FAQ about coronavirus and ITU

If you are infected with COVID-19 you need to be at home and self-isolate. What is also important is that you contact SAP as soon as possible.

We will need to talk to you about your close contacts at ITU and where you have stayed at ITU.

Please call SAP on this number: +45 30 66 61 84 or send an email to sap@itu.dk. Please keep your phone close, because we need to be able to reach you.

Yes. When you leave a room you must ensure that the room is aired out, and that contact surfaces, such as tables, chairs, door handles, etc. are disinfected.

In each teaching and meeting room you can find wipes with disinfectant.

Yes, starting from Thursday, October 29, everyone at ITU needs to wear face masks in all indoor public spaces. This means that you are no longer allowed to enter ITU Campus without a face mask.

You should wear the face mask until you sit down as you have already been practicing when visiting Analog and the Canteen. You should now also wear a mask in atrium, on the balconies and at the second floor of Emil Holms Kanal. You do not have to wear a mask in the office wings and on the third and fourth floor of Emil Holms Kanal.

If you have forgotten to bring a face mask, you can buy one at the Information Desk. 

Remember that even though you are wearing a face mask, you still need to keep a one-meter distance between yourself and others at all time!

Some students feel nervous about coming to ITU for lectures and study related work. Even though COVID-19 is still very much a factor in everyday life, Denmark hasn’t shut down. Workplaces, city-life and educational institutions are still open, though restrictions have been made.

ITU have moved a lot of courses online, but we still also have lectures at ITU and students working here. This is possible because we have made a set-up where it is possible to go to lectures and use ITU while keeping a safe distance. We have hand sanitizer stands at every entrance and they are located at several key locations on each floor.

If an incident occur with a student who has tested positive with COVID-19, ITU will work fast to track down the close contacts at ITU.

Following all these guidelines and recommendations makes it possible to still have students coming to ITU. 

Due to COVID-19 it has been necessary to move a lot of our courses online. But not all courses are online. We still host lectures at ITU, all in accordance with the general recommendations for health and safety.

For all courses that take place at ITU it is necessary to mention that the teacher is not required to be able to share his lecture online or present anything digital.

As the lecture is located at ITU, the physical presence can be important for keeping up with the course. Should you miss out on some lectures due to COVID-19, as in any other case, it is a good idea to stay in contact with fellow students for important information and updates.

If you miss out on too many lectures and knowledge due to special circumstances, you can consider applying for an exemption. Read more about how to apply for an exemption.

You can access campus still. Remember your access card. Before entering please read the guidelines for health and safety in relation to COVID-19.

The ban for gatherings (forsamlingsforbuddet) do not apply to lectures or other activities related to teaching at universities according to a set of specific guidelines for universities.

However, everyone should be able to maintain a one-meter distance between each other at all times no matter the size of the class.

Then you need to stay at home. If you are being tested for COVID19 you also need to stay at home until hopefully you receive a negative test result.

In the Autumn semester 2020 you will experience a mix og physical and online teaching at ITU. You can see which of your classes that have moved online in TimEdit
