Coronavirus situation at the UDK Berlin

Here you will find all important updates and immediate measures from UdK Berlin and Asta UdK. 

Emergency operation of the UdK due to the Covid-19 pandemic 

The meetings are held hybrid (digitally and in person) by AStA (in the AStA-Raum 9D Hardenbergstr 33), StuPa and FSRK. The exact procedures are currently being worked out, but we will inform you as soon as possible about the further procedure.

Social emergency aid

We are currently accepting the application for social emergency aid by e-mail. You can download and save it, then you can fill out the PDF file digitally. However, you still need to print out the application, sign it and send it to us as SCAN PER MAIL. 

Emergency contacts for mental stress during corona measures

A list of emergency contacts and advice centres you can turn to if you need help and support yourself or for others.

FAQs for students and prospective students in times of pandemic

The Office of Student Affairs has created a tile with FAQs for students and prospective students in times of the pandemic. The site is to be understood as "work in progress", i.e. it will be continuously updated, expanded and supplemented. 

We will keep you up to date!

The AStA of the UdK Berlin supports the request of this open letter. Especially in the artistic-practical area, the restrictions for students due to the closure of the university buildings are serious - painters and sculptors have no studio, musicians no rehearsal rooms, all lack access to workshops, etc. We think it is right to experiment more with digital forms of artistic creation; however, a regular evaluation of the semester puts students at the UdK Berlin at a particular disadvantage, as artistic achievements cannot be provided or can only be provided to a very limited extent, and it particularly affects those who lack suitable identification possibilities due to their financial and social situation.

Semester tickets from WS 19/20 will be still accepted

21.03.20 • admin_asta • Corona

VBB semester tickets for the winter semester 2019/20, which expire on 31.03.2020, will still be accepted as tickets for the use of public transport. The regulation is valid until 30.04.2020. The condition is that a certificate of enrollment for the summer semester 2020 can be presented at the same time.

For first-year students in summer semester 2020 who have not received or will not receive a VBB semester ticket from the university, we cannot offer a solution at the moment. We assume that in the near future there will be no travel occasions for this group of persons. At most universities there are no more reference lectures and refectories, libraries and other public areas are no longer accessible. Therefore we have to point out that all first-year students* without a valid semester ticket have to buy a ticket at the travel event. A refund for these purchased tickets is not yet provided for, certificates of enrolment are not accepted as replacement tickets.

If VBB-Semestertickets cannot be replaced in case of loss, a ticket must be bought at the occasion of the journey. A reimbursement for these purchased tickets is not intended so far, matriculation certificates alone are not recognized as replacement ticket.

This regulation has been made until 30.04.2020. The situation will be reassessed in mid-April 2020. We will then inform you again.
