Containing the spread of COVID-19 at Freie Universität
Freie Universität Berlin, together with other higher education institutions, supports the large scale efforts currently being taken in society to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus. We can do this by limiting social contact with others and thus reduce the risk of infection. This has far-reaching consequences for teaching, studying, research, and administrative work. On this website, we will continue to inform university members about the measures that our university is taking to manage the incredible challenges we are facing.
