Obvious gaps in the records in the 1940s result from the impacts and reactions of the Second World War, the relocation of the Pedagogical Academy to another location, and due to the reconstruction phase in the post-war period. The Ruhr College of Education, located in Dortmund, was merged with the University of Dortmund on April 01, 1980.

Information on the history of the institutions can be found in the chronicle TU Dortmund University - a journey through time.
