Coronavirus: information for students, staff and visitors.

The University looks forward to welcoming students to our campus once again this August. However, Covid infections are rising once again and more people are expected to test positive this autumn. To tackle coronavirus, the government adopted a ‘medium-term sector plan’ on 14 June. This plan aims to keep our schools and universities open and safe; closing them is the last thing the government and sector want. Our teaching will resume as usual after the summer, but it is important to prepare for various scenarios. This process has already started. More information will follow after the summer.  

The coronavirus measures have largely been lifted, but this does not mean that the virus has gone. On this page, you will see the measures that still apply and other information on coronavirus.

Can I come to the University?

Always do Corona Check below before coming to the University. Answer the questions and stay at home if the check tells you to.
