Information on the Corona Pandemic

  • We keep you up-to-date!

    Current information on life, studies, and work at the University of Bremen during the corona pandemic.

The University of Bremen is working with the Level Plan for Teaching, which is based on the incidence rate in Bremen city and the situation on campus. The University of Bremen crisis team determines and decides which level of the Level Plan for Teaching applies on campus.

At the moment, we are on level 0 of the Level Plan for Teaching.

No 3G access controls will be carried out at buildings. Social distancing rules no longer apply and all buildings are freely accessible. There is no longer be a requirement to wear a mask in university buildings. Lectures, seminars, practical sessions, and tutorials can take place in person once more and without any restrictions. Student working spaces can also be booked again as usual.

To prevent the spread of the virus at the university, the University Executive Board urges you to wear a FFP2 mask in all indoor spaces where you are not alone and in situations where many people are gathered in a confined space. Unlike medical masks, FFP2 masks protect wearers well from a COVID-19 infection.

The University Executive Board asks you again to get vaccinated if you are not yet fully vaccinated. Vaccination is, and will continue to be, the best protection against a severe course of disease in the event of a corona infection. The booster vaccination makes a significant difference in both infection protection and disease progression.
