University operations will resume tomorrow!

03. November 2020
Dear university members,
As the official recommendation to avoid the city center is no longer upheld, the Angewandte will resume 'regular' university operations Wed, November 4, 2020, using the ORANGE operating scenario
Accordingly, the university buildings will be open from 8am to 8pm. All information on the current operating scenario can be found at  As in the summer semester, information on the changeover to home office and offers related to distance learning can be found at
I know how difficult it is to find and maintain the full concentration necessary for working in this double crisis and exceptional situation. Nevertheless, I am sure that in this situation it is especially important to find a clear and continuous working process - no matter whether it is studying, teaching and researching or working in planning, service and administration. I ask the teachers in relation to their students and the supervisors of the employees at the Angewandte to take this - also mentally - difficult situation into consideration. 
The fact that we mutually support each other in order to jointly make the positive power of the Angewandte productive for each and every individual as well as for our society is what makes the Angewandte special. 
And even if it may sound somewhat pathetic: We will not let this positive attitude and the courage to do so be taken away from us by a virus or a terrorist. 
With best regards
Gerald Bast
