Information about the corona virus and the behavior of the university

In view of the proliferation of the new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), we request that all OVGU employees to pay special attention, to observe the hygiene regulations and to act responsibly towards each other. On this page we have compiled important information for you and ask you to observe the service instructions and to inform yourself here regularly about changes.


Hotline for suspected cases

For suspected cases, University Medicine has set up a hotline in German and English: +49 (0)391 67 1 7799. This is not a general advice hotline.


Due to the current risk of infection and the lower number of employees and students present, the entrance doors of the buildings on the campus of the University of Magdeburg are locked all day. Employees will still have access to their service building with their transponder.

Building 6 is an exception for the time being, which means that the validation station for the student chip card is accessible.



According to the academic year schedule, the summer semester begins on April 1, 2020, with the exception of the attendance courses, which will not take place until at least April 20, 2020.

In the LSF students will find as usual all courses offered for their study programs in the summer semester. Enrollment in these courses must be completed by the enrollment deadline - usually April 6, 2020. The format of the course depends on various factors.



With the AG E-Learning, a group of teachers has existed for a long time that is intensively involved in the implementation of digital teaching offers. In addition, since last week, university members from the various departments have been working on the compilation of further tips, instructions, best-practice examples and much more.

The following links provide teachers with helpful information on the implementation of digital courses. The pages of the university are constantly being expanded.
