Teaching, Exams and Use of Study Areas on campus during the COVID-19 pandemic

In order to take part in exams or courses or use the study areas on campus during the COVID-19 pandemic, you must comply with the following regulations. We ask that you read the information below carefully and register for courses or exams on campus only if you intend to do so under the specified conditions:

General information

  • You may only participate in a course if you have registered in advance. Without prior registration, participation is not possible.
  • Persons meeting the following criteria are prohibited from taking part in a course:
    • Anyone who is in quarantine according to the current Entry Quarantine Ordinance.
    • Anyone who has had contact with someone infected with COVID-19 within the last 14 days.
    • Anyone exhibiting symptoms consistent with COVID-19 infection, any degree or respiratory illness or general symptoms of illness.
  • Should you experience symptoms of illness consistent with COVID-19 infection after attending a course, exam or using a study area, you must contact the crisis management team immediately. Please follow the procedure described here for reporting: http://go.tum.de/corona-faq
  • If you belong to one of the risk groups defined by the Robert Koch Institute, who are subject to a severe progression of the illness and wish to take part in a course or exam or use a study area, you are required to take the necessary measures for your own protection, or to refrain from participating. The crisis management team (krisenstab-coronavirus(at)tum.de) or your attending physician can advise you in this regard.
  • Participation of expectant mothers in in-person examinations and courses offered by TUM is permissible, as a rule, provided that safety and hygiene measures are observed. For practical courses (e.g. laboratory courses involving the handling of hazardous substances) the risk assessment of the responsible supervisor is decisive. In all cases, it is important that you inform yourself in advance about the current regional incidence of infection relevant to you (https://corona.rki.de/ under Landkreise), as the assessment here does not explicitly refer to the risks to which you could be exposed on arrival. For example, if the incidence of infection is considered critical with more than 50 newly infected persons per 100,000 inhabitants in the last seven days, you should refrain from taking part in any in-person events. If in doubt, please contact your physician or the TUM Corona Crisis Task Force at krisenstab-coronavirus(at)tum.de (advising through occupational safety experts and physicians).

Contact Tracing

Before attending a course on campus, registration for the course is mandatory. Before each course, exam or learning room visit, registration via the QR code at the seat/room is also mandatory.

Please register with QRONITON. After this one-time registration process, the check-in in the lecture hall/room is done by scanning a QR code. On our homepage, we explain registration and check-in step by step.

Rules of conduct and hygiene to be observed

Please observe the hygiene rules (PDF, 232 KB).

In particular:

  • Wearing a FFP2 mask or medical mask is mandatory during your stay on campus. Refer also to the instructions for handling the Mouth-Nose Cover (PDF, 160 KB).
  • Wash hands thoroughly before and after the course, exam or use of a study area.
  • At all times (including on arrival and in the waiting area in front of the course or other room, toilets, etc.) a minimum distance of 1.5 m between any two persons must be maintained.
  • There shall be no handshaking or embracing to greet or depart.
  • Equipment and utensils (e.g. pens/pencils) are to be used solely by individual students, or are cleaned before being handed over to another person.

Conduct after the exam, course or use of a study area

Staying on the TUM campus is currently only permitted for study-related purposes. Please avoid gatherings of all kinds and keep the minimum distance.
