WU MNS-Maske am Campus

October 30, 2020, 6:00 pm

From November 3, 2020 on, courses will be held remotely. 
What does that mean for you?
  • Any classes planned to be held on campus starting November 3 will be taught online instead. Your lecturers will send you the details by email and update the course syllabus, if necessary.  

  • During the next two weeks (i.e. until November 15, 2020), exams may still be held on campus – subject to extended safety measures. Your lecturers will keep you updated. Please note: You have to wear a mask covering your mouth and nose at all times during exams.

  • Effective November 16, 2020, exams (including the exam week in November) will be offered online only. We are updating the exam schedule for the exam week in November in the next couple of days.

  • For safety reasons, all personal appointments with your lecturers (e.g. office hours) will also be online.  

  • The WU library will stay open for WU students. Please visit the webpages of the library to learn more.  

  • Limited opening times of the buildings (departments and service facilities) will apply. 

  • The project rooms, learning zones, lounges for students and PC labs will also be closed from November 3 on. Any bookings for project rooms in this period are therefore invalid. 


What's next?

WU will offer remote teaching until further notice. We are closely monitoring the situation and are in contact with the responsible authorities. If numbers go down and the situation becomes more stable, classes may again be held on campus. If that is the case,  we will inform you in due time.
