Students, employees and visitors must provide proof of a low epidemiological risk to the security service when entering a TU Wien building. Persons who do not provide a 3-G proof are not allowed to enter!

  • Vaccinated: Proof of vaccination (complete immunization) with an EU-approved vaccine against COVID-19 is required.
    Here is also our urgent appeal to get vaccinated! Therefore, TU Wien and the City of Vienna have organized a vaccination center at the TU Wien campus Karlsplatz.
  • Tested: Vienna has different testing services (entry tests: PCR self-tests, gargle boxes, test lanes, pharmacies). TU Wien provides PCR gargle tests to its students if needed. You can obtain a maximum of 3 test kits per week from the safety boxes at the TU Wien locations by presenting your student ID and entering your name on the list. Participants of "alles gurgelt!" hand in their identity-checked test at participating REWE stores. If this happens before 09:00 am, you will usually receive the result by the next morning. In Vienna, please note the shortened validity period of this test result of 48 h! (Note: For spontaneous testing on site, the test offer of the pharmacies near the TU, e.g. Paulanerapotheke, Wiedner Hauptstraße 18: Mon - Fri 08:00 - 14:00, Apotheke zum Hl. Geist, Operngasse 16).
  • Recovery: Proof is the medical confirmation of a SARS-CoV-2 infection survived in the last 180 days (confirmed by molecular biology), proof of neutralizing antibodies (not older than 90 days) or a certificate of segregation.

TUW members have the option of uploading vaccination, test or convalescence certificates to TISS in advance and in accordance with data protection regulations. This enables simple and time-saving access control at the marked TU entrances ("Fast Lane"). There, the security service checks the validity of the 3-G pass on the basis of the TISS access screen shown on the smartphone:

1. upload green pass in TISS at https://tiss.tuwien.ac.at/3g, opens an external URL in a new window: Instructions, opens an external URL in a new window. Technical support at inside@tiss.tuwien.ac.at
2. show the TISS access screen on your smartphone at the building entrance.

Of course, when checking access in a separate lane ("slow lane"), the 3-G proof can still be presented electronically (e.g. "Green Pass" app of BRZ GmbH on the smartphone) or on paper together with the proof of identity. Please note that this check is more time-consuming and take this into account in your time/appointment planning.
