1. Do I have to wear a mask at the University? Expand entry

As of Monday, 9 May 2022, masks are no longer mandatory at Friedrich Schiller University. However, it is still strongly recommended to wear a qualified mouth-nose protection (medical/FFP2 mask) inside the university – especially in larger groups and if the minimum distance of 1.5 metres cannot be maintained.

Until Friday, 20 May, all students at Friedrich Schiller University Jena can pick up two free FFP2 masks (one time only) in the foyer of the Ernst Abbe Campus (in front of lecture halls 4 and 5) by presenting their thoska card. They are handed out Monday to Friday between 10.30 am and 12.30 pm. Please understand if there are any waiting times and always ensure that the minimum distance is observed here as well. Please always make sure to wear the masks correctly and allow them to dry for seven days before reuse.

A video on how to wear best and handle FFP2-masks can be found here (German only). 

2. Detecting chains of infection Expand entry

Contact tracking via QRoniton will be suspended from 20 March until further notice. We strongly recommend you use the federal government's Corona-Warn-App. If this is used by everyone, it is a very effective tool for breaking chains of infection at an early stage.

3. How can I get a workstation with access to the internet? Expand entry

In order to support students of our University in participating in online lectures, the number of study spaces with internet access has been extended.

4. Dining halls and cafeterias Expand entry

You can find out which dining halls and cafeterias are currently open on the website of the Studierendenwerk Thüringen. Only cashless payments by thoska are accepted.

5. Using the ThULB’s services Expand entry

The branch libraries of the ThULB are open. Wearing a mask is strongly recommended here as well. The designated hygiene and infection protection rules are to be observed.

Group study rooms and Carrels must be booked in advance. Workstations can be used both with and without reservation. Training courses and introductions to library use in presence form take place on a limited basis in compliance with the AHAL rules.

Further information are available on the website of the ThULB (German only).
