CORONAVIRUS INSTRUCTIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

We continue to recommend distance learning until Sunday 6 March 2022. Necessary contact teaching will continue as before.

Our aim is to keep our campuses open so that students can study there independently or in groups unless authorities order a full campus lockdown. We encourage students to make use of our campus facilities and work there independently or in small groups following campus safety guidelines.

Please hold internal meetings remotely and postpone staff gatherings on campus to after 6 March. If an internal meeting or stakeholder meeting on campus is necessary, up to 10 people may take part.

The campus will remain a safe place to study and work if we all play by the same rules and act responsibly: do not come to our campuses if you are at all sick, keep a safe distance to other people, wash your hands frequently, and cough into your elbow.

Our campuses will be open to everyone from Monday to Friday between 7:00 and 16:00 as of 1 November 2021. In addition, students and staff members will be able to access campus facilities with their electronic access control keys around the clock and on weekends and national holidays.

Those who come to our campuses and regional units from abroad will follow Finland's national border traffic guidelines.
