Coronavirus – Update: Contact Person Management at TU Wien

As already announced, with the start of the winter semester 2020/21, the access of employees and students to the buildings of the TU Wien will be registered by scanning a QR code. This will implement a centralized and DSGVO-compliant, digital contact person management system at the TU Wien, which will enable fast, coordinated and effective action in the event of a Covid-19 (suspected) case.

Coronavirus – Update 29.09.2020

The QR-Codes are attached to every entrance of a TU Wien building. Students and employees are obliged to register in TISS when entering the building. This is done by scanning the QR code with a mobile device of the person entering the building. This will call up a TISS page on the mobile device, for which the person must first authenticate himself/herself in the TU Wien Single-Sign-On (SSO) portal. After successful login the access is registered immediately.

Recommendation: To avoid congestion in front of the entrances, it is advisable to log in to TISS on the way to the respective building. Login sessions remain active for about 15 minutes.

Persons who - for various reasons - do not have a mobile device at the time of entering a building of the TU Wien can register at the concierge loges. There, tablets/mobile devices are made available, with which people can log in and register in TISS. These devices are disinfected after each use by GuT employees.

A detailed description of the registration process can be found in the coLab of the TU Wien at:, opens an external URL in a new window.
