Rules for Registering in all University Buildings Starting on October 26th

Students and guest auditors do not register at building entrances, but instead in the places where they will be present for longer periods of time, such as seminar rooms, lecture halls, study areas, the library, the cafeteria, or other areas. To register, you will need to scan a QR-Code using a smartphone, tablet, or laptop.

The library and the cafeteria have their own registration procedures.

Staff members have to register at university building entrances, but only once per day. Staff can register using their Uni-Card (scanner) or by scanning a QR code with their smartphone. For those who do not have a Uni-Card or a smartphone, there are also access sheets that can be submitted in the letterboxes provided.

Guests and workers from external companies no longer need to register at the entrances to university buildings. Instead, it is now the responsibility of the host or contractor at Bielefeld University to document their presence (by taking down their contact information including name, telephone number, email address, and time/date present). Guests and external suppliers who are only present for a short period of time in a university building do not need to register.

Until further notice, there are only three entrances open at the Main University Building (main entrance C01, south-UMV and West P0) and one entrance at Building X (side entrance by the security station).

As a general rule, individuals must practice social distancing by keeping at least 1.5 meters distance from others. A face mask must be worn in university building areas where a minimum distance of 1.5 meters cannot be maintained as well as in public traffic areas. Individuals with respiratory systems or fever are not allowed on campus (unless their symptoms have been otherwise cleared by a doctor).

The entrances are open on weekdays from 6.45am to 8pm. The University is closed on weekends and public holidays.
