Are you coming to Germany from a risk area to study?
Then please note the following rules that apply to you:
A risk area is a state or region outside the Federal Republic of Germany for which there is an increased risk of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus at the time of entry into the Federal Republic of Germany. You can find information on the risk areas on the website of the Robert Koch Institute.
Do you already have a dormitory at the Studentenwerk Halle? Then please contact your local accommodation agent to clarify all further measures.
Do you want to sign a lease for one of our dormitories for the first time?
The following facilities with a limited to-go offer are currently open for testing:
The following rules apply:
All other cafeterias and all café bars are not open until further notice.
Since all universities currently rely primarily on online teaching resources, there is no transfer volume limit for the entire data transfer to the university's own online teaching services. Details on the current regulation can be found under data network in the dormitories.
Due to the current situation and the associated restrictions on access to the university buildings in Halle and Merseburg, you may not be able to validate your student ID cards for the 2020 summer semester.
For this reason, the following rules apply to checks on MDV semester tickets from April 1st, 2020:
If the student ID card only has an imprint of the old winter semester 2019/2020 (imprint "valid until 31.03.2020"), the immatriculation certificate of the summer semester 2020 must be shown in parallel.
If the current semester is printed on the student ID card, ie if you have already validated your ID card, the check is carried out as usual. *
The presentation of the certificate of enrollment via the mobile phone is also permitted.
In addition, the student's official photo ID must always be shown if there is no photo on the student ID.
These regulations apply until the end of the summer semester 2020.
* The exact rule is: "If there is no photo on the student ID, then an official ID document with photo must be presented together with the student ID when checked."
The student ID cards of the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, the Merseburg University of Applied Sciences and the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle are all personalized with a photo of the student, so that in the event that the student ID card is validated as before and the imprint "valid until 30.09.2020 "is applied, no photo ID is required. Provided that the photo is still recognizable on the student ID card.

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.
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.
