Covid-19 information

Due to current corona situation, the Montanuniversitaet Leoben has decided to change the internal traffic light color to YELLOW as of March 7th, 2022.

This means that the main gates of the Montanuniversitaet Leoben are basically open for students as well as guests (external persons). However, a visit to the chair AVAW is please only possible after prior arrangement with the respective chair staff (possibly home office). A 3G certificate and the permanent wearing of an FFP2 mask are required for a visit. ATTENTION: Only vaccines approved in the EU will be accepted.

Party traffic is possible again.

The majority of the employees of our chair AVAW continue to be in home work. Therefore, most of the employees can only be reached by mail or by phone.

The secretary's office of our chair AVAW is regularly staffed and you can meet us physically on site again.
