As the coronavirus pandemic intensifies, the QR-PASS system has been installed in most buildings of the Seoul and ERICA Campuses of Hanyang University. Before entering any building, members of Hanyang and visitors are requried to certify their identity with a QR code through the Hanyang University application (for students) or the phone camera and other general QR applications (for visitors). If correctly certified, the date, count of today's entry, and the name of the building will be displayed on the screen.
Why does Hanyang Unviersity use its own QR-PASS?
The QR code-based electronic entry/exit register system distributed by the government, such as Naver QR check-in and KI-Pass, effectively records the movement scope of the patient and the people who may have been in contact with the patient. However, they are mostly suitable for small businesses with single entrance and not as efficient in universities that have many buildings and entrances.
For this reason, Hanyang University developed a suitable QR-PASS system to reduce the user’s inconvenience and swiftly reflect the various infection control measures to the system, as well as minimize staff standing at the entrances.
Self-medical review in the QR-PASS is linked to the existing self medical questionnaire of Hanyang portal, so students only need to fill out one out of the two for each day. The record of the questionnaire is monitored by the infection monitoring staff of each college’s administrative team as a guide to verify the facts and instruct the members with symptoms.
What is different from the traditional sticker distribution method?
Until last semester, visitors entering buildings were given a sticker after measuring their temperature. The measure had a limit that the place and time of every visit could not be recorded.
On the other hand, QR-PASS system allows the staff to check the real-time entry records, as well as the self medical review. Hence, it is possible to keep a watch on the access of those who are under medical suspension from the school. It also minimizes the contact between visitors and staff who check the temperature, thereby reducing the risk of infection for both.

How does the procedure differ for the visitors?
Access of the general public is restricted, with the exception of the people who have consulted with the college and replied to the self medical questionnaire. Visitors who cannot use Hanyang University's mobile application will be required to download a general QR-code application to scan the code or use the phone camera instead. Scanning the code with camera will automatically show a link, which if clicked, will lead to the entrance prerequisite form.
