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 (back) 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:

  • present a proof of a negative corona-test, that is not older than 48 hours after testing


  • 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.

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)
