General information on the current situation

The coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) continues to affect the situation at the university. Unfortunately, the measures undertaken so far by the university and the public authorities  have not yet had the effect of significantly slowing down the spread of the coronavirus. Therefore, the rectorate of the University decided that for the remainder of the winter semester 2020/21 (until 31 March 2021):

  • teaching should – whenever possible – only be carried out virtually. This does not include examinations and internships that require physical presence,
  • work in research and administration should continue. If possible, this should be carried out from home. Leisure activities such as university sports, music rehearsals, or theatre are not possible,
  • the lending operations of libraries should continue. Workstations are no longer available for the time being.

Please note that for the time of the nationwide shutdown face-to-face teaching and face-to-face examinations are de facto completely prohibited. For the time being, these measures are limited until 31 January 2021. (More Information can be found here.)
