With the new regulations of the federal government to fight the Corona pandemic, the 3G regulation at the workplace will be introduced at the University of Magdeburg for all employees and students. Detailed information on the implementation as well as information on testing options, the OVGU passport and home office options can be found in the current administrative instruction. In addition, the different procedures for quarantine due to a positive test or as a contact person are also explained.


The start of the winter semester 2021/22 is now one month behind us. This is reason enough for me to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all students, lecturers and staff who have contributed to making this unusual start to the semester possible or easier, especially for our first-year students. It really gives us great pleasure to see you, dear students, on campus again - with due caution and 3G and hygiene rules, but in personal exchange and direct dialogue.
