Practice formats in the Art & Design department will continue to be held in compliance with hygiene measures. You can find the updated hygiene measures below. Our campus, including the library and cafeteria, will remain open for students from Monday to Friday from 8am to 7pm. (Library opening times: 10am – 4pm, cafeteria opening time: 8am – 4pm)

    In order to avoid unnecessary waiting times in the services (Examination Office, International Office, Career Centre, etc.) and group formations on campus in the current situation, please make an appointment in advance by e-mail or telephone.

    When visiting the campus, please adhere to the present hygiene measures and the general AHA rules for your own protection and the protection of your fellow human beings.

    If you feel unwell, have the typical symptoms of corona, or if you are entering Germany from a foreign risk area and have not fulfilled the 14-day quarantine, you are not permitted to enter the campus. In this case, we will support you via the online campus with all the necessary information about your studies and provide you with digital assistance as usual. Many thanks for your cooperation!

    For all those who cannot come to the campus for health reasons and for all those who have not yet been able to enter Germany, teaching is completely live and digital. The UE thus enables further study without any loss of time. For this purpose, we have formulated a so-called UE Study Guarantee for our students.

     

    Stay healthy,

    Your Rectorate
