Changes on Campus

For Students

We will complete the summer semester as planned. The known hygiene and contact-tracking regulations will continue to apply to the classes and exams that have yet to take place. From August 2 onwards, the 3G rule will also apply. This means that you have to be vaccinated, recovered, or tested (“geimpft, genesen oder getestet”) in order to gain access to the campus.

Teaching staff are to provide students from classes that are partially taking place face-to-face the option to download a QR code via Stud.IP for specified days. Said code can then be scanned at the terminals in the building where the classes are to be held. In this way, students will be granted access (see also instructions on building access).

Some examinations, for example for e-General studies, will be offered again as face-to-face exams on campus.

For Staff

Staff have the option to work in their offices again. Please take care when returning to campus so that the risk of infection remains minimized.

From August 2 onwards, the 3G rule will also apply. This means that all persons on campus have to be vaccinated, recovered, or tested (“geimpft, genesen oder getestet”) in order to gain access to the campus. This also applies to students and staff. Your status will be checked by security staff upon entering the buildings. The data will not be recorded or saved.

3G Rule on Campus and Obligatory Mask-Wearing in University Buildings

From August 2 onwards, the 3G rule will apply. This means that you have to be vaccinated, recovered, or tested (“geimpft, genesen oder getestet”) in order to gain access to the campus. You status will be checked by security staff upon entering the buildings. This check will only take place when you are entering a building and your status will not be recorded or saved.

The obligation to wear a mask in buildings remains unchanged and will continue to apply.

Thus, all persons aged 16 or above must wear a medical-grade mask (surgery mask or FFP2-standard mask or similar). It remains unchanged that children and youths up to 15 years of age are obliged to wear a mouth-nose covering. The regulation applies in all areas of movement (entryways, exits, hallways, elevators, etc.), in sanitary facilities, and waiting rooms in university buildings.

Surgical masks will be handed out by security at the entrances to university buildings. Please also take care to adhere to the personal hygiene regulations (washing of hands, coughing and sneezing etiquette).

These regulations apply to all persons on campus, including students and staff.

3G Rule on Campus (status on 03.08.2021)

From August 2 onwards, the 3G rule will also apply. This means that you have to be vaccinated, recovered, or tested (“geimpft, genesen oder getestet”) in order to gain access to the campus. It is required that you are fully vaccinated, thus 14 days must have passed since your second vaccination (14 days after your first vaccination if you received Johnson and Johnson and 14 days after your first vaccination if you are a vaccinated, recovered person). Persons who have recovered from COVID-19 and have not been vaccinated require proof of a positive PCR test, which is valid in the period from 28 days after said test to a maximum of six months after the test. Current corona tests must be official rapid tests or PCR tests - self-tests are not sufficient. The test must be no older than 24 hours. The obligation to wear a mask in buildings is not affected by the above and remains in place. These regulations apply to all persons visiting the campus, including students and staff.

Your status will be checked by security staff upon entering the buildings. This check will only take place when you are entering a building and your status will not be recorded or saved. Those who are vaccinated or recovered in accordance with the above must not be additionally tested. Proof of full vaccination or recovery suffice.

Your status will only be checked at building entryways. You may come onto campus without a 3G document.

Yes, you need to bring some form of identification with you (ID card or passport) in order for it to be determined that the 3G document was issued to you.

As the 28th Bremen State Corona Ordinance states no special regulations concerning the establishment of the 3G rule at state universities, the COVID-19 Protective Measures Exemption Ordinance, which outlines obligatory testing every 24 hours as part of the 3G rule, applies.

In this case, please make use of the public testing opportunities in Bremen State.
