The presence of employees in the buildings of the UR is necessary for the maintenance of university operations. At the same time, it must continue to be the primary objective to prevent chains of infection from person to person and to protect persons from risk groups.

Please coordinate with your supervisor and colleagues to use the offices, laboratories and workshops as prescribed. Please pay particular attention to the regulations on staying in buildings and the urgent recommendation to wear protective masks.

Mandatory deviations from these regulations must be requested by your supervisor by e-mail to krisenmanagementuni-rostockde.

Entry to buildings

With the start of the winter semester 2020/21, there is still restricted access to and stay in buildings of the University of Rostock.

University members are permitted to enter the buildings provided that they

  • perform activities in the buildings which are related to teaching and represent official matters (employees of the University of Rostock, including auxiliary staff)
  • attend courses and attend dates in connection with academic studies and lectures

Event participants may only stay in the respective building for the corresponding period of the event. Any stay beyond this period is prohibited. In addition, guests from outside the university are only allowed access to the buildings by invitation. Furthermore, the buildings will remain closed to the public.

Staying in buildings

Encounters in the buildings, for example in the corridor, in tea kitchens and staircases, cannot be completely ruled out.

The following regulations must be observed:

  •     The presence in the buildings of the UR is necessary to maintain the university operation continuously.
  •     Work in laboratories and workshops is only permitted if direct contact is prevented and work safety is maintained.
  •     If possible, wear a protective mask in the public areas of the buildings.

Please note, that information concerning the use of the offices of the UR with more than one person at a time will follow.

Protective masks

Wearing a simple protective mask in the public areas of UR's buildings (corridors, entrance areas, tea kitchens etc.) is sufficient to protect other people from infection.

The UR does not provide protective masks. In case of business needs, protective masks can be purchased from the Uni-Shop and financed from the department's funds. Central funds are not available.
