Current information about Corona

Ruhr-Universität Bochum and all its facilities have closed their buildings since Wednesday 18 March. This way RUB is making an effective contribution to slow down the epidemic in Germany.

The campus is practically empty now. Except for a few employees, who are maintaining the necessary infrastructure and setting up a low-encounter operation on site. All other employees are working at home or on stand-by. This ensures that everyone – whether at home or on campus – can keep the necessary distance from each other.

All important questions for the continued operation of RUB are answered here centrally. They are updated and amended daily. Every member of RUB is encouraged to regularly come here for information.
