Current information about Corona

On 1 August 2020, RUB switched to a new form of operations, i.e. operations under Covid conditions. Its aim is to facilitate social life on campus once again and to create more normality under coronavirus conditions. These regulations are likely to remain in force until the end of the winter semester, i.e. until 31 March 2021 – to the extent that the epidemiological developments and political guidelines will permit.

As usual, detailed regulations, information and forms will be successively be published here, on a general information page, on target group-specific pages for students, members of the teaching staff and employees as well as in the "Serviceportal".
