The university traffic light for FHS will be RED from tomorrow,with few exceptions! Contrary to the nationwide lockdown, which is valid until December 6th, 2020, the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences is extending its RED phase until 8 December 2020. Reason: since any changes to the traffic light commission will only be announced on Friday before or even at the weekend, there would be too little time for planning for 7 December. The 08.12.

Info Update, 02.11.2020

The "educational traffic light" remains on ORANGE for all our locations; From today's perspective, this should remain so for the whole of November. At the weekend there were also consultations with the Ministry of Science, the corresponding ordinance is now available. The same premise applies to all university measures as to all other measures taken by the federal government: The primary goal is to avoid unnecessary social contacts! Please also adhere to it, this is the only way we can continue to avoid a red light for our university.

Specifically, this means maintaining our operations in teaching, research and administration under the following conditions:

  • General MNS obligation: This mask obligation applies to all employees, external lecturers and students within buildings and rooms of the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences. This can be omitted for examinations if the minimum distance is at least 1.5 meters. For employees who sit alone in offices, there is also no general mask requirement. It is recommended that you always wear the MNS.
  • Lectures: courses (including small groups) must predominantly be carried out online. Only non-substitutable courses in small groups (max. 18 people) or exams that are not possible online can continue to be carried out on site while observing all known security measures.
  • Libraries: You can borrow and return books without prior notification during opening hours. It is not possible to stay longer in the library; the reading and research areas remain blocked. Please make more use of the online media in our databases.
  • Part-time studying: Part-time students and their lecturers who have to attend non-substitutable courses on site are allowed to return home after 8 p.m.
  • Excursions: are still not possible.
  • Business trips: Business trips abroad are still not possible; Domestic business trips and business trips are only possible in exceptional cases (unless otherwise feasible).
  • Home office: Where possible and sensible, home office is absolutely preferable, please organize this ("shift operation") for each organizational unit. There should really only be one person on site per room. 
  • Commuters / border traffic: The borders to and from Germany remain open for work and study traffic (bring a university of applied sciences ID card and possibly a timetable); the so-called small German corner is also passable.
  • Ventilation: Please observe the ventilation regulations and times marked in all rooms with windows. In rooms with automatic ventilation systems (that is, all rooms in which the windows cannot be opened), ventilation is automatic and permanent.
  • Canteen: Unfortunately, the common area on the ground floor of the Kuchl campus had to be closed. The cafeteria on Campus Urstein (FAGO) will be open from Monday to Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. until further notice (with pre-order).
  • Events: will not take place until further notice.
  • FHS sports program: will not take place until further notice.
