The 2021/22 winter semester is just around the corner and we will finally be able to offer more on-site teaching on a campus bustling with both students and staff. However, it is essential that we stay prudent and act responsibly so that face-to-face interactions and classroom teaching remain safe.
To this end, the Extended University Executive Board would like to remind you of the following rules while on campus and in all TUD facilities in Dresden, Tharandt and Zittau.
3G access rules
Proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative test (3G rule) is required to access all buildings and rooms on the TUD campus in Dresden, Tharandt and Zittau as well as to participate in any on-site teaching activities. In accordance with the Corona Protection Ordinance, 3G spot checks will be carried out in certain courses. At events and courses where a large number of people gather in a confined space, it is compulsory to check the vaccination or test status of all participants. In addition, it is obligatory to wear a medical face mask during these events. A mask must also be worn in buildings, rooms and teaching facilities whenever the minimum distance of 1.5 meters cannot be maintained.
For detailed information on the 3G rules, please refer to the FAQ section
It is imperative to follow these rules if we are to have as much on-site attendance as possible during the winter semester. In the spirit of a university culture of responsibility for our community, the University leadership urgently appeals to all TUD members to comply with the 3G access rules. Students and faculty are asked to acknowledge and comply with these rules. You will find a corresponding declaration to be filled out on OPAL as of October 11. Administration staff will receive a separate notification from the Chancellor. For more information about these declarations, please refer to the Covid-19 FAQ section
We are striving to make it easier for all TUD members to implement the 3G rule. Therefore, we have organized free vaccination
at the start of the semester.
During the week of October 4–8, Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe (St. John Ambulance Brigade) will offer rapid antigen tests from 7:30 am to 2:30 pm in the main auditorium (HSZ). No appointment is required. Currently, TU Dresden is looking into the extent to which we can continue to offer supervised self-tests on campus free of charge after October 11. Up-to-date information will be published in a timely manner in the Covid-19 FAQ
From October 4 to 16 and November 8 to 20, TU Dresden and the City of Dresden will set up a vaccination center in the HSZ on Bergstraße. TUD students and staff can get vaccinated directly on campus from Monday to Saturday between 10 am and 3:30 pm. Members of the university may book an appointment, but walk-ins are also welcome. During both vaccination periods, both first and second doses are available, as well as booster vaccinations for people over 70 years of age. Staff and students of TUD who have received a vaccine that is not licensed in the EU can also receive a basic immunization. Those wishing to be vaccinated only need to bring their health insurance card, ID card or passport as well as their vaccination book (if they have one).

We very much look forward to welcoming you all back on campus soon!
Best regards on behalf of the Extended University Executive Board,
