Current information about Corona

Since 1 August 2020, RUB has been operating under Covid 19 conditions. The rules 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. Due to the increasing infection rates in Germany, RUB has modified the previous regulations on 14 December 2020. Since then, working from home and online teaching have been the norm. This will be the case at least until 14 February 2021.

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".
