Corona measures: Information for visitors and academy members

The HGB is unfortunately closed.
Due to the continuing high number of infections in Saxony, the crisis team of the HGB has decided on further measures to deal with the Corona virus. The university will be closed to visitors until probably February, 28th 2021. At present, only lecturers and members of the administration and workshops have access to the building in order to ensure the emergency operation of the university. Diploma students and Meisterschüler students registered for examinations have access to their studios. The studios in Trufanowstraße may also be used - subject to strict compliance with hygiene and infection control measures. Other students will be granted access to the building in Wächterstraße from 18 January, who, as so-called hardship cases, urgently need to use the studios in the main building. The number is limited and evenly distributed among the degree programs. Only their own classrooms or studios may be used and entered.
In order to equalize attendance throughout the building, the opening hours will be extended from 8:00 to 18:00 at present to 8:00 to 20:00. To avoid unnecessary congestion at the entrance, there are also two entrances. The main entrance and the entrance via the courtyard at the coffee machine are open. Admission control will take place at both entrances. In addition, the HGB is obliged to track contacts and must have an overview of how many and which persons are in the building at any given time.
>>> It is therefore urgent that the current student ID card is deposited upon entry.
>>> Wearing a mouth-nose cover is still mandatory in the entire building. 

Furthermore, the following regulations will continue to apply during this time:
Since November, the BMBF has reinstated the Corona bridging aid for students in pandemic-related distress. Further information on this and other support measures for students can be found here.
