Access to University venues is allowed only after authorization by the Director of the Department or Division involved.

The access rules depend on the role and reason for entering the University venues:  it’s important to read and respect the measures set to ensure prevention and protection from infection from SARS-CoV-2, following the principle "everyone protects everyone".


Access with QR Code

Whoever accesses venues must scan the QR Code affixed at each entrance with their smartphone, to allow them to trace their presence in the building, both when entering and exiting. University staff will continue in any case to clock in.

The QR Code can be scanned with myunito+ app by clicking on the "QR Code Reader" menu item. The app can be downloaded from the Apple and Google stores.

Anyone without a smartphone will note the entries/exits in the paper register available at the entrance of each venue.

The data collected will be kept for 14 days and then deleted,based on the contact tracking needs provided by the Health Authority.

In accordance with the Health Authority’s tracking needs after confirmed cases of  COVID-19, all university students, teaching and administrative staff are strongly advised to equip themselves with the IMMUNI App and to open it and keep it active at all times when on university premises.
