The aim of TU Berlin is to ensure a smooth summer semester 2022 in person. To this end, the following regulations take effect immediately:
All facilities and buildings at TU Berlin are open and accessible. The 3G rule for students no longer applies. However, I would ask you to continue to observe the 3G rule on a voluntary basis to reduce the chances of infection on campus. For example, tests are scheduled to be available at the testing tent in front of the Main Building until June. Vaccination stickers from winter semester 2021/22 are still valid and can be used if measures are tightened. So, don't peel them off just yet!
You are required to wear a surgical or FFP2 mask when indoors to protect yourself and others. We strongly recommend that you wear an FFP2 mask. There is no obligation to wear a mask in exams where a distance of 1.5. meters is maintained. The same applies to instructors and speakers. For individual classes, instructors decide according to the situation. In the event of a dispute regarding compliance, the security service may be called in to assist (please state the building and room number when calling):
TU Berlin has revised its hygiene regulations regarding basic protective measures. Please take note of these amendments.
Attendance in classes and exams will no longer be documented for the purposes of tracing.
Classes and exams should take place in presence under the current protection and hygiene regulations. Minimum distancing of 1.5 meters no longer needs to be observed. Depending on the situation (e.g. insufficient options for airing rooms), the number of students in a room can be limited. The old spacing stickers in the lecture halls allow minimum distancing to be maintained for smaller numbers of students. Decisions regarding the scope and organization of classroom teaching lie with those units responsible for teaching. For individual classes, the instructors decide according to the situation.
Planning for room allocation was completed in January for lecture halls at 50 percent space occupancy and seminar rooms at 100 percent. Instructors decide according to the conditions in the rooms assigned to them. In the MTS, rooms can be booked independently again from the start of summer semester 2022 lecture period.
University libraries and PC labs are now open. Centrally and individually managed rooms are also available for use. Seminar rooms may also be used for independent learning if not required for a class. Further information regarding teaching rooms.
