Cautious Outlook towards the Winter Semester 21/22

Dear students,

You are probably wondering about lectures in the next winter semester. As the President’s office, we have had many discussions about this in the past few weeks, both inside and outside the university, for example with politicians and associations. We have lobbied for a university vaccination campaign through the state rectors' conference.

There are now enough appointments available through the vaccination centers (“Impfzentren“) without prioritization. If you have not yet received a Corona vaccination, you can register for an appointment at the following address:

For lectures, we anticipate a return of face-to-face teaching in the winter semester and look forward to be at the university. However, we also anticipate that spacing rules may apply, so that some lectures will continue to take place online. The organization of such a partial presence is not easy, since a time gap is necessary when switching from face-to-face to online teaching on the same day, because you do not necessarily live right next to the university. The departments are working on solutions, giving preference to students who so far have spent little time at the university.

Information about your study program will be available from your department. Planning is still subject to change, both for the positive, if a high vaccination rate is achieved, and for the negative, if mutations reinforce the pandemic again.

I wish you every success for the upcoming exams and hope to see you at the university in the winter semester,

With kind regards

Prof. Dr. Marco Winzker

Vice President for Teaching, Learning and Further Education
