COVID-19 Update

Due to the developments, the University of Salzburg stopped classroom teaching since 16 of March and switched to digital teaching formats. All other classroom events, lectures have also been cancelled. These measures are applicable for the whole summer semester.

  • Students who returned back home and continue exchange studies online, but don't come back to Salzburg physically, please deregister your residence in Salzburg.
  • Students considering returning to their home country now, should be aware of any travel warnings that may apply to the journey. Check home countries' authorities's websites to find latest news. It’s the home countries' responsibility to support their students in organising the return back home. 
  • Students are very welcome to stay in Salzburg. This happens on their own responsibility.

Note: Deregistration with the City of Salzburg is possible by email to meldeamt(at)stadt-salzburg.at by sending the completed registration form "Meldezettel" and an ID/passport copy.    

Please take the recommendations issued by the University of Salzburg Board into account and keep yourself informed by checking the homepage regularly https://www.uni-salzburg.at/index.php?id=41697&L=1&newsid=17658&b=52 

The following measures were decided upon:

  • It will no longer be possible to return to lecture halls and seminar rooms this summer semester. Exceptions will only be made in specific areas, such as certain laboratory tasks and some practical sports exercises.
  • Oral and commission board examinations will be available online from next week. A guideline on this will be published as soon as a regulation has been enacted by the Ministry of Education, Science and Research. Other Exams will be able to take place in university buildings in the coming weeks, but under very restricted conditions. We ask for your patience whilst we prepare the correct regulations for such examinations
