Informations for students

The winter semester 2021/2022

The TUK follows the opening concept of the state government and the associated planning requirements of the Ministry of Health and Science (MWG). The opening concept envisions a university operation that is predominantly based on attendance. The basis for this is the 3-G rule, which allows vaccinated, (negatively) tested and recovered persons access to lectures and other face-to-face events. The state has announced that it will create the necessary legal basis for applying the 3-G rule in an upcoming Corona control regulation. Spacing regulations and restrictions on room capacity are not included in this opening concept for the time being. In the planning of the winter semester, the room capacities in the HIS system can be used accordingly. Regardless of the specific requirements of the state, we plan to implement with an explicit recommendation of wearing a mouth-nose protection. The contact recording requirement will remain in place for the foreseeable future. Digital teaching and learning materials will be made available for students who are unable to attend face-to-face classes (quarantine cases, etc.). More info can be found here.

Contact tracking and testing obligation (3G status)

Contact tracking

All participants of events at TUK usually generate a QR code for themselves once on the website https://kontaktverfolgung.uni-kl.dewith their contact details: name, address and telephone number.

When visiting the event, this QR code is shown to the event organizer and scanned. Only the name is visible to the event organizer.

When leaving the event, the QR code is either scanned again or the organizers close the contact tracing at the end of the event.

Further information can be found here.

Test obligation (3G status)

Due to the current Corona Control Ordinance of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, the TU Kaiserslautern is obliged to record the contact data of all students and visitors at events of the TUK as well as to check the 3G status.

In order to make the collection easy and efficient during face-to-face events, the web application Intake is used university-wide.

The existing Intake QR code is enriched with information about the 3G status. This is done at defined locations on the TUK campus. By 08/11/2021, all students should have their Intake QR code enriched (vaccinated & recovered). Individuals who are neither vaccinated nor recovered must be tested regularly (rapid test). These individuals must have their Intake QR Code re-enriched after each test. A rapid test is valid on the day of testing and throughout the following day.
