Coronavirus – Rector's information
The global pandemic that has prevailed since 2020 poses major challenges for our university. From March to October 2020, the TU Bergakademie was in standby mode, partly with hybrid teaching formats in the summer semester 2020 and at the beginning of the winter semester 2020/21. The further increase in the number of infections required a campus closure since December 2020. The Corona pandemic will continue to accompany us in 2021, influencing university operations and placing demands on new formats for teaching, research, scientific exchange and events.
Information for university operations under the pandemic conditions can be found on the following pages.
