' days

We want to give our first-semester students the perfect start to their studies. That's why our introductory event called "Quietschietage" will take place again this year from 30 September to 1 October 2024 at the Deggendorf campus. We cordially invite all our first-semester students to this event!

Get to know DIT and your fellow students before you start your studies and attend study-related courses in advance. Our colorful programme guarantees you a perfect start to your studies with lots of fun.

More information about the programme and how to register will be announced here soon.

Freshers' Days and Veilchengassenfest 2023

At the start of the winter semester 2023/24 the so-called "Quietschietage" (Freshers' Days) took place for the first time for our first-semester students to give them the perfect start to their studies.

The colourful supporting programme, which included a tour of the campus, introductions to student clubs, table football and university cinema, gave students the opportunity to start their studies with lots of fun while getting to know fellow students and visiting courses relevant to their studies before they start.

The crowning finale of the Quietschietage 2023 was the Veilchengassenfest in the university mile of Deggendorf - with street food, exhibitions, live music and a great atmosphere.

The next Quietschietage will take place again at the start of the winter semester 2024/25.

Below you will find impressions of the Quietschietage and the Veilchengassenfest 2023 at Campus Deggendorf:
