While courses at the KU could only be held online during the summer semester, the winter semester will see more life on campus again: Based on a comprehensive Hygiene Concept, the KU wants to offer its students as much face-to-face teaching as possible. First-year students, in particular, should be given the opportunity to get to know their new university not only virtually but also on site. It is planned that about half of the approximately 2,000 courses will take place in sufficiently large rooms with a minimum distance of 1.5 meters between people. There will also be hybrid courses that combine digital formats and on-campus phases. Lectures and courses with many participants will continue to take place online. Students can find out in which form the individual courses are offered in the campus management system KU.campus.
The University Library also returns to on-campus operations with special regulations. However, the number of users who may be in the reading rooms at the same time is limited. For ventilation and cleaning, the libraries are closed for one hour every day. The KU Computer Center opens one PC pool each at both locations. A face mask must be worn in KU buildings, which can be taken off at your seat or workplace. The University Management urgently appeals to all KU members: "We all want the KU to remain a place of teaching and research that can even be experienced under these tense conditions. This can only succeed if everyone acts responsibly and takes the hygiene regulations seriously.”
The KU offers support as you set out into this special winter semester with numerous orientation events for first semester students. More information is available here.
The University Management urgently asks all students, employees and guests at the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt to observe the following hygiene measures:
In the winter semester, courses are offered in three formats: on campus, online and hybrid/blended learning.
All courses are published in advance in the campus management system KU.Campus. Here, you will also find information on whether the course takes place on campus, online or in a hybrid format.
The KU attaches great importance to providing the best possible hygiene conditions. For this reason, only fewer rooms with comparatively low total capacity are available this semester. We therefore ask for your understanding that the publication of events will take place at a later date than usual.
In this case, the teaching and research practice and administration operations must be adjusted. Stricter restrictions may have to be introduced again. This means that courses would again be held exclusively online. In order to avoid this, the KU has developed a comprehensive Hygiene Concept and asks employees and students to comply with the measures.
Depending on the size of the room, the number of participants is limited. More detailed information can be found in the respective course entries on KU.Campus. In many seminar rooms and lecture halls, the seats that may be used are marked – please adhere to the room concept.
Currently, opening hours of the canteen and cafeteria are also limited. For daily updates on the current opening hours, please visit the websites of the Eichstätt and Ingolstadt canteens. Prior to eating at the canteen, you have to reserve a seat online (www.werkswelt.de). Guests may only use the marked seats. When walking around the dining halls, guests must wear a face mask. The regulations regarding minimum distance and hygiene rules must also be observed in the canteen and cafeteria. When visiting the cafeteria, guests must give their name and phone number to enable the cafeteria management to identify possible contact persons in case of an infection.
The KU Examinations Office offers a comprehensive overview for all students that also answers FAQ regarding examinations during corona.
University Library stocks can be used again under normal conditions and with the usual loan periods. This applies to the reference collection in the reading rooms (use in the reading room as well as night and weekend lending) as well as to books borrowed from the closed stacks and those obtained via inter-library loan.
