(Last updated: 4 February 2020, 13:40) Umeå University is open as normal. However, avoid coming to campus unless necessary.

Restrictiveness applies to visiting campus. If you do not need to visit campus, please refrain. If you have any form of symptoms, you must stay at home and follow the guidelines regarding quarantine and self-testing issued by the healthcare system.

Despite this, most of the University's premises are still open. This usually means that doors to public buildings are open from 07:30 until 16:30 or 17:30. For security reasons, the University Management Building and University Administration Building are primarily locked, but can be accessed during daytime through the main entrances.

All students, staff and visitors must take into consideration the guidelines for disease prevention and social distancing when on campus.
