Covid-19 and the academic year 2020/21

Lund University is following the Swedish Government’s and Public Health Authority’s recommendations and guidelines regarding measures to reduce the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19).

Updated 8 April

Teaching, examination and physical meetings

In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Lund University has decided on 18 March that all activities, including teaching and examination, are to remain digital as far as possible with no physical attendance on University premises, until further notice. The decision applies to all courses and programmes with a few exceptions, such as practical elements that cannot be completed digitally.

The spread of infection is still at a high level in the community and the tightened restrictions remain effective until further notice. Employees who do not need to be at the workplace to maintain necessary activities are to work from home, and students are still encouraged to continue studying primarily from home, and only to be on campus when it is necessary.

Current restrictions on campus

  • Our premises are closed to the public and accessible only to staff and students with LU-card until further notice.
  • Study places and computer rooms are accessible to students at Lund University with certain adjustments depending on the current situation. Learn more about our study places.
  • Respect the current delimitations of the premises, as well as the arrangement of furniture in order to safeguard the 2 metres distance requirements between each study place. Do not move tables and chairs!
  • All students are still encouraged to study primarily from home and only to be on campus when it is necessary for information searches, use of reference materials, access to learning support, and access to equipment for digital teaching and assessment.
  • Group work are to be conducted digitally with no physical meetings on campus.
  • The LUSEM Library is open with limited hours for students and staff to allow deposits or lending of books and access to reference literature. Learn more on the library’s website.

Further restrictions may apply at short notice.
