On campus, the 3G rule applies everywhere as a minimum standard; in the area of culture and leisure, 2G or 2G plus applies. An exception regulation applies to practical courses in sports studies.
The 3G rule applies to university operations. Only those who are vaccinated, recovered or tested (antigen test not older than 24 hours, PCR test not older than 48 hours) are allowed access to university services and events such as lectures. The 3G rule also applies to libraries and committee meetings. The control takes place via the green check mark in the TU app or by showing the original certificate.
However, the 2Gplus rule (indoors) applies to practical sport courses as part of the teaching studies in the subject of sport, in the minor subject of sport or in rehabilitation sciences, i.e. only vaccinated or recovered persons may participate, who additionally have a current negative test certificate of an antigen rapid test. The testing obligation is waived for boostered participants (third vaccination respectively second vaccination in the case of "Johnson & Johnson vaccine") or persons in whom an infection was detected by PCR test within the last three months, although they were previously fully immunized. Transitionally, negative PCR test certificates may also be submitted as a substitute for immunization. The 2G rule still applies to outdoor sports. For more information, please visit the website of the Department of Sports and Sport Science.
All employees working on campus must provide 3G certification. The direct superiors are responsible for checking this. However, they may also delegate the task. The supervisor or the designated representative must document that a vaccination certificate, proof of recovery or a current negative test result from a certified testing center has been presented. The green check mark is not sufficient. For more information, see the FAQ section on 3G controls.
The 2G rule, respectively the 2Gplus rule applies to cultural and leisure activities. Therefore, only vaccinated and recovered persons can participate in attend concerts and exhibitions, or attend academic award ceremonies. At TU Dortmund University, participants should also take an antigen test in advance if possible (2G plus). Purely social formats such as movie evenings are to be cancelled until the end of the year for reasons of contact reduction. For the indoor activities of university sports, the 2Gplus rule applies. The testing obligation is here also waived for boostered participants or persons in whom an infection was detected by PCR test within the last three months, although they were previously fully immunized.
In the cafeterias and other catering facilities, the 3G rule continues to apply for university employees. The 2Gplus rule applies only to guests in the cafeterias, analogous to regular restaurant businesses and catering offers outside university.
The buildings are open; however, in some cases only the main entrances can be used without a key. In the eleven largest lecture hall and seminar buildings, security guards check the 3G proof of students and employees at the main entrances between 7:30 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday (see 3G controls). Masks are mandatory in the buildings. Learning spaces can be booked in the libraries as well as in the seminar room building (see Studies and Teaching).
Since 24 November 24, employees have been subject to 3G regulations at the workplace. At TU Dortmund University, the direct superiors are responsible for the controls. However, they may also delegate the task. The supervisor or the designated representative must document that a vaccination certificate, proof of recovery or a current negative test result from a certified testing center has been presented. The green check mark is not sufficient. In addition, employees as well as students must carry 3G proof in the case that law enforcement officials conduct checks on campus.
In order to keep the distance in the hallways as large as possible, a "walk on the right”-rule applies, equivalent to road traffic. In addition, an additional Corona signage system was installed throughout the campus, both in the buildings and in outdoor areas (distance requirement, routing, toilet use, one-way street regulations).
It is mandatory to wear a medical mask (surgical or FFP 2 mask) in all buildings and rooms. A medical mask must be worn in the hallways, corridors and toilet facilities. Wearing a medical mask at TU Dortmund University may only be waived at the workplace if the rules of hygiene and the minimum distance can be observed. Lecturers may refrain from wearing a mask if they can maintain a minimum distance of 4 m from the participants.
The Office of Occupational Safety, Environmental and Health Protection provides certified surgical masks to the Dean’s Offices and other institutions which can be issued to employees for work on campus. A contingent of FFP2 masks is available if it is inevitable to work without a minimum distance in special situations.
Yes. The main cafeteria, the food fakultät and the Café C (all North Campus) are open. All other cafeterias/catering areas are closed until further notice. For university members, the 3G rule applies in all facilities if you want to use a seat. The 2Gplus rule applies to guests. Registration is not necessary for this.
In the buildings, except at the seat a medical mask (surgical mask, FFP2 mask, KN95 mask) must be worn.
The Office of University Sports offers courses on site. The gym on campus (Fitnessförderwerk) is also open. In the winter semester 2021/22, all sports are offered without restrictions. Some courses will also take place on a hybrid basis - these will then also be streamed. Currently, the 2Gplus rule applies to the indoor activities of university sports. Access to the sports offers is only possible with certification of vaccination or convalescence and a current negative test result of a rapid antigen test. The testing obligation is waived for boostered participants (third vaccination respectively second vaccination in the case of "Johnson & Johnson vaccine") or persons in whom an infection was detected by PCR test within the last three months, although they were previously fully immunized.
The 2G rule still applies to outdoor sports (vaccinated or recovered from infection).
For more information, please visit the website of the Office of University Sports.
Committees, including appointment committees, should meet predominantly digitally. The "3G rule" applies to face-to-face meetings.
You can find a guide to committee work in the ServicePortal (in German only). The document explains in particular which alternatives to meetings in attendance form are possible.
Due to the current infection situation, events of a purely social nature, such as Christmas parties or movie nights, unfortunately have to be cancelled until the end of the year.
We recommend that all TU members install the Corona warning app on their smartphones. This way, people who have been in the vicinity of an infected person can be informed. The app may also be installed on service cell phones. Traceability via registration in events, e.g. via QR code, on the other hand, is legally suspended.
