The HfWU will return to face-to-face operation for the winter semester. The current infectious events and, if necessary, a short-term and flexible adjustment will remain the guideline. Proven online teaching formats will be retained.
HfWU Rector Professor Dr. Andreas Frey wants to reopen the university: "In principle, we plan to conduct the winter semester as a face-to-face semester, provided that the further course of the Corona pandemic allows it." HfWU is now providing planning security, especially for students who need housing at the two university locations.
Crucial for a complete return to face-to-face classes is above all the vaccination coverage rate among students. In addition, there will be simplified access control and tracking and, as at the schools, the abolition of the distance rule. The Ministry of Science is negotiating this with the Ministry of Social Affairs. We expect this to be finally decided by mid-July. We are a face-to-face university, so we would like to open up the university as much as possible in the winter semester.
Even if the spacing rule does not go away immediately or depends on incidence values, we can accommodate smaller groups in larger rooms with appropriate spacing. Larger events can be split up or initially offered in hybrid or online formats. These hybrid or online-only formats should take place on contiguous days. 3G proofs (vaccinated, tested or recovered) also offer further degrees of freedom.
The rector of HfWU will continue to inform about all developments, new information and news in personal e-mails.
All this information will then also be found on this website.
