Due to current developments on the topic of the coronavirus, the Bavarian state government has postponed the start of lecture operations until 20 April!⁠

The new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and the resulting infectious disease ("Corona virus induced disease", COVID-19) continue to spread. The number of cases is increasing in Europe. The Landshut University of Applied Sciences has created this web page that will be regularly updated to inform all university members and students. 

For additional information the Federal Ministry of Health has launched a FAQ page.

Any additional questions can be adressed to pressestelle(at)haw-landshut.de.

The Helpdesk, the Student Service Centre, the General Student Advice and Career Service, the International Office, the library and the Vocational Training Academy are open again but can still be reached by e-mail and phone.

The library has been reopend since March 11th!! Here you'll find further information!

New corona rules as of April 4th

Most corona restrictions will be lifted in Bavaria on April 3rd. The universities are now being asked to define their own hygiene protection measures.

We would now like to inform you about the most important points:

Elimination of 3G controls

As of Monday, the 3G controls will no longer apply at the university; Those who have not been vaccinated and have not recovered therefore no longer have to provide daily test evidence. Infected people who have tested positive still have no access to the university buildings.

FFP2 masks are not required anymore

In the buildings and closed rooms of the university, the obligation to wear an FFP2 mask is suspended until further notice.

Corona virus incidence

Keep space between tables

Lecture halls, computer rooms and laboratories were equipped with tables and seats in order to ensure a space of 1.5 metres in any direction to the next person. Please note that tables and seats are not to be rearranged. Any kind of rearrangement needs to be cleared by the safety-at-work officer.

At the moment, no students are allowed on campus. Lectures take place online only.

Report a COVID-illness

In case of a COVID-19-illness local health authorities will provide necessary measures; this includes possible quarantine provisions of contact persons. Irrespective of that, we ask you to inform us immediately if you are tested positive for COVID-19. Please send an E-Mail to Arbeitssicherheit(at)haw-landshut.de. Further steps will be initiated after that.

Extended mandatory use of face masks in regions with incidence-value above 35 new infections

Universities in regions with a 7-day-incidence-value of above 35 are required to comply with regulations of an extended mandatory use of face masks: the mandatory use of face masks does not only apply to circulation areas but also to all kinds of lecture rooms – even when seated. The extended use of face masks also applies to lecturers; an exemption can only be made in cases when they are seated behind a plexiglass.

Dingolfing-Landau: (PNP Ticker)
