KTH is open 

KTH has adapted its facilities and operations for on-campus education during the autumn 2020 semester.

Teaching that would normally gather many students in one lecture hall has been modified with alternative formats, including digital and small-group teaching.

For a safer campus

A range of modifications on campus have been implemented to limit the spread of COVID-19. These adaptations are continuously monitored, and they will be modified if necessary.

• Service counters separated with plexiglass barriers
Floor markings showing where to stand for physical distancing
Signage informing about capacity restrictions, displayed in print and digital formats throughout campus
Limitations on group sizes will vary according to activities and settings
• Designated seating for physical distance in classrooms, labs and lecture halls
• Hand sanitiser dispensers in lecture rooms and all student areas
• More frequent cleaning and disinfection of interiors, including toilets, door handles and handrails

Our shared responsibility in preventing the spread

If you are unwell

Stay at home if you experience any symptoms. If your condition worsens dial 1177 or visit  for healthcare advice. For emergency assistance, dial 112.

If you want to wear a mask, please do

There is currently no recommendation from Sweden's Public Health Agency to wear masks, so few people here wear them. But you are free to wear a mask if you wish.

Respect signs and instructions

The signs on campus provide instructions from KTH that aim to limit the spread of the virus. Please follow them.

Keep your distance

Maintain physical distance from other people, both indoors and outdoors.

Wash your hands

Wash with soap and hot water frequently, for at least 30 seconds. Alcohol-based hand sanitiser can be used as well.

Sneeze and cough into your arm

Sneeze and cough into the bend of your arm or a paper towel.

Don't touch your face

Your eyes, nose and mouth are portals for virus to enter your system. Avoid touching your face.
