Guidelines for health and safety in relation to COVID-19

The university is continuously monitoring the latest advice and recommendations from the Danish Health Authority, and we will update the guidelines on this page regularly.

Taking precautions is the key to everyone’s health. We therefore expect that everyone working and studying on campus will conform to the health and safety measures – i.e. respecting physical distancing requirements and keeping good hand hygiene – for the sake of everyone’s safety.

Opening hours, access, and level of service

We are back to normal opening hours with access to campus 24/7.  

Entering ITU campus

Still following the general guidelines of the Danish Health Authorities we recommend all coming to ITU to either have the vaccine or test regularly, even though it is no longer a requirement to have a valid corona passport for entering the ITU Campus.

Not all students and staff are vaccinated yet, and we all need to show consideration.


When arriving at ITU, you must wash or disinfect your hands. Please wash or disinfect your hands on a regular basis during the day.

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 – cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, headache, or sore throat – you should stay at home. If the symptoms appear while you are staying at ITU, you should leave campus immediately, get tested and self-isolate.

We have increased the level of cleaning to mitigate the disease. 

High-touch surfaces – e.g. tables, doorknobs, light switches, railings, toilets, water taps, sinks etc. – will be cleaned twice a day in all the common areas which are in use. Tables which are only used by one employee will be cleaned once a day. 

You are expected to tidy up before leaving the area you have used.
Dispensers with alcohol hand sanitizer are placed in each end of the floors and in each end of the atrium.

If you use the labs you must follow the cleaning instructions in the lab. Read more here
