Please check the  university’s website and intranet pages regularly for information about the situation on campus. Please also be sure to read the emails sent to your university email account about this issue from the university.


The following are general recommendations:

  • Masks are recommended, if the minimum physical distance of 1.5 metres cannot be maintained. 
  • Do not come to campus if you are ill. 
  • Maintain physical distance and follow the general hygiene measures. 
  • Ventilate rooms regularly. 



Schedule and deadlines

  • All important dates and deadlines for the winter semester are available in the semester schedule.

Information about standard programme duration (“Individuellen Regelstudienzeit” IRSZ):

  • Your individual standard programme duration has been officially extended one semester, if you were enrolled in one of the preceding semesters (SoSe 2020, WiSe 20/21, SoSe 2021, WiSe 21/22) and not on leave of absence (Art. 99 (2) BayHschG). For example, if a student began their programme in winter semester 21/22, their individual standard programme duration has been increased by one semester. Students who began their programme in SoSe 2021 and were not yet on leave of absence have received two additional semesters. Students who were enrolled at university and not on leave of absence in WiSe 20/21, SoSe 2021, and WiSe 21/22 the standard programme duration for their studies has been extended three semesters. For students who were enrolled at university and not on leave of absence since summer semester 2020, the standard programme duration for their studies has been extended four semesters, accordingly.

  • For statistical purposes, however, the number of semesters (“Fachsemester”) must be increased, even if the study semesters in SoSe 20, WiSe 20/21, SoSe 21, and WiSe 21/22 are not counted, as stipulated in Art. 99 (1) BayHSchG. This stipulation will be implemented by extending the deadlines and regular schedules in accord with the Terms of the Special Regulations to the APO .
