UDE boarding procedure: 3G detection and control

The University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) is returning to a predominantly on-site university operation for the winter semester. At the same time, it welcomes several thousand students who begin their studies at the beginning of October. The Corona Protection Ordinance allows only vaccinated, recovered or negatively tested persons (3G) to attend courses. The 3G regulation is connected with a complete access control, which is implemented at the UDE with a two-stage system. It is based on the check-in and boarding procedure familiar from airports.
