To make the start of your studies easier, we have compiled some tips and information on this site.
Studying in times of coronavirus
In the 2021/22 winter semester, face-to-face teaching will once again be the norm. This has been made possible by the relaxation of the previously applicable strict social distancing rules for classroom teaching, in the context of on-site infection and health protection. To this end, only 50% of the seats in lecture halls and seminar rooms will be occupied, and the mask requirement still applies. There are also still online and virtually supported formats to complement face-to-face teaching. The decision to opt for online formats is made by the respective subjects.
The University of Bayreuth also recommends getting vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2. Vaccination campaigns take place at the University again and again.
On our coronavirus information page you will find general information about any changes to the opening hours of campus facilities, to our hygiene plan, and a detailed FAQ section. It also lists the current regulations and deadlines that affect your studies. Please also note the binding rules of the University of Bayreuth for spending time on campus and in the external offices.
