Information on teaching in the winter semester 2021/22 - as of November 24, 2021

  • As a university, we continue to maintain a high level of attendance - while focusing on the health of all of us. The university is monitoring the Corona situation very closely. In light of rising incidence rates as well as hospitalization rates, the following new, more stringent regulations will be in effect beginning Monday, November 29, 2021, through Sunday, January 09, 2022, initially, to maintain university operations:
  • The semester dates for the faculty can be found here: The schedule of classes and rooms will be published by the end of September.
  • Documents on the course content are also provided online (Moodle). However, this does not mean that these documents must generally also be made available in the form of a recording or streaming. Therefore, you cannot expect face-to-face lectures to be recorded or streamed.
  • The obligation to wear a medical mask (FFP2 mask is recommended) remains unchanged in all buildings as well as at the place in the seminar rooms even if the 1.5 meter safety distance is observed. Specifically, this means that masks may not be removed in any course. Classes may only be held in person if a safety distance of 1.5 meters is ensured and masks are still required. If the safety distance cannot be maintained, the teaching must be offered as online teaching (hybrid variants are possible). Otherwise, face-to-face teaching will be maintained. Laboratory courses will continue to take place in presence.
  • A strict 3G regulation (vaccinated, recovered, tested) continue to apply in the university buildings. The university is open to all persons in compliance with 3G regulations (vaccinated, recovered or tested). In general, there is an obligation to prove a current negative COVID test, which is not older than 24 hours. Exempt from the obligation to test are those who are vaccinated or recovered (obligation to provide proof!). In this context we refer again to the various vaccination possibilities also on our campuses in Frankfurt. The testing center will remain open to students and all other university personnel until further notice. The testing permit is for internal use at the university only.
  • Only professionally performed POC (citizen's test) or PCR tests with certificate are valid; self-tests are not valid.
  • A negative test for Covid 19 does not protect against a quarantine order without vaccination. If you have contracted Covid19 unvaccinated, regardless of where or on what occasion, or have had close contact with infected persons as defined by the RKI, this will inevitably result in a domestic seclusion order of 10 or 14days. During this time, you are not allowed to enter the campus. These periods of time, which are ordered again by the responsible health office for each new contact situation, are missing for you to cope with the content of your studies. This legal quarantine requirement does not apply to vaccinated and recovered individuals.
  • On campus, compliance with the 3G rule is monitored by a security service from the start of lectures. Security checks will be further tightened. Violations will be consistently punished in compliance with changes in laws and regulations: Students and faculty who are not vaccinated and recovered or cannot produce a certified test that is no more than 24 hours old will be expelled from campus. If falsified documents are present, the consequences range from disciplinary action to criminal charges. Students may be exmatriculated. We emphasize: The misconduct of individuals must neither endanger nor shake the strong community as well as the health of individuals; such a pandemic can only be overcome together in solidarity. In order to facilitate the controls, students and staff involved in teaching with a 2G status in building 1 or the building 4 can get a colored wristband from Thursday, November 25, 2021, upon presentation of the proofs, which will allow access until further notice. Random checks will also take place during ongoing events.
  • For the use of the self-study center, the library (longer stay) and the rooms/corridors for study groups, the status 2G applies from Monday, November 29, 2021. This also applies to the student cafés.
  • In order to control the pandemic situation in the long term and to prevent severe disease progression among those still unvaccinated, we urge people to get vaccinated or "boostered."
  • We recommend that you bring laptops or similar, as individual courses could also be broadcast online.
  • Regardless of the type of course, exams will be scheduled in a face-to-face setting.
