Emergency operation mode & building closure

Information on Emergency Operation Mode and Building Closures

FAQs (status on 30.03.21)

In order to reduce the number of Covid-19 infections, it is necessary to restrict human contact. One of the measures is the closure of the universities in the state of Bremen and the possibility to work from home. This decision was made by the senator for science in agreement with the public universities in the state of Bremen.

The building closures with entry controls will continue until April 18, 2021.

The entryways to the university buildings are open. Entry is supervised by security staff. Staff with access authorization may enter and students must present their student ID, a confirmation of booking for a learning space, or their enrollment/application number. Staff should contact the administration of their working area regarding access authorization. They have been writing the access lists since the beginning of June 2020.
The emergency exits function as usual and are not affected by the closures.

In order to provide safe and quick access to the buildings when several people are on campus, it is necessary to reorganize the entry possibilities in some buildings. Relevant signs will be hung on doors as quickly as possible. 

Here are the entryways for university building. The entryways and exits of several buildings will now be separated. This can be seen in the following table.

Please note that the doors are currently only open until 6 p.m. With regard to buildings where it is possible to exit after 6 p.m. due to the technical infrastructure, this will still remain possible.

The university post office distributes the post that is delivered to the central office as usual.

Packages will be accepted by the security staff at each building. However, it is not possible that the security staff inform your when a package has arrived. They are also not liable for your package in any manner.

The central administration is doing its best and is attempting to deal with all important administrative issues despite the restrictions.

Several main IT systems cannot be reached when working from home. Thus, many areas of central administration are working in two teams: One team is on site and is working on the issues that cannot be completed from home due to the technical restrictions. The second team is working from home. The central administration is aiming to reduce the infection risk so that continual work is ensured.

This means that each area must prioritize tasks.

In order support the two-teams system, please pose any questions via email.

We ask for your understanding that personal office hours are currently not taking place.
