WU MNS-Maske am Campus

July 2, 2020, 10:00 am

Overview of the services that will be available to you on Campus WU in the summer of 2020:
  • Starting June 15, wearing a face mask is only be necessary in the buildings of WU if the general minimum distance cannot be maintained (e.g. in waiting areas or accessing exams on campus).

  • Starting July 1, all WU buildings will be open to you again. You can use the study areas and independent study zones again as of July 1 during the general building opening hours (Monday to Friday from 7:00am to 8:00pm). To ensure compliance with the prescribed minimum safety distance, the number of available seats is reduced, however.

  • Until the end of September, the Study Service Center (SSC) will offer its various services at specific times, in some cases only upon appointment. This applies e.g. to advisory services related to need-based scholarship grants and the submission of applications, student admission/re-registration, the issuing of student ID cards, and the collection of graduation documents. Up-to-date information about the current opening hours and contacts is available on the SSC web page.  

  • The International Office is also available to you again – for more information, please see the IO web page.

  • As of August 3, the Central Library (including the Language Resource Center), the Library for Law, and the Library for Social Sciences will open for studying again as of August 3, but the number of people that can be admitted to the libraries will be limited. Please note that it will be necessary to reserve a seat in advance. The lending service for borrowing books is still in place, but it will be temporarily unavailable during the library break from July 20 to 31. For detailed information, please see the WU University Library website.

  • Starting on August 3, the PC practice labs in the LC building will be available again, exclusively during summer break opening hours. The PC practice labs in the TC building will remain closed for the time being.

  • Starting on September 1, a limited number of project rooms (listed in ROOMS) will be available to you again. We expect that booking project rooms as usual will be possible again when the winter semester starts (October 1, 2020).


Outlook for 2020/2021 winter semester:

Even though the forecasts for autumn regarding regular university operations are looking relatively good, we see it as our responsibility to prepare for alternative scenarios for WU’s teaching activities.
For this reason, we’re currently reviewing our plans for the 2020/21 winter semester and developing a “plan B” to be ready in the event that access to the campus and its facilities should remain restricted. The course catalog for the 2020/21 winter semester will therefore be published later than usual, probably in mid-July.
