Statement of Prof. Dr. Francesca Biagini (Vice President for International Affairs and Diversity)

Financial Assistance for international Students in case of Quarantine

New international students from Corona risk areas must stay in quarantine for 14 days after entering Bavaria: Entry regulation (EQV). An updated classification of the countries can be found here. Students who are affected can be financially assisted (in certain cases) in case of quarantine. This concerns the direct costs for quarantine (certain accommodation) and the necessary Corona test.

Students who are affected by this situation are welcome to contact the International Office of the LMU, contact: Mrs. Botheroyd-Hobohm,, by the end of November.

Please keep in mind that, in case of financial assistance, you will need to hand in the appropriate documents, as well as a supporting letter from your study coordinator, who needs to confirm your presents at the LMU.
