Being on campus - rules for students

The reduction of physical contacts is an important factor for containing the Corona pandemic, therefore personal meetings should be reduced to the necessary minimum. In case you have to attend an urgent meeting / appointment at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, please follow the rules below to protect yourself and others from a COVID-19 infection:

Under the following circumstances you are not allowed to enter the RUB campus or RUB facilities:

  • Positive COVID-19 test result: Persons who have tested positive for COVID-19 and are in self-isolation or quarantine are not allowed to enter the campus and facilities of the RUB (see “Quarantäneverordnung NRW“).
  • In case of direct contact with a sick person or with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19: Persons who have had close contact (e.g. face-to-face, in their own household or at parties) with a sick person or with a person who has been tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days are not allowed to come to the RUB (see “Quarantäneverordnung NRW).
  • After staying abroad: During the quarantine period after a stay abroad, the RUB campus and facilities may not be entered (also see “Corona-Einreiseverordnung NRW” and ” Corona-Einreiseverordnung Bund”).

In addition to that, please note:

  • In case of symptoms of a respiratory infection (including mild symptoms) and/or recently developed odour or taste disorders, you are not allowed to enter the RUB campus or RUB facilities. Please contact the person in charge of your appointment by phone or e-mail to re-schedule.
  • Come to your appointment by yourself (without an accompanying person unless assistance is needed e.g. for (severely) disabled persons. In this case please discuss the according arrangements in advance with the person in charge of your appointment).
  • A surgical face mask must be worn everywhere on the RUB campus and inside the buildings in all public spaces (hallways etc.) and in shared facilities (e.g. rest rooms, kitchenettes). This also applies while seated at a lecture or an exam.
  • During events (e.g. lectures), the instructions of the person in charge of the event („Veranstaltungsleitung“) must be observed.
  • Go straight to your appointment.
  • Travel by yourself in an elevator
  • Please be on time and keep a distance of at least 1.5 m to other persons.
  • Avoid shaking hands and other physical contact.
  • Leave the RUB campus / RUB facility directly after your meeting / appointment.

Thank you for your cooperation!
