Summer semester 2022

Starting your studies: In the summer semester of 2022 we will meet mainly on campus at the HWR Berlin. The university plans as many face-to-face courses as possible. An FFP2 mask is a must-have though − as a protection against Covid-19.

Start of the semester: #TogetherAgain

You will be starting your studies in the summer semester of 2022, at a time that is marked by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the Ukraine war. Despite these uncertainties, the HWR Berlin is planning as many face-to-face courses as possible to give you the opportunity to get to know professors and students and to work together with them on campus.

  • Please assume that 70 percent of all courses take place on campus!

Vaccinated, recovered or tested − for safety's sake

The new semester starts on 01 April 2022. It is still unclear how the pandemic will develop. For the safety of all of us, you must prove that you are fully vaccinated, recovered or have tested negative in order to participate in classroom activities. Let us enable more togetherness − and take responsibility for others and for ourselves.

What does the summer semester 2022 have in store?

Prof. Dr. Susanne Meyer, Vice President of the HWR Berlin, welcomes you at the start of the summer semester 2022:

What rules apply on site?

The HWR Berlin advises that the following hygiene and protection measures should be adhered to on the campus and in the buildings:

Vaccinated, recovered or tested negative

The HWR Berlin strongly recommends that you continue to follow the 3G rule on campus and in the buildings:

  • This means that you should be fully vaccinated, recovered or tested negative on a daily basis in order to enter the university.
  • This applies to participation in classroom events as well as to visits to the library.

Across the university and on campus grounds, the urgent recommendation remains: please keep at least 1.5 metres distance from other people to protect yourself and others.

We recommend wearing an FFP2 mask in all buildings of the HWR Berlin.

Rooms in which courses or examinations take place should be ventilated every 20 minutes.
