Special face covering requirements


  • While on campus, students, employees and others must wear face masks or face coverings when moving around indoors. For example, this applies in canteens, in hallways and in other communal areas.

  • You can take off your face covering when seated in a space where there is enough room to comply with the social distancing requirement. For example, in classrooms, exam rooms, offices and communal areas.

  • Teachers, speakers and students normally do not need to wear a face covering in teaching and exam students. However, teaching staff who teach more than one class in the course of a day must wear face coverings when teaching.

  • There may be special guidelines for the use of face coverings in connection with practical/experimental teaching situations in which it is not possible to comply with the social distancing requirement at all times. In these contexts, students must follow the specific guidelines for the class. 

  • According to the Danish Health Authority, some groups of people may be exempted from the face covering requirement, for example if they have respiratory problems. Read more here to find out if this applies to you.

  • Employees should contact their immediate supervisor with any questions about the guidelines for face coverings. Students should contact their local studies administration office with any questions about the guidelines.
