Information on the corona virus (SARS-CoV-2) and current information on studying and teaching at the HCU

All answers to the most important questions about the Corona pandemic and the applicable regulations can be found here. The information is updated on an ongoing basis.

Access to the main building of the HCU is possible via 3G from 10.01.2022. The 3G rule also applies to the courses.

Here you can find the "Protection Concept HCU Teaching" from 10.01.2022 in German.

The winter semester 2021/2022 at the HCU will take place as far as the pandemic situation allows in classroom teaching.

The 3G rule (vaccinated, recovered, tested) applies to courses.

Teaching events with more than 50 people will take place exclusively digitally from 10.01.2022.

Here you can find the "HCU teaching protection concept" from 10.01.2022.

A continuous mask obligation (FFP2 or medical mask) applies in the teaching events. Wearing an FFP2 mask is recommended.

Room changes may occur for smaller courses if necessary. Please check mails and website regularly.


Here you can find the "Protection Concept HCU Teaching" from 10.01.2022 in German.

Here you can find the current framework protection concept of HCU. The framework protection concept will be updated shortly.

In the university building and during presence events in HCU premises, the obligation to wear a medical mask (e.g. OP mask/FFP2 mask) applies.

Wearing an FFP2 mask is recommended for everyone's protection.

Access into the main HCU building is available via 3-G proof(vaccinated, recovered, tested).
Regular access to the main building is via both entrances "West" (Henning-Voscherau-Platz) and "East" (subway side of HCU) (West entrance: all detections - East entrance: 2G only via CovPass app or CoronaWarnApp). All persons studying, working or teaching in the HCU building and premises must show a 3-G proof, a valid photo ID and the HCU card at the entrance control upon entry.

This is either:
-a coronavirus vaccination certificate (EU approved vaccines such as BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson/Janssen Pharmaceuticals are accepted. If vaccination was done with another vaccine, a negative coronal test must be proven; CWA or CoVPass) or
-A valid proof of recovery.
-A valid proof of test (e.g. PCR test: valid for 48 hours, rapid antigen test: valid for 24 hours).

Infection tracking is still handled with the Luca app. The use of the Luca app is mandatory in the HCU facilities (in the library and in the workshops and laboratories) as well as in the area of the student workplaces. Of course, in addition to the Luca app, it is also possible to leave contact details on paper. The use of the Luca app in the individual courses and in the foyers is foregone, taking into account the stipulations in the hygiene concept (AHA-L).

A protection and hygiene concept is drawn up for the examinations due to take place after the lecture phase.

All decentralized immunization offerings are listed here.

The Federal Ministry of Health has announced that international students who have undergone covid vaccination with vaccines other than those named by the Paul Ehrlich Institute are entitled to free corona tests. This regulation is valid until December 31, 2021. The Standing Commission on Vaccination (STIKO) states that people who have been vaccinated abroad with a COVID-19 vaccine not approved in the EU will need a new series of vaccinations in order to obtain vaccinated status in the EU.

The Infothek and Student Administration can be reached as usual by phone or email:

If you are planning to travel abroad privately, please remember that due to the very dynamic situation, entry into the country may involve further quarantine measures.

If you return from trips to (possibly newly declared) risk areas and are subject to the quarantine rules ordered by the authorities, you are not allowed to enter the HCU buildings after your return.

In order to care for and protect eachother, we kindly ask you to make your travel plans very carefully and to reconsider them if necessary.
