Information about the corona virus and the behavior of the university

In view of the proliferation of the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), we request that all OVGU employees to pay special attention, to observe the hygiene regulations and to act responsibly towards each other. On this page we have compiled important information for you and ask you to observe the service instructions and to inform yourself here regularly about changes.

Hotline for suspected cases

For suspected cases, University Medicine has set up a hotline in German and English: +49 (0)391 67 1 7799. This is not a general advice hotline.

To evaluate the current infection situation in Magdeburg and the resulting actions for the university, a step-by-step plan with five levels is in effect. In addition to the hygiene concept, the graduated plan defines measures for all members of the university and for guests on campus.

Currently, level 0 applies at the University of Magdeburg.


With the start of the summer semester, the University of Magdeburg returns to normal operations. The corona restrictions, some of which are still in place, will be lifted at the end of the winter semester. Further information can be found in the rector's mail as well as in the current service instruction.
