Please note when handing in your research assignment:

As the offices of the Institute of History are not continuously staffed, it is not always possible to hand in the research assignment in person at the Institute. Please use the FB02 mailbox in building S3|13 in front of the caretaker's office on the mezzanine floor or the mailbox in the Institute of History, building S3|12, 4th floor in front of room 405. Alternatively, we advise you to use the letter post or hand in your term papers personally at the main gate of the old main building S1|03, Hochschulstr. 1 (in a sealed and correctly addressed envelope).

Please point out to the staff at the gate that it is a research assignment. The time and date of receipt will be noted and stamped on the envelope and the paper will be forwarded accordingly. Thank you very much.
