Information about the Corona Virus


The Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts has decided to postpone the start of lectures at state universities until 20 April 2020. The Merz Akademie is also called upon to do everything in its power to support the authorities in counteracting the spread of the corona virus.

It is the goal of the university management and the teaching staff to arrange the summer semester 2020 in such a way that the examination performances of all planned courses can be taken regularly and that the restrictions for students and teaching staff are kept to a minimum.

The rectorate has therefore decided the following measures:

  • The courses take place in a remote and an attendance phase.
  • The remote phase (without attendance at the university) will start on 30.3.2020. The attendance phase (at the university) will start on 20 April 2020.
  • Students and lecturers can find all current information on Campusnet/Internal/SoSe 2020.
  • The running of the university is restricted. Please plan visits by prior arrangement and note the information in the calendar of events.
