Physical presence is essential to the nature and self-image of our university. As a result of the current situation, a variety of restrictions are necessary to ensure the operational capability of the UR and to protect the health of colleagues and students. The framework for action in this regard is in particular the University-Corona-Ordinance M-V as well as the Infection Protection Act. You can also find current information on the websites of the district responsible for you, for the City of Rostock on the websites of the city hall.
The faculties and institutions can best decide, taking into account local conditions, how to ensure operational capability and at the same time protect the health of employees. The decision as to whether employees can also perform their work in a home office should therefore be made by the direct supervisor (subject supervisor) in consultation with the employee. For the transitional period from March 20, 2022 until the entry into force of the "Mobile Working" service agreement, employees must perform their work in the presence of others. The option of working in a home office remains, but there is no entitlement to do so.
Most buildings are open for students and employees of the University of Rostock. The buildings are closed for visitors. There is a general obligation for all persons in the buildings of the University of Rostock to wear a mouth-nose covering. All regulations in detail can be found here on the web pages "CORONA SonderInformation".
In case of changes of the current regulations we inform in the service portal under UR-internal news.

The University of Rostock is a place for learning and working, where the presence of employees and students is of central importance for good cooperation.
The Rectorate recommends to the faculties and institutions that, for the transitional period from 20.03.2022 until the entry into force of the service agreement "Mobile working", work performance is to be provided by employees in presence. The possibility of working in a home office remains, but there is no entitlement.
The applicable regulations are explained in more detail under CORONA Sonderinformation > Personnel > Regulations concerning the place of work.
The buildings are open to students and employees of the UR for the completion of your tasks, concerns and participation in the events. Visitors are still not allowed to enter. The buildings will be open for business on a limited basis.
A security service has also been commissioned to secure the building. This service will carry out access controls at various university locations in order to prevent persons from outside the company from entering the university buildings without authorization. Employees should also be able to identify themselves to this security guard.
The applicable regulations are explained in more detail at CORONA Sonderinformationen > Gebäudebewirtschaftung > Regelungen zum Aufenthalt in Gebäuden.
Offices, consultation rooms, tea kitchens etc. should only be used by one person at a time. Please wear a mouth-nose cover to protect yourself and others. The applicable regulations are explained in more detail under CORONA Sonderinformationen > Gebäudebewirtschaftung > Regelungen zum Aufenthalt in Gebäuden.
Operations in laboratories and special rooms are only permitted if the regulations on distances are observed and work safety is guaranteed at the same time. The regulations are explained in more detail under CORONA Sonderinformationen > Forschung > Regelungen zum Laborbetrieb.
Events for internal organization (e.g.: work meetings, discussions, service consultations, etc.) as well as events with external persons (e.g.: project meetings with external contractors, further training with external participants or lecturers) are to be carried out as video conferences if possible.
According to the current decree, events in presence are to be reduced to the absolute minimum. If events in attendance, which serve to maintain university operations in teaching, research and administration, must take place, this is possible under the relevant regulations.
A framework for action is now available to enable university employees to conduct indoor and outdoor events (except for courses) in times of Corona.
The applicable regulations are explained in more detail under CORONA Special Information > Basic Information > Framework for the organisation of presence events (excluding for courses).
Events for internal organization (e.g.: work meetings, discussions, service consultations, etc.) as well as events with external persons (e.g.: project meetings with external contractual partners, further training with external participants or lecturers) are to be held as video conferences if possible. For meetings planned in presence, please critically check whether it is possible to switch to a video conference.
If an event takes place in presence, the distance rules must be observed and at the same time work safety must be ensured.
For this purpose, the maximum room occupancy rate is shown in the LSF. Under CORONA Special Information > Building Management > Regulations on the use of rooms you will find further information on room occupancy and a sample seating plan.
