Dear Members of Staff, Dear Students,


Once again, the coming weeks are likely to take their toll. Be careful and don’t be too harsh on yourself if you are unable to fulfil all of your responsibilities. Take care of yourself and your near and dear and try to remain confident.


Yours sincerely,
The Rectorate

Information from the Coronavirus Crisis Team

The Coronavirus Crisis Team has now recommenced weekly meetings and will publish the results of its consultations on the University’s webpages.

In view of the current situation, the University of Greifswald is acting cautiously. By this, we mean that classes may still be taught on site. However, we would like to point out that the hygiene regulations (self-distancing, hand hygiene, face masks + airing, as well as the ‘3G’ (vaccinated, recovered from a previous COVID-19 infection, and tested) rules) must be observed and strictly monitored. The teaching of classes in online formats is a good option that is open to members of teaching staff. We are sure that you will be able to find a suitable solution together with your students.

Get-togethers that include the consumption of food and drinks (such as Christmas parties) are not permitted at the University as it is not possible in such situations to observe the hygiene regulations properly – in particular, the permanent wearing of face masks.

For higher levels of security during testing, we recommend you use the services provided at the test centres.

Booster vaccinations and, if applicable, primary vaccinations will be available for all members of the university community (employees and students) on 13 December 2021 and on 12 January 2022 in the University Main Building and at the library on the Beitzplatz Campus (further information to follow).

Testimonial Kasia Dolata

‘Spending an ERASMUS semester in Greifswald was the best decision I could have made. The opportunity to gain so many new experiences, broaden my horizons and get to know people from many different countries have made my choice well worth it. The University of Greifswald provides excellent guidance and support to its ERASMUS+ students. There are so many trips and events on offer.’ (Kasia - Poland)
