Corona – Information on how to deal with the pandemic

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 October 14, 2020)
  • It is to be expected (dated March 11, 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 March 28, 2021 and are expected to be extended.
  • 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 as of November 02, 2020. All classroom-based teaching will be interrupted. Due to the legally binding requirements of the state’s Corona ordinances, it is not currently possible to change to Stage 4, despite the declining incidence levels.
  • Further regulations can be found below under ‘Information on the winter semester 2020/2021’.
  • Access to the reading rooms in the University Library has once again been restricted for University members starting March 10, 2021. University members can still make use of the scan service, order media online and pick them up from the University Library. It is possible to borrow and return items at the library. More information.
