Covid19 Campus Security
How does the Campus Security System work?
The HTW Berlin security system makes your stay on the campus as safe as possible. The system consists of the following components:
3G check on campus (German equivalent is “3G” for getested, genesen, geimpft)
There are tents for the 3G check at both locations from 29.9. Opening hours are Monday - Friday from 7:30 am to 4 pm. Students and employees receive either a coloured permanent sticker on their student ID or employee access card at the „3G-Check” if they have been vaccinated or have recovered. Those who have tested negative receive a coloured 2-day presence card. This makes it easy to visually check whether everyone in the room has “3G” status at events.
Mandatory masks indoors
Masks are compulsory in all indoor spaces. If a distance of 1.5 meters can be maintained, medical masks are sufficient. If the distance cannot be maintained, FFP2 masks are required. FFP2 masks should therefore be worn in laboratories and studios.
Please also wear masks outdoors on campus grounds if the distance cannot be safely maintained (e.g. in queues).
Test centres on both campuses
If you need to get testet, please go to one of the public test centres next to your house. This way, an infection may be detectet before you use public transport and meet other people on campus. Aditionally, there are test centres on both campuses:
Campus Treskowallee (Atrium building, acces via Treskowallee)
- Monday to Friday: 8 am to 5 pm
- Saturday and Sunday: 10 am to 6 pm
Campus Wilhelminenhof (G Building, next to the refectory and the library)
- Monday to Friday: 8 am to 3 pm
- Saturday and Sunday: 10 am to 5 pm
Digital contact tracing
A privacy-compliant digital application from HTW Berlin is available for Corona contact tracking. There are QR codes in each room that you simply scan with your mobile phone to check in to the room.
3G status check in class
The coloured stickers on student ID cards or the coloured 2-day presence cards enable a simple visual check at events to quickly determine whether everyone present meets an appropriate status (e.g. either tested, recovered or vaccinated).
If the worst comes to the worst: report the infection via the HTW website
Students and employees who have become infected should report their infection via the HTW website. In this way, we can interrupt infection chains as quickly as possible and support the health department.
