Working and learning spaces

University and State Library (ULB)
Due to the hygiene and distancing regulations in place, not all spaces in the ULB reading rooms are open for use. To nonetheless provide sufficient space for reading and learning, numerous alternatives have been created for this semester: Working spaces are being created in the Mensa CAMPO and the “Mensa im Hofgarten” tent. Additional working spaces are available at the faculty branch libraries.

General Students’ Committee (AStA)
In collaboration with the Studierendenwerk Bonn, the AStA has created 59 working spaces on our premises in Nassestraße 11.

Circular 07/2021 clarifies important issues regarding the impact of the current Corona Lockdown on university operations. Specifically, it addresses face-to-face teaching, face-to-face exams and exam preparation, university library, institute libraries and learning spaces, work/home office, childcare, and opening of university buildings. Circular 09/2021 also provides further important guidance on exemptions for on-site examinations.

(Updated 01/06) Employment law-related measures due to the current lockdown

The Department of Human Resources Management has compiled additional information for employees regarding the impact of the lockdown on work. This involves further information on the topics: Home office, trainees, childcare, persons with pre-existing conditions, business trips, entering NRW and officially ordered quarantine.

(Updated 01/05) New regulations on entering the state of North Rhine-Westphalia

As of December 28, a new Ordinance on entering North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) applies. Persons arriving to NRW from countries considered risk areas by the Robert Koch Institute must test for the coronavirus via rapid test or PCR test. Tests must be taken within 24 hours prior to entering or immediately upon entering NRW. Different regulations apply to Great Britain and South Africa. There are some exceptions to this rule. Those taking a PCR test instead of a rapid test must quarantine until test results are received. Digital registration continues to be required for entering NRW. All information and contact details are available on the NRW state website.

(Updated 12/08) Contact possibility in case of suspicion

In order to be able to react quickly to corona (suspected) cases within the university, these can be reported to the Occupational Health and Safety Department at the e-mail address specially set up for this purpose. This is only an internal procedure - possible reporting obligations, for example to the public health department, remain in place!
