Corona/Covid-19 and the autumn semester 2021

Information for students at the Department of Sociology

Lund University is now an organisation without covid-19 restrictions

As of 1st November, the University returns to being an organisation without limitations imposed by Covid-19 restrictions. During the remainder of the autumn semester, teaching and assessment will be conducted both on campus and online.

At the Department of Sociology, this means that our premises have the same opening hours as before the pandemic (Monday-Thursday 7:30-17:00, Friday 7:30-16:00) and that the placing of the furniture in the premises has returned to normal.

Autumn schedules will often not be changed, but sometimes teaching will be relocated to campus

Regarding the autumn schedules, these will mainly remain unchanged, ie a large part of the teaching will take place digitally during the second half of this semester. However, the amount of teaching that takes place digitally versus on campus differs between different courses. Please refer to your schedule in TimeEdit or your learning platform Canvas to see what applies to your particular course. Changes can be made at short notice. Please make a habit of checking you schedule for changes just before you leave home.

Some educational activities that previously were to be carried out digitally may also be relocated to campus. Therefore, it is important that you as a student:

  • are able to come to campus when required, and
  • keep yourself updated regarding any schedule changes.

Please note that you cannot expect "hybrid solutions", ie you cannot expect teaching to be given both digital and on campus. Such solutions require extra work for which we unfortunately do not have the resources.

Campus and study spaces

Covid-19 is still classed as a generally and socially hazardous disease according to the Communicable Diseases Act. As an employer and education provider, the University needs to address this. It is still important to uphold a safe and secure campus environment for our students and staff.

Please consider the following advice:   

  • Continue to avoid crowding on campus
  • Stay at home if you have symptoms of a cold or illness
  • Wash hands often and thoroughly or use hand sanitiser
  • Respect the arrangement of furniture in classrooms
