Information regarding the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2): Teaching suspended until further notice

On March 10, 2020, the Bavarian State Ministry for Science and Art ordered the immediate cessation of teaching in attendance at Bavarian universities due to the spread of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.

Munich, March 10, 2020

Here the Faculty of Physics informs about current developments regarding the corona virus (SARS-CoV-2). Please see this page regularly for current information.


Due to the decision of the Bavarian Ministry of State of March 10, 2020, teaching at the Faculty of Physics will be completely suspended with immediate effect and until further notice. This concerns e.g. current courses, tutorials, block seminars and practical courses. Furthermore, all CIP pools remain closed.

All exams planned for March 2020 have also been cancelled.

Oral examinations (e.g. bachelor final examination, docotral examination) are possible in urgent cases and under strict regulations. These include that all participants must agree and that the usual hygienic measures are followed.

Doctoral examinations should take place in rooms that ensure a generous distance between the participants. Participants returning from trips to risk areas or who have had contact with persons who have returned from a risk area should not take part in the examination. Further information on doctoral examinations can be found on the website of doctoral information

Due to the very dynamic development it is not yet possible to estimate the schedule for exams and the summer term 2020. We will inform you as soon as we know more details.

We make every effort to keep the consequences of cancelled exams on the success of your studies as low as possible. Further information on examination matters can be found on the website of the physics examination office.
