5 November 2020
On 30. October 2020 is the eighth Bavarian Infection Protection Ordinance (8. BayIfSMV) came into force and the hygiene concept of TH Aschaffenburg was adapted accordingly. The hygiene concept was developed on the following points:

In lecture halls and seminar rooms, laboratories and PC pools, students and lecturers are required to wear masks regardless of the incidence value.
There are no excursions and no university sports.

In the library there is a mask obligation if the distance is less than 1. 5m, the PCs are accessible again, the book return is possible via the book valve, the free-hand magazine is closed for public traffic

Service Points: If the 7-day incidence of 35 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants is exceeded or if it has been exceeded less than six days ago, a mouth-nose cover must be worn in publicly accessible areas in any case if the minimum distance of 1. 5 metres cannot be reliably met.

For meetings, interviews and trial lectures, the following applies: If the 7-day incidence of 35 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants is exceeded or has been exceeded less than six days ago, meetings should be limited to non-postponeable events and preferably use technical possibilities such as video or telephone conferences.
Masks must be worn in office and administrative premises if the distance of 1. 5m, despite the partition wall, cannot be respected.

23 October 2020
In Aschaffenburg, the 7-day incidence of 35 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants has now also been exceeded. Therefore, during the lecture, also in the seat, a mouth-nose cover should be applied. The same applies in rooms such as PC pools, meeting rooms, laboratories, etc.

16 October 2020
In Miltenberg, the 7-day incidence of 35 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants has already been exceeded. Therefore, a mouth-nose covering is required during the lecture, also on the seat. The same applies in rooms such as PC pools or meeting rooms, etc.

1 October 2020
For the winter semester, an individual hygiene concept was developed for the entire university, which is coordinated with the Aschaffenburg Health Department. On the traffic routes in the buildings of the TH AB there is an obligation for all to wear masks. In principle, a minimum distance of 1. 5 m must still be maintained between persons.

In order to be able to trace contacts accurately, a system has been developed that enables a person registration via the CampusCard. All persons are admitted per course. The data is stored in compliance with data protection and deleted after 4 weeks. If necessary, all contact persons can be identified and contacted by the Health Office. In order to be able to follow up the contact if necessary, we send the following urgent requests to you:

  • Bring your CampusCard to all courses, please.
  • Check your e-mail inbox provided by the university for new entries on a daily basis.
  • Check the self-service portal for your phone numbers stored with us and, if possible, enter your mobile phone number there.
     

The mensa/cafeteria is now also open again. The Mensa Aschaffenburg is operated by the Studentenwerk Würzburg and is a self-sufficient company in the buildings of TH Aschaffenburg. Therefore, the hygiene concepts and the concept for contact tracking differ. The library is also open again at the following times: Monday to Friday: 09:00 to 15:00. Due to the necessary protective measures, there is still limited capacity at individual workstations. On the website you will find information on the course of the library visit and the services offered by the library during the Corona crisis. Please note that group work in the library is still not allowed and organize your study groups in virtual study rooms via zoom.

Please observe the hygiene rules of TH Aschaffenburg in all rooms of the university. These are mainly based on the well-known rule:
distance | hygiene | everyday mask

We wish you a good start to the semester and stay healthy!

20 May 2020

Study and teaching: Courses from 20.4.2020 onwards will be offered digitally, not on campus or in Miltenberg. On 20.4.2020, the electives and optional courses will also start digitally. We are currently expecting that there will be no physical attendance during the summer semester until 10.7.2020. 

Exams: We are planning an amendment to the General Examination Regulations (APO) for the crisis situation, so that types of examinations can be specified in deviation from the currently valid examination regulations in order to offer fewer written examinations. These are likely to have to comply with hygiene and distancing rules to ensure safety for all. You will be informed in good time about the form and modalities of the examination, once the APO has been decided. To ensure that you do not suffer any disadvantage in this special situation, we advise you on such matters as extending deadlines, facilitating advance arrangements and additional repeat attempts. We are currently planning a three-week examination period starting on 11.7.2020.

In general: There will be no classroom sessions until 20 April. Until then there will be no excursions. In this respect, it is not the start of the semester that is being postponed, but the attendance of lectures. Catch-up dates for cancelled practice-related courses will be announced, but cannot take place before April 20th 

  1. The examination period is to remain unchanged. This means that the lecture period will not be extended into the future. Exception: Examinations in elective courses, mandatory elective courses, general scientific elective subjects and specialised elective modules will only take place in the last week of July.
  2. Bachelor and Master theses will continue to be supervised. In theses that have already been registered, the deadline continues to run. New theses can also be registered. The library remains open. 
  3. Lectures are expected to take place on the Friday before and Tuesday after Whitsun. There is no free bridging day on 22 May.
  4. The lecture contents of the first five weeks are to be recorded (without audience), conveyed as e-learning elements or other possibilities will be used to convey the lecture contents. Where available, existing e-learning elements can and should be used. Courses that cannot be recorded and for which e-learning is unsuitable (e.g. lab practicals) will be made up from 20 April onwards. More detailed information on this will follow. Moodle is to be the communication platform for communicating with the students during the first five weeks of the summer semester. Further information will follow.
  5. The period for viewing completed exams will not be extended. Individual appointments should be made with students who wish to see their exams. By making individual appointments, we are trying to avoid too many students having to wait outside the offices at the same time.
