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.

Stay at the university
The TU Bergakademie campus will reopen for approved face-to-face events on June 28, 2021. With the exception of the main building (Akademiestraße 6), all university buildings will be open to the public on that date.
All members, employees, students and guests of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg are obliged to wear a correctly fitting mouth-nose-covering (FFP2 or surgical mask) in all buildings and on the campus outside the buildings. This mask obligation applies in all rooms and on general circulation areas.
Please protect yourself and others
- by avoiding contacts
- by adhering to the AHA+L formula (which stands for keeping distance, hygiene, everyday mask and ventilation)
- by acting prudently (e.g. wearing your mask outside of the buildings, no personal face-to-face meetings).
Diseased and suspected cases
Anyone exhibiting typical COVID-19 symptoms must stay home and contact a physician. In the event of an infection with the coronavirus or contact with infected persons, employees must immediately inform their supervisor(s) and the Human Resources Department (personaleinzelzuv [dot] tu-freiberg [dot] de). If you as a supervisor become aware of a case of infection among your employees, please also pass on this information directly to the Human Resources Department in compliance with data protection regulations.
Students are requested to contact the Student Office (studierendenbuerozuv [dot] tu-freiberg [dot] de) immediately in the event of infection with the coronavirus or contact with a confirmed case of infection.
Individuals who have had or are having contact with a person infected with coronavirus up to 14 days prior will not be allowed to enter University buildings.
