QR codes on campus

For the safety of staff and students, everyone who comes to campus must register on the Hallam QR code app and scan our QR codes around campus.

Register on the QR app

When you scan a Hallam QR code for the first time, you’ll be directed to a secure login page.

  • Students should enter the same ID and password used for Blackboard, MyHallam or My Student Record.
  • Staff should enter the ID and password used to access the intranet.
  • Visitors and contractors will be asked to input their contact details.

You should only have to enter these details once. You can save time by registering on the Hallam QR code app by scanning the code below now.

Scan QR codes

Most modern phones have an inbuilt QR scanner which you can access through the camera.

If you can’t scan QR codes with your device, visit the Apple App Store or Google Play to download a QR scanner that works on your device.

Please note, some QR scanners use their own in-built browser which might not connect to our servers. To ensure you can scan Hallam QR codes, choose a QR scanner that integrates with your default browser.

When and where to scan

Hallam QR codes are found on tables and posters throughout the campus. If you spend more than 15 minutes in a place where they’re displayed, scan the nearest one.

If you’re in a group, it’s important that each person scans the code. This means that if one of your group later tests positive, we can alert the others.

You’ll also need to scan the QR codes if you’re on your own. Doing so lets us take precautionary measures if you do test positive.

Moving around campus

You do not need to scan out of a location when you leave an area.

However, if you move to a different space and stay there for more than 15 minutes, you’ll need to scan a QR code in the new location.

Similarly, if you leave and return to the same location later in the day, you will need to scan the QR code again. But only if this has been more than two hours since your initial scan.

NHS QR codes

Scan the NHS QR code and the Hallam QR code if both are displayed.

There is a legal requirement for businesses to display the NHS QR codes in catering outlets, restaurants, gyms, and libraries.

We do not have access to NHS data and require Hallam QR codes to operate contact tracing at a University level.
