FAQ about coronavirus and ITU

Since the Government and the Health authorities have lifted the restrictions, we are at a point where we can fully open up Campus again.

See below for the all the questions regarding the re-opening of Campus.
Also remember to keep updated at our communication channel Latest news

 

Access

ITU Campus will re-open fully by Tuesday, May 25, with access to campus 24/7. 

Remember to check the requirements for access to ITU. Find it here in this FAQ.

We can now have all students back at ITU again, and you are no longer required to maintain a distance of 1 meter.

However, as many students and staff are not yet vaccinated, you should still show consideration by keeping a safe distance to others. 

You need to be able to show a valid COVID-19 passport.

Showing a COVID-19 passport means that you can either show:

  • documentation of your negative test-result, no more than 72 hours old 
  • documentation of your vaccine for COVID-19
  • documentation that you have been ill with COVID-19. You are considered immune up to 8 months after your illness, starting from the day you were tested. 


You are no longer required to have a booking to be able to show up at ITU.

For entering campus it has been a requirement to have a booking for a teaching or meeting room.

This is no longer a requirement.

The booking system will however function all throughout May and June, so if you have made bookings these are still active and you can continue to book rooms up until June 30.


Test center

Yes, we have established a test center in Scrollbar, Rued Langgaards vej, where you can get a quick test.

This is to support staff and students in having an easy access to ITU.

The test center is located in Scrollbar. There is no entry to the test center from Atrium.

You need to go outside and enter via the door to Scrollbar at the end of the building.

The test center opens at 7:45 and closes at 14:30.

No, you just show up and wait for your turn.  

You will need to bring your student/staff card and your health insurance card (sygesikringskort).

If you do not have a Danish health insurance card, then please bring another kind of valid legitimation. 

We use a nasal self-test. 

You will be taking the test yourself.

Trained supervisors will assist and supervise to ensure that your testing is carried out correctly and that the test is valid.

The control and registration of your test result will also be handled by the supervisors. 

You may enter the rest of Campus while waiting for your test result.

We rely on you to keep a safe distance of one meter while waiting for your result.

See here for all the general guidelines we need you to follow when at Campus.

Your test result will be sent directly to you via a SMS. The SMS will direct you to a page where you can log in and access your test result. 

Firstly you should go straight home and isolate. Remember to contact SAP about your test result and contact others that you have been in close contact with.

Please read the detailed guidelines concerning what to do if you have been tested positive with COVID-19 regarding ITU here.

Please read about what to do and what will happen with regards to The Danish Health Authorities here.

The test taken at ITU, if negative, is considered a valid COVID-19 passport for up to 72 hours.


General info

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, if you have been to campus during the time of your infection with COVID-19.

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 72 18 54 05 or send an email to sap@itu.dk. Please keep your phone close, because we need to be able to reach you.

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.

Your well-being
If you due to the lockdown struggle with your studies, your motivation and related to this your mental health, please contact our Student advisors. They are on the phones every day from 10-14, except Thursday, where they are closed. You can also book a session with them via this link. They are answering their mail as well.

Illness
Another scenario is that you are ill due to COVID19 and in this case you should also contact the Student Advisors, to go through your options. 

If your illness is preventing you from working on an exam assignment or project and therefore preventing you from submitting, remember that you can apply for an exemption to have your exam attempt cancelled. This applies for online oral examinations and online written exams as well. Read more about Illness at exams here.

Working from home
You might also struggle with the privacy to actually study from home due to having kids at home (home schooling, test-periods, isolation). Here you off course also have the option to try to apply for an exemption. Read more about how to apply for an exemption.

No, you no longer need to wear a face mask at ITU.

You no longer need to keep a one-meter distance between yourself and others at all times. However, you still need to keep one meter distance during social events.

Also please remember that not all staff and students are vaccinated yet and show consideration by keeping a distance and remember to sanitize your hands during the day.


You have to disinfect your hands immediately upon arrival and throughout the time you are present at campus.

You must ensure that your skybox or classroom is aired out, and that contact surfaces such as tables, chairs, door handles etc., are disinfected. In each meeting room you can find a disinfectant, you can use.

You need to enable cleaning and ventilation before your fellow students arrive to use the room next.

We suggest that you select a person who is responsible for everyone leaving the room on time. 

If you use the labs you must follow the cleaning instructions in the lab. That includes cleaning the equipment, tables, doorknobs, switches, keyboards, screens, water taps etc. after use.

Preferably, equipment should only be used by one person at a time. If you need to share equipment, you should ensure the equipment is kept clean and reduce the time spent in close contact.

The Balconies can again be used by students freely.

The thesis offices are still not accessible, since FM is re-modelling and renewing the areas.

In the Spring semester 2021 all courses, projects, exams and re-exams are online. As always you can find your schedule, courses and exam dates in TimeEdit. For project submissions see here

How do I participate in online teaching?
Lectures will primarily take place in the conferencing and meeting platform Zoom, supported by other activities in learnIT. Check the course page in learnIT. However, please be patient about updates.  

How do I get started with Zoom?
On the course page in learnIT the course manager will provide the unique link for the session. But first, you should test the setup. We recommend that you test the system following the guidelines below: 

Instruction to getting started with Zoom

  1. Open one of the test meetings to download the client: https://itucph.zoom.us/j/492786864
    If the download doesn’t happen automatically then use this link: https://zoom.us/support/download
  2. Use the test meeting to check that your audio and video is working. 
    See here how: https://www.youtube.com/embed/HqncX7RE0wM?rel=0&autoplay=1&cc_load_policy=1
    If possible use an external headset or microphone

    In case you have any problems with zoom we recommend to check the zoom support page: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us. See furthermore recommendations and guidelines on cyber security when using Zoom.

Meetings with external participants must be held online if it is possible and makes sense.

Parents and friends to newly graduated students, must celebrate outside of ITU and should not enter the buildings.

If in doubt you can always contact the Corona hotline or check out the Danish Health Authority COVID19 page
