Information for Members of the University Regarding the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a global health emergency due to the spread of the novel coronavirus in China. The metropolitan area around Wuhan has been hardest hit by the outbreak, but other countries have since reported cases of infection.

Freie Universität Berlin will provide you with information here on the coronavirus outbreak and how it might affect your daily life at the university as an instructor, student, or employee.

We ask for your patience and understanding at this time, as there are still many questions to be answered. We will continue to update this website as new information comes in.


You can find answers to the most important questions under the FAQs.
