State of exceptional circumstances in the Rommel
Due to the current pandemic, which caused our government to declare an emergency, Rommelwood e.V. and the home management are also taking measures to protect the residents. This may represent deprivation of many kinds, whether it’s lunch in the cafeteria or a board game evening.
Please don’t despair and keep calm! Our sanity brought us to university and that is exactly what will lead us out of this crisis. If we follow the recommendations of the medical experts, we will avert worse things and can certainly prevent the virus from spreading all over the country.
Please do not ignore the warnings and take care of yourself, your neighbors and roommates.
Please heed the hygiene concept
Please respect the mask requirement in all buildings of the Rommel!
Cancellation of the caretaker’s office hours
The caretaker's office hour will not take place until further notice. Please call them during their office hours on working day between 1:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. Their phone numbers are here.
Closing of the common areas and the bar
All common rooms and study rooms are temporarily closed to prevent meetings. The only exception is the cinema (red common room) which is open on Thuesdays. Please heed the hygiene concept of the Rommel.
Measures related to internet supply
Cancellation of the consultation hours
The consultation hours for problems with the Internet connection will no longer take place until further notice. If you need help please see the instructions on the website of the network team.
Cancellation of the Network team meetings
The Network team meeting will no longer take place as presence event. For participation in a possible online session, observe the note on the website of the network team.
Suspension of the traffic limit
The network team has decided to lift the limit on Internet traffic for the duration of the emergency. This means that you will no longer be throttled regardless of your download volume. The network team is confident that you will not use this to open a file sharing server and wishes you good entertainment.
Measures of the board
Termpay to be paid by bank transfer
Please pay the membership (and internet) fee of the Rommelwood e.V. by bank transfer instead of throwing cash into your user advisors post box.
All info how to pay can be found here (rommelwood.de/vereinsbeitrag).
Do not participate in parties / meetings
Please don't be reckless and put yourself and others in danger by attending wild parties or even medium-sized gatherings these days. Reduce your social "on-site" contacts as far as possible.
If you have an idea how we can prepare ourselves better or how we can relax (in) this situation and make it a bit more bearable for everyone, write to the Board . We are happy to support the organization of online parties and gaming sessions.
Measures of the housing managers (Heimleitung)
When you are in quarantine and need help with everyday errands, you can call upon the housing management who will find a solution together with you. Simply write them a mail.
Cancellation of the dorm managers consultation hour (Heimleitersprechstunde)
The consultation hour of the dorm manager(s) will no longer take place until further notice. If you need help please write an email to the dorm managers (Heimleitung).
Notes of the Studentenwerk
Quarantine report to the Studentenwerk
Please answer the following questions:
- Is it a voluntary and preventive or an officially prescribed quarantine?
- In case of officially prescribed quarantine: When will the decree end?
- Was a test conducted? If yes: When? If you have already received a result: Is it Positive or Negative?
No on-site service for housing service
The office of the WohnService of the Studentenwerk remains closed for “customer traffic”. Please contact them by phone or e-mail.
Unused water pipes pose health risks
The Studentenwerk points out that pathogens can accumulate in water pipes that have not been used for some time. It recommends the following:
"... flush the drinking water installations of the affected buildings regularly and extensively / intensively at least every 72 hours. Please make sure that this is organised! ..."
Don’t lose your head! We’ll get through this together!
