Guidelines regarding on-campus activities

The political agreement of 22 March on a controlled reopening of Danish society means that, with certain restrictions, more students and staff are now allowed to come to campus.

The faculty leadership teams will be responsible for prioritising teaching and exam activities, with the involvement of the boards of studies. Rules for access to study spaces and group rules will also be handled by the faculties. All attendance by employees must be agreed with an immediate supervisor.

As a rule, staff must continue to use key cards to enter university buildings.

The faculties will inform their students about when and how they will have access to university buildings and what entrances to use.

Possibility of physical attendance


Many employees will still be required to work from home – at least until 21 May.

By agreement with their immediate supervisor, the following categories of employees may come to work on campus:

  • Lecturers and other employees who perform functions that are a prerequisite for carrying out activities with student participation on campus.
  • Researchers, including PhD students, who need to have physical access to the university in connection with their research.
  • Employees who perform functions critical to the operation of labs, clinics and research infrastructure that require their presence on campus.

Teaching and exams 
in the spring semester will to a great extent be conducted online. However, the faculties may carry out some teaching and exam activities with physical attendance in accordance with specific guidelines.

Students may use reading rooms, group rooms and other student facilities to a limited extent. The individual faculties will decide how physical attendance is to function in practice.

You can return and loan books at all AU Library locations. More information is available on the AU Library website .

General conditions for physical attendance

You must be able to present a max. 72-hour-old negative Covid-19 test. In accordance with guidelines from the authorities, there will be random checks. [LINK – ny side på ve]

Guidance regarding at-risk groups

  • Employees in a high-risk group should discuss their situation with their immediate supervisor, who will make a concrete assessment of what steps should be taken.
