Updates on the Corona Situation

Health management at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences includes informing students and staff about measures and restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic. The most important information and sources of information are summarised here. Please update yourself on a regular basis about any new coronavirus guidelines from the Baden-Württemberg government which apply as of the winter semester 2022/2023.

This page is continually updated. Last update: 26 July 2022

Please note: the content on this page is an English translation of the German Corona page. Only the German page, as well as the regulations of the Corona Statutes from 08 July 2021, are legally binding.

Current regulations

The Coronavirus Regulations University Operation expired on 2 April 2022. This allows the teaching at Esslingen to take place face-to-face without restriction. The general Coronavirus Regulations of the State of Baden-Württemberg thus apply.

The Corona Task Force would like to draw your attention to several recommendations for working and studying at the university in general:

  • When you suspect you have contracted coronavirus or when you have symptoms of the illness, you may not enter the university buildings. This likewise applies when you are subject to mandatory quarantine. When symptoms appear while you are at work or in a lecture, you are requested to go home immediately. To clarify whether you have a coronavirus infection, please contact your own doctor.
  • The current statutory regulations no longer require a mouth&nose covering (mandatory face mask) to be worn at the university. Everyone can decide for themself whether to wear a mask, of course. Nevertheless, Esslingen agrees with the recommendation of the state government that people continue to wear a mask in publicly accessible indoor spaces and rooms (especially when it is not possible to maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 metres).
  • Furthermore, the general hygiene rules (regular ventilation, hand washing, disinfection etc.) apply.
  • Covid-19 testing centres run by an external provider are located on all three campuses. Please use them when necessary.

Please send any questions you may have per email directly to Task Force Corona.

Questions about how the teaching will be organised

Will there be any hybrid classes?

Some seminar rooms and lecture theatres have the technical equipment needed for hybrid teaching. However, data protection provisions mean that only certain teaching formats can be offered at the moment. This means that this possibility will be used only in specific cases. Your faculty will tell you whether this applies to your classes.
