We kindly request everyone to be mindful when participating in activities at the university and to follow the recommendations that help us remain healthy and reduce the risk of getting infected with the coronavirus: keep a safe distance during lectures and seminars, sit in every other seat, wear personal protective equipment which covers nose and mouth (face masks, respirators and other equipment), wash hands regularly and, if you feel symptoms of cold or other infectious diseases, stay home.
All information about timetable changes will be provided by the faculties before the start of the lectures.
