Universitat Hamburg introduces 2G in teaching


From Monday, December 6th, 2021, presentations will only take place under the condition that students and teachers have been vaccinated or have recovered. The University of Hamburg is thus implementing the 2G option for universities that was recently changed in the FHH's containment ordinance.

Since Monday, November 29, 2021, the 2G regulation has been in effect across the board in the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. This means that adults without a full vaccination or recovery cannot take advantage of any cultural or educational offers in attendance. The containment ordinance gives universities the opportunity to hold courses according to the 2G requirements.

University President Univ.-Prof. Dr. Dr. hc Dieter Lenzen: “Against the background of the significantly worsening pandemic situation, the use of the 2G option for teaching at the University of Hamburg is advisable. We understand this step on the one hand as the social responsibility of our university in containing the pandemic and on the other hand as protection of the presence offered for vaccinated and convalescent students who had to look at screens long enough. "

Students who have neither been vaccinated nor recovered should be offered a suitable substitute by the lecturer if necessary. It is still up to the lecturers whether they implement their events in face-to-face, digital or hybrid form. Courses with practical components, such as laboratory activities, can initially also take place after December 6th under 3G requirements; the provisions of the test certificate for the campus pass continue to apply here. Exams should be carried out in digital form whenever possible.
