Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus and COVID-19, Malmö University continuously monitors the situation and follows the authorities' recommendations.

Planned gradual return to education on campus autumn semester 2021

Based on the Swedish Public Health Agency's new general advice, which came into force on 1 June, Malmö University plans to gradually return to full operation on campus during autumn semester 2021 in two steps.

For the first half of the autumn semester, already made decisions regarding the planning for education and any internal restrictions that come with these decisions apply. For the second half, a return to normal facility capacity is planned. 

For a safe and secure return to campus, the University's teaching facilities will be prioritised for education at first and second cycle level and will initially be closed to the public. 

The following decision applies until 7 November, 2021

  • Malmö University will offer a combination of on-campus and digital teaching. Teaching will be conducted digitally where the University deem it to be appropriate, for example in larger student groups and situations where it’s not possible to keep social distance.
  • The University's premises will not be open to the public. 
  • Conferences with external participants are to be conducted digitally. 

The following decision applies from 8 November, 2021

  • The University’s education and examination is planned to be offered on campus according to normal facility capacity. However, a large part of the English-taught educations will be offered digitally throughout the autumn semester.

Malmö University follows the authorities' recommendations closely and may reconsider the decision if the recommendations are changed. 

Accessing university buildings

The University has limited opening hours and the number of study places on university premises is limited. As a student, you can access several of the university's buildings with your Multicard and code.
