KTH is adapting its facilities and operations in order to resume on-campus education for the autumn 2020 semester. Students are gradually being provided access to all KTH premises in August.
• Introduction period for new students is being modified with more digital events. • Teaching that would normally gather many students in one lecture hall is being modified with alternative formats, including digital and small-group teaching.
What to expect
A range of modifications on campus are being 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
As Sweden's Public Health Agency has not recommended wearing masks, few people here wear them. 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

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.
