Welcome to the University of Bonn
Information for Guests and Service Providers about the Regulations in Force at the University of Bonn

Information for Guests and Service Providers

Through provision of this summary of the most important regulations governing behavior on University premises, we hope to make the visits of our guests as easy as possible. Please note that the exigencies of the pandemic mean that not all University buildings maintain their usual opening hours; many of our employees are also currently working from home. For the protection of yourself and others we request that you minimize visits to our premises by performing as many tasks online as is possible.

The Seven Golden Rules for On-Campus Behavior


Act responsibly.

Wear a mask in University indoor areas.


Keep yourself clean.

Disinfect your hands at the entrances to University buildings and wash them regularly and thoroughly with soap and water.


Recover fully.

Those exhibiting any symptoms of illness or who have had recent contact with the infected are not permitted to enter the University premises.


React quickly.

Always sneeze and cough into the inside of your elbow.


Keep your distance.

Always maintain a distance of at least 1.5 meters from others to protect yourself and those around you.


Ventilate rooms often.

Fresh air reduces the aerosol concentration in a room.


Remain up-to-date.

Always keep abreast of the latest regulations.

Limited access to University premisses

In all buildings of the University of Bonn there is a "3G" obligation, i.e. the buildings may only be entered by persons who have been fully vaccinated or have recovered and can prove this or who can present a daily Corona test. The relevant proof and an identification document must be shown upon entry. The "2G" rule (vaccinated or recovered) applies to visits to museums and collections including the botanical gardens, University sports and libraries by external persons.

Masks and Disinfection

All visitors to the University of Bonn and all other persons present are required to wear a mask at all times when on the University premises.

Please either take your used single-use mask home with you or dispose of it in the separate waste bins marked for masks. Do not dispose of masks in the general waste bins.

Disinfection stands are located in front of every entrance to the University. Please disinfect your hands before entering University buildings and make sure to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water regularly during the course of a day.

... What to do if you are feeling unwell

If you feel unwell, have had recent contact with a person suffering from COVID-19 or have recently returned from a high-risk region, you may not enter any University of Bonn premises.

If you start to feel unwell when on a University site, please leave the premises immediately and seek medical advice.

If you think that you might have contracted COVID-19, you can notify your suspicion to the University's Occupational Safety Unit by email. Should you need medical advice outside the opening hours of medical practices, contact the non-emergency doctor on call (Kassenärztlicher Bereitschaftsdienst) under 116117.

... Further Regulations

A number of further regulations beyond those issued by the University require compliance. For example, the City of Bonn has ruled that visitors to certain public spaces are required to wear masks. A number of these public spaces are located in the immediate vicinity of certain University buildings.

Social distancing regulations also require compliance.

All information about the regulations currently in force can be found on the subpage “Important Documents”.
