Let's take a step together to contain the pandemic.

As already announced, the possibility of Covid tests offers us a framework to increase the security and flexibility of operations on campus.

Access to the campus is permitted if you provide one of the following documents:

  • Proof of a negative result of a SARS-CoV-2 antigen test for personal use, which is recorded in an official data processing system and is not older than 24 hours ago.
  • Evidence from an authorized body of a negative result of an antigen test for SARS-CoV-2, issued no longer than 48 hours ago.
  • Evidence from an authorized body of a negative result of a molecular biological test for SARS-CoV-2, issued no longer than 72 hours ago.
  • Medical confirmation of an infection with SARS-CoV-2 which you went through in the last six months, which has been confirmed by molecular biology.
  • Evidence of neutralizing antibodies that must not be older than three months.
  • Evidence in accordance with Section 4, Paragraph 18 of the EpiG [Epidemiegesetz] or a separation decision [Absonderungsbescheid] if this was issued for a person who was verifiably infected with SARS-CoV-2 in the last six months.

    • Vaccination from the 22nd day after vaccination in the case of vaccines for which only one vaccination is planned, whereby this must not be more than nine months ago, or
    • Vaccination, provided that there was a positive molecular biological test for SARS-CoV-2 at least 21 days before the vaccination or proof of neutralizing antibodies before the vaccination, whereby the vaccination must not be more than nine months ago.

In addition to the public test offer (registration via:, the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences offers a rapid antigen test (lollipop test). This is also officially valid (e.g. for visiting the hairdresser).

  • First and last name of the tested person;
  • date of birth;
  • date and time of sampling,

    • Negative self-test that was recorded in an official data processing system of the federal states and is not older than 24 hours.
    • A negative rapid antigen test from a public test street from “Österreich testet”, pharmacies, laboratories, doctors, which is not older than 48 hours from the date of issue.
    • Negative PCR test from a public test street by “Österreich testet”, pharmacies and laboratories, doctors that is not older than 72 hours from the date of issue.

  • Negative antigen rapid tests of a company - if the tests are not supervised by appropriately qualified and authorized health personnel.
  • Unattended tests such as self-tests, living room tests and gargle tests, provided they are not recorded by an official data processing system of the federal states.
  • School or nose pick tests.
  • Point-of-sale tests for single entry to sports facilities, business premises, restaurants, hotels or an event complete the offer.


A test appointment can be booked up to 10 days in advance.

No, the test kid is available in the test street and does not have to be brought along independently.

No, a test certificate is only issued with the test kits from CUAS.

No, the additional test offer is reserved for students, employees, service staff and invited guests of the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences.

No, as an alternative, there are some doctors who already do rapid antigen tests using a saliva sample or lollipop test and who issue a proof that is valid for 48 hours.

Here you`ll find the link.



The manufacturer has secured itself with the 2-hour rule. In consultation with the medical director of "SAFE on Campus", Mr. Marco Kachler, this 2-hour rule does not have to be adhered to for a valid result.

It may happen though that if you eat or drink something immediately before the test, the test result may be invalid.

Ja, als nebenberuflich Lehrende*r sind Sie FH angehörig und gelten somit als FH interne Person. Sie müssen lediglich dem Testpersonal glaubhaft machen, dass Sie FH angehörig sind.
z. B. durch eine FH E-Mail Adresse.

No, a separation notice [Absonderungsbescheid] is only valid as a test exemption if you have been separated due to your SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Such a notice for people identified  as a COVID19 contact persons is not recognized as a test exemption.

Als Testbefreiung gilt ein Nachweis über ausgewiesene Antikörper und dieser gilt ab Ausstellungdatum für drei Monate.
ACHTUNG: Es muss dezidiert angeführt sein, dass es sich um ausgewiesene Antikörper handelt. Sollten Sie sich unsicher sein,

können Sie ihren Nachweis gerne an m.buttazonifh-kaerntenat zur Überprüfung zukommen lassen.

The test exemption applies from the 11th day after the PCR test acceptance for six months.

An example: You did a PCR test on January 1st, 2021 and it was positive. Your test exemption is therefore valid for six months from January 11th, i.e. until July 11th, 2021.

Basically: The course leader (full-time lecture, part-time lecture) checks before the start of the course or examination whether the access requirements have been met.

Employees are checked by their supervisor. External persons are controlled by the person who invited them.

In principle, all internal and external of CUAS are informed about the access regulations. Should an acute incident arise nevertheless (a technician has to go to CUAS etc. at short notice), the campus management must be informed and a solution will be sought:

In urgent cases, you can also contact the coordinator for "SAFE on Campus": Mr. Marco Buttazoni | +43 5 90500 7313 | m.buttazonifh-kaerntenat

 In the header, click on the "Instructions after positive testing" button. There you will find all further steps.

No, after a positive test you have to do a PCR test and are therefore not allowed to enter a building of CUAS.

Unless you go to the Campus St. Veiter Straße for PCR testing. This campus may be entered in the course of a PCR test.

No, the test is valid from the date of issue for as long as the respective test provides. The validity of a test certificate is detailed on the certificate.
If your test expires at 2:00 p.m. on a working day and you stay at CUAS until 4:00 p.m., this will not be considered valid.
Please make sure that your test certificate is valid for the duration of your stay at CUAS.

After the event / meeting has been approved by the CUAS management, you can invite the external persons to the campus.
You can access the guidelines for external persons via the “SAFE on CAMPUS” homepage by clicking the “Access for external persons” button.
External persons can be tested at the CUAS, provided they can show an invitation from CUAS.
Therefore, please always send external persons an invitation with the possibility of testing.
The procedure for external users is the same as for internal users: registration – booking etc.

No, the test obligation applies at all times to everyone who enters a building of CUAS.
