Hygiene Concept and General Information

As an international university it goes without saying that we keep in permanent touch with global developments – whether in the areas of economics, politics or, like at present, public health. We wish furthermore to ensure that people interact responsibly and considerately, both on and off the campus.

The measures taken so far, which we have introduced and communicated at the university since the beginning of the Corona crisis, are summarized in our hygiene concept. The hygiene concept also contains information on how to deal with risk groups. The hygiene concept must be implemented at all courses, meetings and appointments in attendance.

For these reasons we are providing further information about the coronavirus, and ask you to follow the links below to find out more about the virus and how to behave in particular situations.

Please note: We ask you to monitor the latest developments yourselves as the situation unfolds.

  • wash your hands frequently
  • do not shake hands
  • if you sneeze or cough, do so into your elbow, not into your hands
  • keep your distance from other people
  • open the window frequently to let in fresh air.
