Setup for autumn semester at Örebro University
Together we can make it this autumn. By exercising good hand hygiene, physical distancing and staying at home if you display any symptoms of feeling ill, we can all help to reduce the risk of coronavirus spread.
Welcome to Örebro University! We are looking forward to receiving you as a student this autumn, even if things are not exactly as usual. In order to reduce the risk of coronavirus spread, we all need to help by being respectful and considerate.
Örebro University plans for teaching on campus during the autumn semester. Still, to reduce the number of students present at the university at the same time, a portion of teaching will take place online. New students at the university will be prioritised regarding campus-based teaching.
You will find information on what pertains to your courses on Blackboard.
- Come on time. To help avoid crowding, it is extra important right now that everyone comes on time to seminars, lectures and examinations.
- Maintain distance. In classrooms, we leave an empty chair between us. Remember to also maintain physical distancing in shared kitchenettes and other public areas.
- Study outdoors. There is plenty of space and furniture on the outside campus area to sit and study. Before the autumn semester starts, extra tables and chairs will be available, making outdoors study easy and convenient. Please walk outside between buildings, instead of using the hallways.
- Bike or walk. In Örebro, almost everything is within walking or biking distance. We recommend all students to walk or use a bike to reduce crowding on local busses.
- Avoid lunch rushes. Bring a cold lunch with you or eat your meals at home to reduce crowding in restaurants and the shared kitchenettes on campus.
- Contact Campus Health Centre. If you suspect that you may belong to a risk group, contact or call 019-603 61 05.
- Together we can make it. This autumn, by exercising good hand hygiene, physical distancing and staying at home if you display any symptoms of feeling ill, we can all help to reduce the risk of coronavirus spread.
