The instructions of the local responsible health office always apply!
Until you have the test result, behave as if you were tested positive.

If you have tested positive for SARS COVID19 or have to go into quarantine (also called domestic seclusion) due to official orders, e.g. as a related person in the same household or so-called contact category I, the official orders apply.

Please enter the test result into the Corona Warning App. For more information, please see the Infection Prevention and Quarantine Fact Sheet.
For staff and faculty:

Within the university, please be sure to inform your supervisors and Occupational Health and Safety (arbeitsschutz(at)hr.fra-uas.de) as well as the HR department via abwesenheitsmeldung(at)hr.fra-uas.remove-this.de.

As long as the course of the illness is mild, you will perform your work duties remotely.

For students:

Immediately report the quarantine or Category I contact to Occupational Safety and Health: arbeitsschutz(at)hr.fra-uas.de.
If necessary, further steps will be taken and communicated to protect university employees.

If you have had contact via third parties, our robust recommended safety measures will suffice.

If you have had close contact (e.g. contact under 1.5 meters without a mask for more than 15 minutes or several hours with a mask in an unventilated room) with a person who has tested positive, the previous instructions concerning "tested positive" apply.

If you had Category II contact, meaning you followed the rules ("AHA+L": distance + hygiene +  masks + ventilation) , then almost no further action needs to be taken. For more information, see the RKI's chart on contact tracing (Schaubild des RKI).

However, pay even stricter attention to compliance and implementation of the AHA+L rules and contact the authorities at 116117 or the local phone number if symptoms occur.

The Office of Student Affairs is happy to address your concerns. Please contact us by mail.

We are happy to help you with questions regarding enrollment, applications and certificates, as well as questions regarding re-registration or semester fees.

We are pleased that you have decided to study at Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences.

In order to begin your studies, you will have to enroll at the Office of Student Affairs (StuPort). Please refer to our admission letter for further details.

The buildings on campus – with the exception of building 9 – are still open, so semester tickets can be validated there.

If, however, you are are not able to get to the Frankfurt UAS campus, AStA, Stuport Student Services and the public transport authority RMV have now come to an agreement about a transitional solution due to the current crisis situation.

It is possible to downlad and print your public transport ticket here (the ticket is only available in German). Please be sure to insert your full name in the appropriate field. The tickets are valid until September 31st 2021.

The federal legislature has declared that "pandemic-related closures of educational institutions within the meaning of Section 2 BAföG as well as abroad (short-term closures of educational institutions or extension of their lecture-free periods) are harmless under funding law." Students, pupils who are dependent on benefits under the Federal Training Assistance Act (BAföG) should therefore not suffer any financial disadvantages if their training institution is temporarily closed or the start of the semester is postponed due to the COVID 19 pandemic.For more information, visit the HMWK website at  How does Corona affect the issues surrounding BAföG and AFBG? (as of 10/21/2020).


Exams are still taking place. Compliance of necessary security and hygiene regulations is required. Should this be not possible, Faculties and lecturers are called upon to offer alternative examination formats (for example online). Should this not be possible either due to specific competencies that need to be assessed, the examination will be postponed to a later date.

All exams which can be done online should be done online - with the exemption of written exams.

Your faculty will inform you at least two weeks prior to the exam about the specific details for the exam.

In deviation from § 9 . 2 of the „Allgemeine Bestimmungen“ (General provisions) Bachelor/Master, a new withdrawal regulation has been stipulated. For written examinations and oral exams as final or partial module examination, the student can declare his or her withdrawal from the examination without giving specific reasons, by simply not showing up in the physical or virtual examination room. In this case, the examination performance is booked as withdrawal (code „RU“), so that the examination attempt is deemed not to have been taken.

Exchange students who are scheduled for an oral examination between 29 June and 31 October 2020 and whose planned stay has already ended by this examination date can submit an application for SARS-CoV-2 exceptional regulations to the respective examination board. The application must be accompanied by appropriate evidence that it is not possible to attend the examination. The examination committee decides on the application and the appropriate special SARS-CoV-2 arrangements for an exam.

The SARS-CoV-2 special regulation also applies to foreign students who are enrolled in a course of study at Frankfurt UAS and who, due to travel, entry and residence restrictions brought about by SARS-Covid-19, cannot take part in a classroom exam in the summer semester 2020.

Please contact your faculty for more details:

Regarding options for recognition, repetition or conclusion of interrupted or aborted internships, we are in contact with the practice partners and will be working out a joint solution.
