How the Hertie School is supporting our community during the pandemic

Keeping our community safe has always been our highest priority. In navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hertie School has always aimed to provide as safe a campus 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 of 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.

Please note that, as of 13th February 2023, there are no more COVID-19-related restrictions in the state of Berlin; accordingly, there is no mandatory quarantine requirement if you test positive for COVID-19. However, we strongly recommend getting tested if you exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19 and that, if you test positive, you stay at home until you have received a negative result.
