From May 5, 2021, the university library will reopen to the public on a limited basis. However, a prerequisite for this is a negative daily Corona rapid test. There are also important changes for the testing center on the main campus. Students can now use this without restriction.


With the publication of the new hygiene concept of Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, new hygiene measures will also apply on campus from 6 April 2021. We would like to point out to all university members and guests that these regulations must be observed. Below you will find an overview of the changes.
