Covid-19 information from the department

Lund University and the Department of Human Geography follow the Swedish Government's and Public Health Authority’s recommendations and guidelines regarding measures to reduce the spread of the coronavirus Covid-19.

A digital 2021 spring semester 

Due to the current spread of covid-19 in Sweden, teaching is right now carried out using digital tools (online). Teaching that needs to be campus-based is conducted in adapted forms in order to follow the recommendations to reduce spread of infection. 

We are striving to ensure that all courses will have campus-based elements again as soon as possible, but expect that the whole 2021 spring semester will be carried out mainly online.

We do our best to ensure that you will receive education of the highest possible quality, while we adapt the teaching format and our premises to limit the risk of the spread of infection.

Teaching and assessments are conducted digitally as far as possible with no physical attendance on the University premises. Social distancing must be followed according to the Public Health Agency's regulations, general advice and recommendations.

Stricter restrictions (Update 18 March)

The Lund University vice chancellor has decided that as of 18 March, all activities that are not necessary to carry out with a physical presence on the University's premises are to be carried out digitally. This decision applies until further notice.

The department follows this decision and other guidelines, regulations, general advice and recommendations for preventing and mitigating the spread of Covid-19.

The new decision entails that access to study places is increased somewhat compared to previous decisions taken in December 2020 and January 2021, in which access was strongly limited.

Meanwhile, the spread of infection must continue to be avoided as far as possible. Students are therefore encouraged to continue studying primarily from home, and only to be on campus when it is necessary. 

For more course- or programme specific information, please visit the course page on Canvas.

Study spaces, computer rooms and libraries

As a student, you should only stay on campus if, for example:

  • you need to search for information that you cannot access from home
  • you need to use reference material
  • you need access to equipment for distance learning and examination.

A limited number of computer and study spaces for students are currently available in the Eden building and the Social Sciences Faculty Library. Please note that the spaces must be booked in advance. The faculty intend to open more study places gradually and information will then be published on this page. In order to create a safer environment, the distance of 1.5 meters between people is increased to 2 meters on the recommendation of the Skåne infection control authority, Smittskydd Skåne.

Book your computer or study seat at Eden or the library on the library website

Take care of each other. Together, we can help each other! 

The 2021 autumn semester

Due to the ongoing coronavirus situation, your education may be conducted in a different way than normally at the start of the 2021 autumn semester. We are currently waiting for a new decision to be made regarding how studies should be conducted during autumn 2021. This is expected to be announced during the 2021 spring semester.
