A safe study environment during COVID-19

KTH follows the Swedish Public Health Agency's recommendations in order to reduce the spread of COVID-19. KTH’s campus is open but with certain restrictions. Everyone at KTH must follow common rules and recommendations in order to reduce the spread of infection, continue to be able to keep KTH's premises open and create a safe study environment.

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.
