University life during the summer 2021

The University of the Applied Arts Vienna is looking to provide the best possible combination of safety and openness in everyday university life for all students, employees and visitors.
In this spirit, all measures are aimed at upholding in-person teaching as well as on-site research activities to the greatest possible extent while at the same time keeping the risk of infection at Angewandte as low as possible.
Special attention is being paid here to artistic and practical teaching, since doing these remotely would entail especially severe limitations.
During summer 2021, the Angewandte is opening its doors again. During the time when there are no teaching classes, there can be unrestricted use of the premises provided the general ruling „3 G“ is always observed: Persons on the premises must be either tested, or recovered from infection, or vaccinated („Getestet /Genesen /Geimpft").  Wearing a mouth-nose protection is mandatory in public spaces and rooms. You will find the regulations for summer 2021 (5 July to 30 September 2021) here

The Rectorate will inform about any changes immediately via mailings to all university members.
