In order to protect our students and staff and to counteract a possible spread of the corona virus, no classroom teaching will take place at the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences as from Wednesday, 11th March 2020 until further notice. However, despite this measure, teaching will be continuing as far as possible via “home-learning”
At the FH OÖ Campus Steyr, the library and the FH II campus building together with all lecture halls, seminar rooms and computer rooms are closed to the public.

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel our Open Day on Friday March 20th. Arranged campus visits and taster days such as 1day@fh cannot take place until further notice. Should you have any questions, please send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org or. email@example.com
Attendance: Due to a directive from the Federal Ministry of Health, Science and Research and in order to prevent a possible spread of the corona virus, no attendance lectures will be held at the FH OÖ as from Wednesday March 11th 2020 until further notice. The respective programme directors/ lectures will contact you promptly in order to inform you about how the planned courses can be held. For the latest information we ask all students to check their emails, ILIAS and LEVIS regularly.
Examinations (including resits)
The decision as to whether and to what extent examinations (and resits) are held is at the discretion of the degree programme and will be agreed individually with the examinees. Generally it can be said that examinations can only take place in very small groups in the sense of “social distancing“. The aim is to avoid any negative impacts on the course of study or on the duration of studies in as far as this is possible. The option of not participating in examinations in very small groups is possible for students without their suffering any legal consequences. Should this be the case then the examination can take place at a later date. Please contact the respective office of your course programme to cancel your registration.
Due to the corona virus situation, the library on the Steyr campus will be closed to the public as from 2 pm on Wednesday March 11th until further notice.
For the duration of the temporary closure of the library we are offering our students an extended service. For more information go to https://www.fh-ooe.at/campus-steyr/studieren/bibliothek/
