Coronavirus: Measures and central information

Hybrid and with as little presence as possibleSummer semester at UDE

A hybrid semester with largely distant formats is running at UDE. The rule is: as little presence as possible - and only as much presence on site as absolutely necessary. The operation of facilities, libraries, refectories, counselling services or even childcare is governed by the applicable protection ordinances and the obligations and instructions for action that result from them for the university.

The university management agrees that in view of the current infection situation and the legal situation, no relaxation or opening perspective can be seen in the short term. Online teaching for students and home office for employees remain the rule.


The tightened regulations to contain infection in North Rhine-Westphalia still apply.
