Corona Pandemic

What effects does the corona pandemic have on the offers and services of your Studentenwerk?

Return from a risk area to the dormitory and to the university

Are you coming from a risk area to study?

Then please note the following rules that apply to you:

  • Persons entering the state of Saxony-Anhalt from a risk area are obliged in accordance with the Quarantine Ordinance:
  • go straight to their own home or other suitable accommodation immediately after entering the country and to continuously seclude themselves there for a period of 14 days after their entry.

A risk area is a state or region for which there is an increased risk of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus at the time of arrival or entry into the Federal Republic of Germany. You can find information on the risk areas on the website of the Robert Koch Institute.

  1. Do you already have a dormitory at the Studentenwerk Halle? Then please contact your local accommodation agent to clarify all further measures.

  2. Do you want to sign a lease for one of our dormitories for the first time?

  • Then you must have a medical certificate in German or English, which confirms that there is no evidence of an infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
  • The medical certificate must be based on a molecular biological test for the presence of an infection with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which was carried out in a member state of the European Union or another state published by the Robert Koch Institute and at most 48 hours before arrival or entry in the Federal Republic of Germany has been made.
  • The test can also be taken after arrival at the airport.
  • Or you can provide proof that you have been in quarantine for 14 days prior to entry.
  • Important: You cannot conclude a rental contract without a test or proof of quarantine.

From November 2nd, the following applies in the canteens and café bars:

  • we provide again with a limited lunch offer (2 to a maximum of 3 dishes)
  • all dishes are only sold to-go

  • the routing from the entrance to the exit must be observed in all facilities
  • the cafebars in the Heide- and Weinbergmensa as well as on the Steintorcampus will remain open for the time being; here, too, only food and drinks to-go can be purchased that are consumed outside the facilities, at a distance of at least 50 m from the place of delivery

Our day care centers are open in regular operation again:

Even in regular operation, the facility-specific hygiene concepts apply. This applies in particular to

  • compliance with the distance rules,
  • following the new routes through the daycare as well as
  • as little or as short contact as possible in the daycare when bringing and fetching the children.


The short-time childcare of your Studentenwerk Halle

will provide childcare on an individual basis and with prior reservation only.


Currently the regular BAföG opening and consulting times are valid again. For BAföG consultations in Halle (Saale) and Merseburg, please use the online appointment calendar and book your consultation appointment easily, securely, conveniently and 24/7.

Due to the current pandemic-related situation, we would like to ask you before you make your reservation of your consultation appointment, to check whether a personal consultation on site at the BAföG-Amt is necessary or whether your questions can also be clarified by telephone. Your clerks will be happy to help you with this.
Therefore, please contact us by phone before making an appointment or appearing on site.

The respective responsibility of the clerks depends on the first letters of your surname. Responsible are on:

update request

The income of my parents has changed so much because of the corona virus that they can no longer support me financially or to the usual extent. What can I do? 

You can apply for BAföG or, if you already have BAföG, apply for an update to get a higher BAföG rate in the current year.

Normally, the parents' income from the penultimate calendar year is taken into account when calculating the BAföG. If parents lose part of their income now, for example due to short-time working due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the BAföG office can take this into account.

If you are already receiving BAföG, you will submit an update request on which the parents or parents affected by the income reduction enter their income information in the calendar years in which the approval period is located. The application must be signed by you and your parents or the parent concerned. You can find the update request here (Form 7).

If you have not yet received a BAföG, but your parents' income has now fallen sharply, you may be entitled to a BAföG. So it can be worthwhile to submit an application. Again, in addition to the normal request, the update request must be made. You can find all application forms here . 

Attention: Funding is provisional! After the end of the approval period, evidence of the parents' actual income must be presented. Then the funding amount is recalculated. If income is too low in the update request, it can be reclaimed.

Further information is available here and from the Office for Training Promotion at the Studentenwerk Halle: bafoeg(at)


corona overview

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared global coronavirus infections a pandemic. The federal authority responsible for infectious diseases and infection protection in Germany, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), provides information on its website about the current situation, risk assessment and maintains a detailed FAQ that is constantly updated and expanded.
