Proof Requirement 3G in University Sports

March 10th, 2022 | by

Current corona-related regulations for participation in university sports classes (Access to University Sports Indoor and Outdoor).

  • Two Vaccinations –> no test needed
  • Recovery and Vaccination –> no test needed
  • Recovery –> no test needed
  • No Immunization –> test is obligatory

Participation in our classes is subject to the presentation of the following proofs:

1. Presentation of proof of recovery

whereby the proof of infection with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has to date back at least 28 days as well as a maximum of 3 months.


2. Presentation of proof of vaccination

A complete immunization record consists of:

  • vaccination certificate (digital or paper certificate of a vaccination facility) with a vaccine approved in Germany. Proof of a complete protective vaccination against the coronavirus-SARS-CoV-2 for which the administration of the last prescribed or recommended vaccination dose took place at least 14 days ago. In case of vaccination with a non-approved vaccine, the University Medical Center offers to provide an appropriate certificate for vaccinations with an equivalent vaccine to support a smooth process of the 3G examinations at RWTH Aachen University.



3. Proof of a Negative Test

Tested persons, as defined by the Coronavirus Protection Ordinance, are persons who have a negative result certified in accordance with the Coronavirus Test and Quarantine Ordinance from a rapid antigen test performed no more than 24 hours ago or a PCR test certified by an accepted laboratory no more than 48 hours ago. A Corona self-test carried out under the supervision of a person instructed in this regard can also be used to issue a test certificate under special conditions. Currently, this only applies to Corona self-tests for RWTH employees.

General information

The proofs must be presented in either German or English and in conjunction with an identification document. If you have any questions regarding the recognition of your vaccination certificate, please visit the FAQ page of RWTH Aachen University. For example, under the heading “I got my Covid-19 vaccination outside of Europe. Will it be recognized as proof of a 3G option here?”

All regulations are based on the current Coronavirus Protection Ordinance NRW. In order to further minimize the incidence of infection, the regulations of Aachen University Sports may go beyond the current legal regulations in coordination with the crisis management team of RWTH Aachen University.

Since checking the documents takes more time than the usual access controls, we ask you to arrive at the sports facility at least 15 minutes before the start of your sports class. You should also expect a corresponding waiting time.
