Corona – Information on how to deal with the pandemic

Please note: Based on the new general conditions for planning the winter semester, this website is currently being updated. (July 29, 2021)

With our hygiene regulations and our own phased plan, we want to react appropriately to the development of the infection. Our primary goal is to protect the health of all University members as best we can and to make our contribution to contain the infection. We have compiled important information for you concerning study and teaching.

In order to protect students and employees or to contain corona infections, the following consequences and rules must be observed:

  • The University of Freiburg statute for managing the effects of the corona pandemic on studies and teaching (Corona Statute – in German) from April 17, 2020 (in the version dated February 26, 2021)
  • It is to be expected (dated June 23, 2021) that the current Corona Ordinance as well as the Corona regulation study operations from the Ministry for Science, Research and Art will be valid until June 30, 2021 and are expected to be extended.
  • The University’s phased plan expired on June 11, 2021, due to the current low 7-day incidence levels, and the regulations listed in this overview will apply for University operations under Corona conditions. The regulations are subject to no significant increase in incidence levels.
  • Further regulations can be found below under ‘Information on the summer semester 2021’.
  • Starting Wednesday, May 26, 2021, students and staff at the University of Freiburg may use the reading rooms and study spaces at the UB Monday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 12 am.m without having to pre-register for a specific time slot. Registration is provided on-site. More information.
