Changes on Campus

You can help!

The university of Bremen has implemented a general ruling from the Public Order Office of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen. This regulation means that you are obliged to wear a mouth-nose covering (mask) in all university building – including the Glashalle Building.

Students and teaching staff are now also obliged to wear a mask – even when they are seated.

The wearing of a mask is also obligatory for staff in administration, the faculties, and deaneries when seated – if said staff work in a shared office. The ruling also applies to all meetings.

According to the corona ruling, the mouth-nose covering must be a “textile barrier”, thus plastic visors or similar items are not permitted.

Safety and Hygiene Standards at the University of Bremen

On November 2, 2020, the winter semester 2020/21 will be starting at the university with an increased number of face-to-face classes/events taking place. Thus, the number of people working and studying on campus will also increase. The safety standards that have been in place to date and which mainly focused on the needs of staff must now also be expanded to include students’ needs.

Alongside the specific hygiene concepts for classes, excursions, and the usage of learning spaces, the following safety and hygiene standards will add to the measures in place to reduce the risk of infection in all other situations for staff, students, and cooperation partners.

The new regulations in the document "General Safety and Hygiene Standards at the University of Bremen" are valid from the beginning of the preparatory classes in the winter semester 2020/21, thus from October 19, 2020.

Hygiene Concept for the Hybrid Teaching

The start of studies on campus is to be made possible with in-person formats under hygienic condi-tions adapted to the coronavirus pandemic. Hygiene rules apply, which may have to be adapted con-tinuously.

Admission to the university buildings is only permitted for study or professional purposes and will be open to authorized employees and students for study purposes from 11.2.2020.
