Planning and teaching classes in the winter semester of 2020/21

  • face-to-face classes
  • maximum number of people in every room → plan for large classrooms (PDF)
  • 1.5 metres distance must be maintained between all musicians. There must be at least 4 metres in front of wind instruments and singers.
  • Rehearsal sessions for large ensembles are to be no longer that 75 minutes.
  • Participant lists for lectures, seminars, and ensemble classes, as well as choir and orchestra rehearsals have to be handed-in at the registration counter 20 minutes before the start of class at the latest. This will make it quicker for everyone to get into the building.

You find detailed information in the circular from 19.07.2020.


Opening times of the university buildings and registration

The registration system still applys: in general, every person must register when they enter a university building and put their names on the list for the relevant room. In the “Fürstenhaus”, registration is at the reception. The “hzh”, “Palais” and the “Beethovenhaus” will have a registration counter during peak hours. Outside peak hours, everyone who enters the building must add their name to the available room-lists themselves and write down the time when they leave. This will be the case all day in “Haydnhaus” and “Bachhaus”.

The university buildings will remain closed for the public until further notice. Admission is only granted to public events.


Using the library

Starting on October 5 there will be new conditions of rules (PDF) for the university library.


Show responsibility

You contribute to the fact tlose the university altogether.
Please follow our security and hygiene rules unconditionally in order to be able to trace a possible chain of infection. Failure to do so may mean that we have to tighten the measures again or even close the university as a whole.
