Learning spaces and CIP-Pools

Learning spaces and computer rooms

In order to allow students at FAU to continue with their self-study even under the current circumstances, learning spaces will be opened up to students during the lecture period. The computer rooms (CIP pools) will also be partially open for use, provided coronavirus hygiene regulations are observed.

Opening hours from 16 December

Computer rooms and study spaces will remain open until further notice, in order to support those students who depend on these facilities. However, we would urge you to stay at home as far as possible and only use this option as a last resort. You must record your contact details and comply at all times with the currently valid physical distancing and hygiene guidance when on university premises.

Study areas at the University Library

The reading rooms in the central University Library and the branch library for law are open. Spaces in study areas must be reserved via this website: https://reservierung.ub.fau.de. Study areas in branch libraries can be used from 12 April onwards. Please speak to the person in charge, who will show you to a free desk.

FFP2 masks must be worn.

Observe hygiene guidelines

All current hygiene guidelines and social distancing rules must be strictly observed when using the learning spaces 

  • You must register via Darfichrein when you take a seat in order to allow your contact details to be tracked.
  • The furniture may not be moved and the allocated seating plan may not be amended in any way.
  • Please comply with hygiene guidelines and social distancing rules at all times and refrain from sitting close to others in work/study groups.
  • It is essential that you ventilate the room regularly.
  • You must not exceed the permitted number of people.
  • The rooms are available during the regular opening hours of the building or during the allocated times and must be left clean and tidy (remember to switch off all lights and shut the doors and windows when you leave).

In addition to this page, there is a list of printing facilities that can be used to print documents using mobile devices via FAU’s WiFi.
