Dear students, dear staff and faculty, dear members of the university,

The coronavirus has reached the University of Jena. Admittedly there are only a few confirmed cases so far. But the number of infections will increase rapidly, also in our country and in our environment. Our goal is to do everything in our power to delay the spread of the virus in, order to protect those who are at higher risk and to ensure medical care for everyone. To achieve this, we must act quickly — especially since the majority of those infected experience no or only mild symptoms, disregard the rules of social distancing and thus contribute to the rapid spread of the virus.

There has never been a comparable situation before. We are therefore facing completely new challenges. Like other large public institutions, the University of Jena has cancelled events, postponed examinations for students and largely prevented public access. As far as possible, the university will switch to home work. The crisis committee of the universi-ty will make further decisions.

At present, we cannot yet estimate how long this crisis will last. The crisis management team is therefore working on a long-term basis for all decisions. However, looking at the situation in other countries where the novel coronavirus has been spreading for some time, we can assume that we will have to prepare ourselves for a longer period of time.

Not every question can be clarified immediately, many things have to be reorganised and decided on a daily basis. I would therefore ask you to be patient. Please understand that not every question you may have can be answered immediately. Please inform yourself regularly here. We update this page for you around the clock.

I also ask you for social cohesion, despite social distancing. We can only master a challenge like this together. Please show consideration for each other and support those who need help.
I thank you for your cooperation and wish you good health.

Yours, Walter Rosenthal

President of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena
Chair, Crisis Response Team

The concrete procedure for a quarantine will be determined by the public health department in each individual case. Recommendations may include staying at home, keeping distance from third parties, not sharing household items with third parties, etc.

10. Why doesn’t the University of Jena provide additional disinfectant dispensers? Show content

The University follows the recommendations of the Robert Koch Institute and the Federal Centre for Health Education on hand hygiene, according to which the use of hand sanitizers is usually unnecessary. Washing your hands regularly and thoroughly—with enough soap and for at least 20 seconds—will suffice.

What is important now is that hospitals and private practices keep enough disinfectants in stock. That is why the University currently does not provide additional disinfectant dispensers for non-vulnerable staff.

The soap dispensers in the University buildings are refilled at a regular basis. If you still come upon an empty dispenser, you can turn to the responsible caretaker [pdf 144KB].

FAQ for doctoral candidates and postdocs

1. In which way are academic procedures affected by the current situation? Show content

Oral examinations in the context of doctoral and habilitation procedures (disputations, colloquia, scientific lectures and talks) are currently not to be held. This applies initially until the start of the summer semester lecture period on 4 May 2020.

In urgent exceptional cases, they can be organised as video conferences or - in compliance with the hygiene requirements of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena - as mixed video and face-to-face events. In any case, the (university) public is currently to be excluded. Urgent exceptional cases can be, in particular, the imminent expiry of residence permits, the prohibited entry into Germany or the necessity of a doctorate / habilitation qualification for employment contracts or appointments.

The decision is made by the dean or vice-dean of the respective faculty at request of the person being examined. Since habilitation procedures require a broader involvement of the faculty, the use of video conferencing should only be considered in very rare and particularly urgent cases. The submission of dissertations in the ThULB is still possible. Please refer to the notes on the ThULB website.
