New decision about the spring semester: more information will be published shortly

Extended change of recommendations

Due to new stricter recommendations for the Stockholm region from the Public Health Agency since October 30 temporary changes in KTH’s recommendations have been introduced. These changes have now been extended until December 31, 2020. 

If there are no scheduled on-campus activities students are advised to study at home and avoid travelling to campus.

KTH’s buildings are open but limitations regarding access including opening hours may be issued. Information from KTH Library  and KTH Entré .

KTH operations are not affected by the governments’ proposal of limiting public meetings to eight people.

Help to reduce the spread of infection

  • Keep a distance from others and avoid crowding.
  • Follow the instructions on the premises.
  • Do not move furniture around in classrooms and other rooms where arrangements have been made to create a safer environment. 
  • Stay at home if you feel the least bit sick and if you live in the same household as someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. If you start to have symptoms when you are on campus it is important that you immediately go home.
  • Opt for means of transport other than public transit if possible and avoid rush hours
