Due to the current situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Studo has developed the open source system Campus QR for contact tracing at universities. The web tool is available as a standalone application for all universities and can be integrated into the Studo app.

Providing more security simply and efficiently - this is possible with the open source tool Campus QR. When entering a lecture hall or seminar room, students and teachers scan a QR code that is attached to the door or in the entrance area. This check-in in the lecture hall transmits the contact data of the respective person to the university, which manages it via the Campus QR web tool. In the event of an emergency, the university can then access this data. The Campus QR web tool also enables the creation and management of QR codes.

Data protection and security relating Campus QR

Optimal implementation in terms of data protection and security is a top priority for all of Studo's development projects. In addition, Campus QR has a clear commitment to the open source approach: the system can be hosted by the university itself or by Studo on behalf of the university in compliance with the GDPR. You can find out more about the Campus QR open source system on GitHub.

Students and and academic staff scan a printed QR code and check into the lecture hall using their email address.

Campus QR as access management system

Universities can use Campus QR not only to track contacts, but also as an access management system: In this case, access to lecture halls, labs and the like is only granted by explicit invitation. Only students of a course are invited to the respective room by the lecturers before the lecture and can then "check in" to the room via the QR code.

If you are interested in Campus QR, please contact our cooperation manager Lorenz Schmoly by mail or phone. More information about the open source project can be found on GitHub.
