Regulations at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (June 2022)

From 4 June 2022, the internal COVID-19 regulations were lifted at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Visitors, staff and students do not have to wear a mask in HU buildings. It is however recommended to do so if a minimum distance of 1.5 m cannot be maintained or if persons stay together in a room for a longer period. We therefore ask that you wear a mask while indoors for the duration of the conference. 

The university has a test center, located in the building at Dorotheenstraße 24, 10117 Berlin. There you can obtain a free lateral flow test (called ‘Kostenloser Bürgertest’ on the link below). It is best to register and make an appointment online before visiting:
