Changes due to COVID-19


  • Teaching in the autumn semester 2021

    Online and on-campus activities during the first part of the semester

    The University of Gothenburg has planned for a gradual opening of on-campus activities. During the first part of the autumn semester we will offer a mixture of on-campus and online teaching - what this will mean for different courses will be communicated by the course coordinator via the learning platform Canvas. Regardless of what course you are taking it is important that you are able to attend teaching sessions in Gothenburg in September.

    On-campus teaching during the second part of the semester

    On-campus teaching is planned for the second part of the autumn semester. Our course coordinators will informyou  of the schedule for the planned on-campus teaching, via Canvas.

    If anything changes

    The level of opening up will depend on the recommendations from the Swedish government and the Public Health Agency of Sweden. Depending on how the government assesses the developments, restrictions may have to be re-introduced, either on a national or regional level.

    Any changes to the current plan to go back to on-campus teaching will be communicated to all students as soon as possible via email (please note that emails may go to your spam inbox).

    Prevent the virus to spred:

    • Follow the instructions at the teaching facilities and study places
      The entrances to our campus are signposted so that we can enter and exit through different doors. Seating in larger halls is marked so that the occupant can keep the distance between them. It also applies that users of study places spread out on the premises. Everything to avoid crowding.
    • Spray or wash your hands
      To avoid the spread of infection - wash your hands often. In the public areas there are also stations with alcohol / alcohol. Remember that there is no hand alcohol / alcohol in the classrooms or auditoriums.
    • Limit your time on campus at the start of the semester
      During the start of the semester, the number of people who have errands to our premises increases. We ask you to limit your presence on the premises and not to stay on the premises before or after scheduled activities. Study places are primarily for students who cannot study from home. Study places can be booked (find booking link in chart).
    • Max two people in the elevator
      The elevators are cramped spaces. If you need to use the lift, share it with a maximum of one person. Remember to keep your distance as far as possible.
