The Meeting Room allows simultaneous registration of up to 300 participants. All you need to do is register for free at and then log in during the consultation hours.

Depending on the current situation, we anticipate the shift of important terms as follows:

  • The summer semester 2019/2020 will be extended until 12 June 2020
  • The deadline for completing student responsibilities for non-graduates is extended until 15 September 2020
  • The examination period will be extended until the deadline for completing student responsibilities i.e. 15 September 2020
  • Specific deadlines are within the competence of individual departments; in the event of a prolonged emergency state it will be necessary to increase the student capacity in the second term in August/September

The UP Rectorate now discusses the possibilities and rules for conducting online exams. We consider this option as an extension of classical examination especially in cases where it is necessary in the current emergency state.

On this website, the UP Library provides information on which resources can be studied online. The site is continuously updated as the library gains access to new resources for you.

Students (including PhD students) who are not university employees and have only student status are not allowed to enter on the faculty premises.
