No, sorry, for sanitary reasons all offices on the campus are closed. Online-reservations are not possible at the moment. Please check if the necessary literature is accessible online. The University Library endeavours to enlarge the offer of e-books. Various databases are made accessible from outside the campus step by step. For further information please visit the library website ub.uni-graz.at.
I need to return books. What can I do?
The deadline for books to be returned has been enlarged to April 22nd. This applies to all libraries of the university as well as to books from interlibrary loan. If you have to return your books very urgently because you are leaving Graz, you can put them into the return boxes near the RESOWI library. But please bear in mind that the campus may be entered in cases of emergency only!
Can I still take my final exam?
All face-to-face exams are cancelled without exception. Please contact your examiner to arrange an online-exam, e. g. via Skype for Business.
Where can I find material for my classes on the Internet?
Please contact your teachers for further information and check your e-mails.
I need to do research in a laboratory for my thesis. Am I still allowed to do that?
No. All buildings on campus are closed, for students as well as for staff.
What happens if I can't finish my studies owing to the present restrictions by April 30th?
Please pay in the tuition fees and/or the membership fee for the Austrian Union of Students. If you manage to complete your studies in time, you can apply for a reimbursement of your payments. You find detailed information on the website of the Department of Academic Affairs.
