At the moment it is only possibile to take away food in our canteens. The meals are sold in disposable containers - without cutlery - for takeaway. Unfortunately, containers that you bring with you cannot be filled. This also applies to reusable coffee cups (e.g. MensaCup or ThermoCup).

Masks are mandatory in the canteens. Please keep the required minimum distance of 1.5 meters and follow the designated paths. For payment, please use the MensaCard to avoid cash payments.

Student halls and accomodation

As of April 1st, 2021, the new new Regulation of the Sachsen Ministry for Social Affairs and Social Cohesion for protection against coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 will apply.

Contact restrictions (social distancing) and the prohibition of all common leisure activities are essential elements of the regulation. For this reason, the previously accessible common rooms and sports facilities in or near our residence halls will unfortunately remain closed.

Parties are non-conform to the contact restrictions and thus unacceptable and neglect in this time.

Please keep the bathrooms and kitchens cleaner than usual. Use the common kitchens for cooking only, not for meetings, these days. Ventilate your rooms and- if possible - the bathrooms and kitchens several times a day.

Please do not receive guests for the moment.

In order to minimize the risk of infection, no subletting is permitted in the residence halls further on.

We recommend all students hall residents to use the Corona-Warn-App.

Please wear a mask in the residence hall until you reach the door to your room/flat and keep distance. Use the elevator individually, only, if possible.

Appointments in the Student Housing Division or with the caretaker are only possible by prior arrangement; masks are compulsory.

If a suspected or quarantined case occurs in your environment or you yourself are affected, you must follow the rules of conduct listed here:

  • Everyone must remain in their room.
  • Clean the kitchen and bathroom frequently and thoroughly with common cleaning agents.
  • Use the kitchen individually and one after the other.
