Covid-19 and the 2021 autumn semester
Information to all Faculty of Social Sciences students
Lund University is following the Swedish Government's and Public Health Authority’s recommendations and guidelines regarding measures to reduce the spread of the coronavirus (covid-19). At the Faculty of Social Sciences, the following applies.
Autumn 2021 - both digital and on campus
The 2021 autumn semester planning assumes that teaching and assessment will be conducted both digitally and on campus, provided that the relevant public authorities’ regulations and recommendations allow campus-based teaching.
As a faculty, we do our best to ensure that you will receive education of the highest possible quality, while we adapt the teaching format and our premises to limit the risk of the spread of infection.
Programme/course specific information
As a student, you will find specific course and programme information at your department’s website or learning platform.
Study spaces, computer rooms and libraries
As a student, you should currently only stay on campus if, for example:
- You need to search for information that you cannot access from home
- You need to use reference material
- You need access to equipment for distance learning and examination.
If you need to visit the faculty campuses, collective responsibility for maintaining a safe study environment is vital. It is therefore important to:
- Keep at least 1,5 meter distance to other visitors
- Stay at home if you have symptoms of a cold or illness
- Wash hands often and thoroughly or use hand sanitiser
- Respect the current delimitations of the premises
- Respect the arrangement of furniture in classrooms and do not move tables and chairs
Bookable computer and study spaces
A number of computer and study spaces for university students are available in the Social Sciences Faculty Library in Lund. Please note that these spaces must be booked in advance. Also, please note the library summer opening hours during June-August
Individual, non-bookable study spaces
The Eden building in Lund has during the 2021 spring term offered 20 (non-bookable) individual study spaces. The Eden building is however closed during 4 June - 23 August. Please refer to the library bookable spaces during this period.
Study spaces at other faculties
In case all the study spaces at the library are occupied, more spaces can be found in the other faculty's buildings. The Lund University central website holds an overview of all currently available buildings with study spaces in Lund.
The Social Sciences Faculty Library in Lund and Helsingborg are open with limited hours for students to the extent necessary to allow deposits or lending of books and access to reference literature. Refer to the library websites for further information.
Online support, meet-ups and events - Campus Online is a new joint effort between all faculty programmes, departments and the Social Sciences Student Union. Our aim is to create a meeting space for you at a time when physical meet-ups are discouraged.
Digital examination - all you need to know
The study advisors offer support and guidance in study-related issues.
Student health counselling
The Student Health Centre at Lund University has assembled some tips for students who are anxious about the corona virus.
