Information for first semester students


Welcome to Harz University!
We look forward to welcoming you at our locations in Wernigerode and Halberstadt.

Canteen, library, sports hall - all facilities of the Harz University are currently closed. The campus is empty, but that's a good thing. The start of the semester at Harz University has been postponed - as in all universities in Saxony-Anhalt - to April 20 to slow down the spread of the corona virus. Unfortunately, the summer semester cannot start as usual. Nevertheless, life at the university does not stand still; much is being done to ensure that at least online lectures can take place.

News on the current situation can always be found on our "Corona website".

On the following pages we have compiled the most important information you need for a successful start at Harz University. You can get a quick overview of your university: From IT services to central facilities (cafeteria, library,...) to leisure activities or important dates and events, you will find everything you need. Should you still miss information, please send us a short note to
