Welcome Office

The Welcome Office at GSI/FAIR is the central point of contact for associated guests and users on campus.

On Monday April 26th we moved to our new premises BR1.1.144 (former post office).

Curfew in Hesse

Due to the high Corona infection rate, there is a curfew in Darmstadt (and surroundings) between 22.00-05:00 since April 24th. This will last until the number of new Corona infections is below 100 per 100.000 inhabitants for more than 5 consecutive days.
If GSI / FAIR employees or guests need to travel during those hours because of beamtime or night shift etc. they need a confirmation letter. Employees can get this confirmation from the Personnel Department. The Welcome Office will issue the confirmations for guest with a valid Guest Agreement.
Please write an email to welcome-office(at)gsi.de (cc Local Contact Person) stating the full name of the guest and the period  the confirmation is needed for.
