Campus Covid Code (CCC) | New proof of 3G status for students

Dear students,

We would like to inform you about the new system for checking the 3G (vaccinated, recovered, tested) status upon entering the SRH campuses, which will go into effect on Monday, 17 January 2022.

To ensure safety in teaching and during campus visits, we will create a Campus Covid Code (CCC) for you, which you must use to register your presence in seminar rooms and the public spaces of our campuses. This randomly generated access code, the room number, and the duration of your visit will be saved for 30 days in order to track 3G statuses. This data is encrypted and stored in compliance with the current privacy guidelines. Without a valid access code you will not be allowed to enter seminar rooms from 17 January 2022 onward.

Where do you get the access code?

Starting Wednesday, 12 January 2022, you will receive this code by presenting your student ID as well as a valid vaccination certificate, proof of recovery through a former positive PCR test, an antigen quick test from an authorised testing location (maximum 24 hours old) or a PCR test (maximum 48 hours old).

You can present the aforementioned documents and receive your code at the libraries of all Berlin campuses.

BSM/BST: Mo - Th: 10 am – 6 pm, Fr: 10 am – 4 pm
BSDC: Mo & Th: 9 am – 3 pm, Tu & We: 10 am – 4 pm, Fr closed
SOPA: Mo, Tu, Th: 10 am - noon and 1 pm – 4 pm, We: 10 am - noon and 1 pm – 6 pm, Fr closed

At the DSM and SRH Campus Hamburg the code will be created at the reception desk.

After generating the code, you will receive it through email, which you can save and use to check in. Starting on 17 Janaury 2022, we will conduct frequent checks to ensure the safety of staff and students, we kindly ask for your understanding and cooperation.

3G Rule

In accordance with current infection control regulations, only those who have been vaccinated, tested, or have recovered may enter the university buildings, take advantage of university facilities and receive access to services. Those who are not fully vaccinated or considered recovered must be able to provide a rapid antigen test (max. 24h old) or PCR test (max. 48h old). Students who take part in several face-to-face lectures, seminars and examinations per week, need to provide evidence of at least two negative test results on non-consecutive days. Students who only participate in one face-to-face event per week only need evidence of one negative test result. For those students who are already vaccinated, participation requires: full vaccination plus 14 days.

For questions regarding vaccines not licensed in Europe, please contact the SRH Executive Board at executiveboard@srhberlin.de.

Vaccination Offer

We would like to encourage you to take advantage of the Germany-wide vaccination offer to prevent a further increase in the number of infections. By doing so, you protect yourself and society. We are happy to help you with this. Talk to us, contact your general practitioner, or contact the vaccination centres listed below:

Attendance List and 3G-Verification

For each course and classroom, you will be able to check in digitally via a QR code and by entering your matriculation number. This check-in is mandatory, and by doing so, you will anonymously inform us of your 3G status. In an effort to provide safe teaching for all, the course cannot proceed if there are irregularities in the check-in process. The lecturers and the administrative management reserve the right to carry out random checks, for which the respective health card must be presented. So please carry this verification with you each time you visit the university.

Hygiene Rules

The published hygiene rules refer to the current Infection Control Regulation. Medical masks must be worn in university-wide public areas. If the distance rule cannot be met in classrooms (at least 1.5m), a medical mask must be worn. We also ask you to continue to follow the German AHA-L rule (meaning: keep your distance, wash your hands, wear a mask, and air the rooms).

On behalf of all SRH colleagues, we wish you a joyful, educational, and successful semester with us at SRH Schools. We look forward to seeing you again in large numbers on site. If you have any questions, please contact the Executive Board (executiveboard@srhberlin.de).

Best regards,

Victoria Büsch & Thorsten Bagschik
