In the winter semester 21/22, “as much presence as possible” is to take place at the HfK. Limited room capacity will be eliminated, bookings will be eliminated for (most) rooms.
Prerequisites: Vaccinated, recovered, or tested (3G). Ongoing information is still available at faq.hfk-bremen.de. For the announcement of the winter semester, see the letter from the rector dated 23.07.2021 (via mail).
The corona pandemic has a massive impact on all of our studies at the HfK. With low infection rates during the summer and a raising number of vaccinations a first number of courses and classes on campus are possible again. The faculties have released plans for the opening measures (possibly also closing measures):
- step-by-step plan for art and design faculty dated 04.05.2021
- step-by-step plan for music faculty dated 28.05.2021
Make your teachers aware of the current possibilities and your teaching and examination requirements!
Continue to use the hardship regulations, especially for practicing and for studio and workshop work!
The AStA takes a critical look at the measures, their consequences, and the impacts on our studies daily. We represent all students in the crisis team of the university administration and strive to be good contacts and intermediaries for all questions and problems, that necessarily develop when a university is upside down and in lockdown.
You can come to us about issues such as hardship cases, the semester ticket or visa issues. As an international student, not only is the International Office available to you; you can also turn to the International Students’ Committee.
Please send questions about exceptions and university-wide measures directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Reach out about issues in your degree program or department, as well as with hardship case petitions to your deanery at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
If you get stuck, contact us!

What do you guys do?! And what can we change?
The university administration established a crisis team in March 2020, in which members from the deanery, campus offices and the Student Services Office (Unit 1), staff council and the Students’ Union (AStA) are represented.
The crisis team currently meets weekly or biweekly via video conference. The AStA reports back to the Students’ Parliament regularly regarding the outcomes, and gladly accepts questions, requests, and issues for discussion in the crisis team.
Student network / “HoPo-Runde”
To form a better network in these exceptional times in which we cannot meet, an informal university politics session takes place monthly. All student councils and student members of the faculty council and academic senate are invited.
Committee work during the pandemic
The meetings of the AStA and StuRa take place currently (status March 2021) exclusively online. The AStA meets at least biweekly, the StuRa monthly, as usual. If you would like to participate, visit the committee calendar and check your emails: the invitation links will be sent there.
The “Experimentiersemester” 2020
The so-called “Experimentiersemester” announced by the university administration at the beginning of 2020 presented us with many challenges. To offer help to the students of the HfK, the AStA, in cooperation with the student crisis team, initiated a campaign to provide you with facts, information and support. You will find all the posts here.
