How the Hertie School is supporting our community during the pandemic

Keeping our community safe is our highest priority. As we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic together, the Hertie School has ensured to provide a safe campus as best as possible – in our teaching, in our on-site activities and in the way we support our students with their learning, student life and well-being.

Our hygiene rules and measures for daily operations are continually updated to reflect changing guidelines and regulations by local health authorities. Together, we all share the responsibility for keeping our community safe and healthy. Stay up-to-date by reviewing the FAQs regularly and by reading update emails sent by our Management.

Your safety comes first – and Student Life is here to help.  Reach out to the Student Life team, if you have questions about COVID-19 regulations or topics related to moving to Berlin, such as health insurance, residence permits and housing. Should you test positive for COVID-19, please send us an email and we will take care of the necessary next steps in cooperation with you and the Berlin Health Authorities.

Create a safe campus

  • 100% of our staff and almost 100% of all students have been vaccinated. To attend classes in person, students should be vaccinated. 

  • All seminar and meeting rooms as well as public spaces like our cafeteria and library are equipped with state of the art air filters

  • FFP2 masks are recommended in all public Hertie School spaces including seminar rooms. Masks are recommended to be worn also in seminars and lectures.

  • Upon preference, students, researchers and staff can still activate the Corona Warn App and and check-in via the Corona Warn App for contact tracing.
