COVID-19 pandemic

The following applies at the University of Borås: 

  • Level lime continues to apply until the end of study period 1 (no later than 14 November). This means that everyone must continue to follow the main rule "Distance when it works, campus when it’s needed.” The planning and scheduling for teaching during study period 1 will largely remain in place. If you have any questions about what applies to your educational programme, please contact your course or programme coordinator.
  • From study period 2 (no later than 15 November), the university will move to level green. This means that the university operations are to be conducted as usual. However, there may be a need in some parts of the university to maintain certain limited measures and adjustments during a transitional period. Your course or programme coordinator will inform you about what this means for your course/programme.
  • The pandemic is still ongoing and the university must therefore be prepared to return to level lime or level yellow if the situation requires it. Be aware that changes may occur at short notice.

The advice to work from home, which the government has decided to discontinue from 29 September, of course, also affects university operations. But as we have decided to continue in level lime throughout study period 1, this means no direct changes for you as a student. However, the university has begun a gradual return to the workplace for employees and students.

Everyone must continue to take responsibility for reducing the risk of the spread of infection in society.
