Help for art and design students from Ukraine

Art and design students from Ukraine are welcome at Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design. In order to build a creative bridge, we have enabled a fluent transition for refugee students. We are open to working out individual solutions together which are adapted to the respective situation of Ukrainian students and which allow them to continue their artistic and design work as quickly as possible. This is carried out in direct consultation with the responsible professors. The Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design welcomes the helpfulness, solidarity and participation of its students, teachers and staff.

Dear members of the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts,

Since Thursday 14 May, the library can be used again by members of the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts. Initially, this will only take place in the form of a “pick-up library”. Books and media must be ordered by e-mail from the library and can then be collected on site during opening hours from Monday to Friday between 11 am and 1 pm.
Orders received by the library by 10:00 a.m. can be collected on the same day from 11:00 a.m. onwards. Orders received after 10:00 a.m. can be collected from 11:00 a.m. on the following day.
They will be returned to boxes provided in the corridor outside the library. Access to the building is controlled by student assistants.
Access is only possible with mouth and nose protection and please make use of the hand disinfection facilities provided. The hygiene concept of the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts can be viewed here.
Please observe a strict “traffic regulation” in the building itself:
Access through the main entrance on the side, ascent exclusively in the lift, follow the markings on the floor, descent exclusively through the staircase.
