Dear Students, Staff and Guests of the University of Münster,
In view of the rapid developments regarding the coronavirus and the recommendations for reducing the rate of infection, the University of Münster sees itself faced with constantly changing circumstances and challenges.
On 13 March the state government of NRW announced its decision to postpone the beginning of the summer semester at universities in North Rhine-Westphalia until 20 April in response to the coronavirus. In order to slow the spread of the virus and safeguard the health of all, we believe this step is sensible and necessary.
We will continue to keep you updated on the latest developments on this page.
The crisis management team under the direction of Rector Prof. Wessels and the two central administrative staff units "Study and Teaching" and "University Operation" are closely following the developments and coordinating their response in cooperation with the responsible external and internal representatives. You can rest assured that all necessary measures are being taken to protect the well-being of our students, employees and guests as best as possible.
Below you will find important information on current measures and recommendations on courses of action. As developments arise and new information becomes available, these pages will be continually updated with further instructions and recommendations. Please check this website regularly as all information regarding the coronavirus response at the University of Münster will be available here.
