Stockholm University is gradually opening up for campus activities, to a very limited extent initially. Current information can be found on the main website of the university: su.se/coronavirus (opens in a new window).

On keeping physical distance

The university has worked on making it possible for students and staff.to maintain physical distance Among other things, not too many people should be in the lecture halls at the same time.

Södra huset at Frescati, where Svefler teaches, has had its classrooms, as well as its corridors  refurnished and it has clearly signposted walkways so that everyone can keep their distance. It is very important that everyone respects these signs.

The Svefler Department is locked on Fridays (and weekends) during the semester (see opening hours). Contact with teachers and student offices should primarily take place digitally.

We have severely limited the number of seats in our own classrooms and will take action if there are too many people at the same time in the corridors.

Information about teaching and examinations in September and October can be found in the schedule for each individual course, from 15 September.

What should I do if the lavatories do not look clean?

Use another lavatory and tell your teacher, who will report it.

Are safety masks available at the Uni?
