The University has taken the decision that the University will continue with online instruction and assessment until 23 August. This means that all our summer courses will be taught remotely.

At the same time, the University is also preparing for our education in the autumn. As yet, it is uncertain what the Public Health Agency of Sweden will recommend, so different scenarios are explored.

The University campus is open for students, but you need to have a valid entrance card: the HiG card. Contact the Reception if you have questions regarding entrance cards. The Reception is open between 9 am and 3 pm.

The Library’s opening hours are limited for the being (see below)

As before, members of staff and students who commute from the Stockholm and Uppsala region or who belong to a risk group are recommended to work and study home, if possible.
