Corona – Information on how to deal with the pandemic

The rapid increase in the number of corona infections fills us with great concern. With our hygiene regulations and 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
  • It is to be expected (as of November 02, 2020) that the current Corona Ordinance will apply until January 30, 2021 (§§1a and 15 clause 2 until November 30, 2020) and is expected to be extended. The latest version of the Corona Ordinance study operations and the arts from the MWK dated September 16, 2020 became effective on November 2.
  • We all had hoped to offer classroom teaching, possibly in hybrid formats, at least for the first few weeks, at least for our first and second semester students in the 2020/21 winter semester. Due to the rapid increase in the number of coronavirus infections, the Rectorate felt compelled to declare level 5 in its own multi-level plan. All classroom-based teaching will be interrupted.
  • Further regulations can be found below under ‘Information on the winter semester 2020/2021’.
  • Students and employees of the University of Freiburg have the possibility to borrow and return books at the UB from April 23rd, 2020. Since 20 May limited access to the reading rooms at the University Library has once again been possible for members of the university.
