Hygiene Measures and Regulations for the Winter Semester 2021/22

The following regulations apply for the upcoming winter semester 2021/22

  • The so-called 3G rule applies for all courses (vaccinated, recovered, tested).
  • Wearing a mask is mandatory in all buildings and during courses because we will use 50 % of the seating capacities which means that the required minimum distance of 1.5 meters cannot be kept.
  • If the minimum distance can be observed and all students are checked according to the 3G rule (i.e. everyone is either fully vaccinated, recovered or tested), face masks can be taken off.
  • Teaching staff is permitted to remove the mask in the lecture hall/classroom if they keep a minimum distance of 1.5 m to others.
  • Students are required to use the LUCA app for registration and contact tracing (or fill out a contact tracing form). QR codes and forms are provided in all lecture halls/classrooms.
  • University staff will check students for compliance. If people do not comply with these rules, the university will excercise its right to ban these people from the building. All staff members with supervisory functions (Occupational Health and Safety, teaching staff, etc.) are authorized to do so.

Designing the future! Practice-oriented, scientific and international

Education and research, combining the strengths of universities of applied sciences (Fachhochschulen) and traditional universities. We offer our students eight career-focused bachelor and nine research-based master programs. Our junior scientists undertake research in cooperation with renowned universities, both at home and abroad: this strong international network benefits both students and scientists. Research here is both applied and fundamental, with a focus on special crops in Viticulture and Horticulture and their production and processing, linking these areas with Fresh Produce Logistics and Food Safety, Economics and Marketing. Other focus areas are in planning and design in Landscape Architecture, Landscape Construction and Nature Conservation. This variety and international outlook are characteristics of the Geisenheim Profile.

The topics on offer at the university; Cultivated Landscape, Beverages, Wine, Landscape itself, Horticulture, are reflected all around us here in the Rheingau...Prof. Dr. Hans Reiner Schultz, President
