Back to Uni – Connecting and Studying on Campus

Finally (back) on campus – but how does that even work?

The COVID-19 pandemic changed the everyday life of students completely. From one day to the next, students no longer studied on campus but from home. Now it is finally possible to return to a more normal student life. 

Therefore, the subject groups, the Dean's Office and the departmental representatives of the Faculty of Social Sciences have developed offers to make it easier for students to return to campus and study together. The focus is bringing students into contact with each other, studying together and supporting them in their everyday university life and academic work.

I am delighted to welcome our students back to the campus of the A5 building. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on everyday university life, which has required a lot of strength and perseverance. Therefore, I would like to encourage you to take advantage of our additional offers in order to benefit from the personal exchange with your lecturers and fellow students that is now possible again.

Every Wednesday we deal with a topic related to studying, such as time and stress management or efficient exam preparation, and exchange tips and tricks about university life. 

The Lerncafé takes place each wednesday from 13:30 to 16:30

A semester schedule with all dates and topics can be found here. 

You can always find the current roomin the course in Portal 2 under parallel groups and dates.
