Current News as at June 26th 2020

The districts of Gütersloh and Warendorf have been declared risk areas within Germany due to the infection figures in accordance with § 19 of the 10th Corona Control Ordinance of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.

On this current occasion, we would like to point out once again that students and employees who enter the state of Rhineland-Palatinate and who have been in a risk area (domestic or foreign) at any time within 14 days prior to entry are obliged to go into domestic quarantine immediately upon entry by direct route for a period of 14 days after their entry. This also applies to persons who have first entered another federal state. Attendance at the university is prohibited during the individual quarantine period.

Should you be affected by the legal order of such a domestic quarantine, we ask you as a student to inform your deanery or as a staff member your personnel department by e-mail.

Current News as at May 5th 2020

The federal commandment about social distancing and avoidance of contact is ongoing - therewith, all events, teaching courses and meetings in presence and/or on-site our University's three locations are cancelled until further notice.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS: Conducting written examinations and tests in the summer semester 2020

Hochschule Kaiserslautern and the Corona-Virus

Dear Members and Friends of our University

The ongoing Corona-crisis is a big challenge for all of us. New knowledge, new rules and new situations come up on a daily basis and we have to find ways to cope with these changes.

The situation constantly requires major adaptations in studying and working as we know it - and we are finding new ways.

As a matter of concern, we want to keep you updated and well informed about the support we can provide, about solutions in detail, new rules and the process of normalisation.

Plus, we want to display the outcomes of meeting this challenge with a creative, scientific and digital approach that is meaningful, even after this crisis is over.

STUDYING & TEACHING

As in all of Germany, all lectures, meetings and events on-site Hochschule Kaiserslautern's three campus locations are cancelled until further notice.

In 2020, the summer semester is primarily conducted in virtual and digital spheres. 

Lectures are held mainly online. We are elaborating rules for laboratories and other location-dependent courses - meanwhile most of them are still cancelled.

Constant efforts are made to plan and conduct a well-regulated, secure and realistic re-opening of on-site activities on our three campuses in Kaiserslautern, Zweibrücken and Pirmasens.

Please make use of our many online events, virtual consulting and support. Have a look at what we have to offer.

EXAMS

Exams can be conducted after consulting with the deanery in charge and with the executive board of the University. 

Ongoing work on semester projects and Bachelor or Master thesis is possible but subject to individual consultations with the lecturer/instructor in charge.

LET'S KEEP IN MIND

All measures, changes and restrictions are taken to minimize the risks of this pandemic and to provide the possibilities to properly conduct this summer semester at the same time. Please contribute to make the best of this situation!

Read up on Corona-Virus from official and trusted sources, such as the Covid-19 webpage of the World Health Organization (WHO).
