Studying safely
in Heilbronn

Our Hygiene Regulation
at TUM Campus Heilbronn

With extraordinary dedication, creative solutions, and great flexibility, our staff and students at the TUM Campus Heilbronn have mastered the past months of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the current semester, we will continue to face a multitude of challenges. Together, we can turn this situation to our advantage and make a meaningful contribution to the success of the current generation of students and our university as a whole – and, above all, get ourselves safely through these challenging times.

Due to rapidly changing circumstances, Baden-Württemberg has introduced a three-level warning system with each level resulting in differently strict rules and regulations that might impact studying and teaching at TUM Campus Heilbronn.

Please inform yourself regularly about the latest developments and decisions concerning the handling of COVID-19 with regards to your on-site lectures and seminars.

Corona Virus Update

Critical Information in Brief – as of November 29, 2021

  • Return to Campus: On-campus teaching becomes once again the rule
  • “2G rule”: Access to on-campus courses only with proof of vaccination* or recovery.

  • Examination and other deadlines: For winter semester 2021/22, no special conditions apply
  • Please note that the cafeteria and library are not operated by us and may follow their own regulations.

Get to know your fellow students!

These are unusual times, which is why, for now, the new campus life means connecting from a safe distance. We know how important it is to get to know your fellow students from TUM Campus Heilbronn, especially if you have just started your studies at TUM School of Management. In order for you to connect with one another, we have now launched the online networking tool Mystery Matching. It is a simple online tool that allows you to meet fellow students from your own study program or get in touch with students in other programs or advanced semesters. Once matched by the algorithm, choose to meet online, team up to find study buddies or network with the whole TUM Campus Heilbronn community. Step 1 is to register online where you will need to answer a short questionnaire regarding your preferences and availability to meet up. Next the algorithm starts the matching. Mystery Matching will regularly assign random partners both of which will then receive an email with one another’s contact details and a suggested day for the meet up. Arranging the exact time and place of the meeting is then up to you!

Sign up now with your TUM E-Mail address and get ready to be matched!

Hygiene Regulation – TUM Campus Heilbronn

By participating in our classroom event, you agree to the following protection and hygiene measures:

  • Access to TUM buildings for students and visitors according to the 2G rules: mandatory proof required for those vaccinated or recovered (“2G”)
  • Contact tracking via Qroniton
  • Mandatory to wear masks (medical mask or FFP2-mask) all the time
  • Adherence to AHA+A+L rule (distance-hygiene-mask-App-ventilate)
  • Confirmed seating assignment
  • Leaving the building at the end of the event

2G Check

  • The control is carried out centrally at the D-Bau for all study programs (Attention: no control at the L-Bau).
  • Each student will be checked once a day and will receive an identification (wristband) which is valid for that day. Thus, it is possible to switch between buildings/rooms without additional effort.

The following timeslots are defined for the check:
Monday7:30 a.m. - 8:15 a.m.12:15 p.m. - 13:15 p.m.
Tuesday7:30 a.m. - 9:15 a.m.
Wednesday7:30 a.m. - 11.30 a.m.
Thursday7:30 a.m. -11:15 a.m.
Friday9:00 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.

  • Latecomers can report to the Service Point (D-Bau), show their proof and receive the wristband.
  • The color of the ribbon is changed every day.
  • The lecturer/professor checks the presence of the wristband.
  • The control is carried out by a team consisting of a security officer (2G control) and an employee of TUM gGmbH (issuance of the wristband).

How is it controlled?

Proof of vaccination and recovery:
If possible, the proof should be provided digitally via the current apps:

  • Corona Warn App
  • CovPass App
  • Luca App

The validity of the proof is displayed in the app. A digital EU certificate is required for this. It is possible to convert vaccination and health certificates from non-EU countries into an EU certificate by the following doctor in Heilbronn:

Mr. Dr. med. Martin Uellner
Adolf-Alter-Str. 12
74080 Heilbronn
Tel. +49 – (0)7131 – 42179

Please take note of the following new informations:

  • Since November 12, 2021, rapid antigen tests in Heilbronn are again free of charge for all citizens.
  • The city of Heilbronn has established a new vaccination point in Kaiserstraße 40. It is aimed at anyone who needs a booster vaccination.
  • In Baden-Wuerttemberg both FFP2-mask AND medical masks are allowed. Masks must be worn inside all the time and outside in case the distance of 1,5m is not given.

Check-in via QR code in the seminar room for contact tracking.

The contact data collection remains an obligatory part of the protection and hygiene concept of the TUM. Students in the context of courses should login via the QRONITON QR codes placed at the entrance and inside the classroom, so that infection chains can be traced.

For this purpose, the contact tracing system QRONITON was installed at TUM. After a one-time registration process, check-in is done by scanning a QR code via QRONITRON’s in-app scanning function. In our step-by-step instructions (https://www.tum.de/en/about-tum/news/coronavirus/contact-tracing/), we explain what needs to be observed during registration and check-in.

Obligation to wear masks, evaluation and further regulations for infection control

  • The mask remains an important factor in minimizing the risk of infection, so masks are still mandatory in all TUM buildings, including at the lecture hall or study room all the time, whether the minimum distance of 1.5 m is maintained or not. Lecturers can dispense with the mask during a course, if the minimum distance to students is maintained. During the winter semester, instructors and students are free to either wear a medical mask (“surgical mask”) or an FFP2 mask.
  • Use of the selected seat for the duration of the entire seminar as well as check-in via Qroniton.
  • Work equipment or objects (e.g.: pens) are used exclusively for the person, or are cleaned before being handed over to another person
  • Compliance with the AHA+A+L rule is mandatory
  • Use marked walkways

Excluded from participation are persons, who

  • Are quarantined under the current coronavirus entry regulation
  • Have knowingly had contact with a person infected with Covid-19 within the past 14 days; or
  • Have Covid-19-specific symptoms, respiratory symptoms of any severity, or nonspecific general symptoms
  • Are unable to provide proof of vaccination or recovery (“2G”)
