Campus

The practice of wearing protective masks has proven itself to be a highly effective precaution in containing the spread of the coronavirus. This is why all individuals on the university’s premises and in university buildings are required to wear an FFP2 mask.

You can find more information on library and university archive services, University Sports Center courses, and student cafeteria availability on this page.

Masks Required on Campus

On the basis of Berlin’s Third SARS-CoV-2 Infection Protection Measures Ordinance, Section 26.3, a mask must be worn in all enclosed spaces at Freie Universität Berlin, including the libraries.

You are not required to wear a mask while attending class, taking an exam, studying in the library, or working in a computer lab, if the following apply:

  • assigned seating and tracking are being used (for example, through the a.nwesen.de app or a similar system)
  • a distance of at least 1.5 meters between individuals can be maintained
  • all participants or attendees are either vaccinated, have fully recovered from a Covid-19 infection, or have recently tested negative for the disease (3G rule).
