The University of Gothenburg and COVID-19

UPDATED JUNE 5 1:20 pm

The University of Gothenburg is working to slow the spread of COVID-19 infections. This does not mean that the University has closed. On the contrary, it is open, but has temporarily switched to remote studies and remote work. Teaching, research, cooperation and administration will continue to the extent possible.

The temporary transition to remote studies and remote work affects access to the University’s various service functions. Service centers are available as usual by e-mail and phone, but only Servicecenter Vasa is open for visitors. The University Library has strengthened its remote service, but has closed study environments and limited its opening hours. Study counselling is available as usual via telephone and e-mail, or via digital meetings. For students and staff, access to certain premises is limited, see information in the Student Portal and the Staff Portal.

Autumn semester 2020 

Although the government has withdrawn the recommendation on remote studies, the return to campus this autumn will be limited. This is because other recommendations, in order to help reduce the spread of the covid-19 infection, still apply.

Teaching - both online and on campus this autumn
