Due to the current obligation to provide information in order to trace possible chains of infection, registration is mandatory for attendance events. If possible, this should be done online via the HFT app or via web variants. Alternatively, paper forms and collection containers are available in the entrance areas of the university buildings.

Online registration:
Registration is carried out with a smartphone in the HFT app or via a mobile web variant by scanning the QR code. It is also possible to register via laptop. Every room change requires a login/logout. It is not allowed to log in only for the first lecture and log out after the last lecture.

Registration in paper form
Alternatively, registration in paper form can be done in the entrance areas of the buildings. Registration forms are available there and there are collection containers. In order to minimise the organisational effort, we kindly ask you to use online registration as a priority.
