The winter semester is about to start and corona infections are on the rise. But, unlike during the previous three semesters, there is enough vaccine now. With a vaccination, we can all protect ourselves and the people around us.

Hence, the University of Art and Design Linz will start the new semester on 1 October 2021 with regular classes (physical attendance).

Highly motivated, we are returning to our university and looking forward to allowing unrestricted, diverse studies.

We want to experience the university as a place of lively exchange, of teaching and learning together. For this reason, we have decided to introduce ’3G’ regulations for all university members and visitors. We will start the new semester vaccinated, recovered or tested.

Before the start of the semester, we appeal to all unvaccinated university members to get a vaccination as soon as possible. The sooner you are immunised, the safer we can all start the new semester. In addition to existing vaccination programmes (Österreich impft - Land Oberösterreich, POP-UP Impfstrasse an der JKU), you can get vaccinated at Domgasse on 4 October. Vaccinated students will be able to use workshops and studios 24/7. You access card will be activated after you have produced a vaccination certificate.

All necessary information on the regulations currently in effect, as well as upcoming changes beginning 1 October 2021, are listed on this page.

We look forward to seeing you again at the university and wish you a colourful, inspiring and successful academic year 2021/22.

The Rectorate and the ÖH of the University of Art and Design Linz would like to ask all students who haven't done so yet: Please get vaccinated.

Based on the current situation, the public health authority decides which traffic light phase is applicable for the districts of Linz and Vienna (IFK). In justified cases, the University of Art and Design Linz may decide to apply a stricter traffic light status.

Traffic light phases currently valid for the places of residence of university members are not applicable.

Lecturers from countries for which the government has issued a travel warning are required to consult the HR department concerning distance teaching and social insurance law.

The currently applicable traffic light status is announced through the university’s channels of communication (website, newsletter).
