COVID-19 hygiene and safety requirements

WU buildings - entrance requirements (tested, vaccinated, or recovered)

WU buildings may only be entered if the entrance requirements (tested, vaccinated, or recovered) are met. One of the following proofs must be presented to enter and remain in WU buildings.

Starting August 15, a vaccination is only valid for entrance at WU if the immunization is complete, i.e. from the day of the 2nd vaccination. This does not apply to vaccines with only one dose. These are accepted for entrance from the 22nd day after the vaccination. The regulations for those who have recovered and those who have been tested remain unchanged.

When do I have to wear a mouth and nose protector?
  • When entering the library building until reaching your study place (incl. group workrooms and carrels).

  • When leaving your study place.

  • When collecting books at the library front desk.

  • When a library card is issued at the library front desk.

This applies to all 3 library branches (Central Library, Library for Law, Library for Social Sciences).
