Partial shutdown and stricter guidelines

Read the guidelines that, as a result of stricter national measures, apply to all DTU facilities until 7 February and the national measures that also apply to all of DTU up to and including 28 February. (Updated January 14 after announcement that the partial shutdown is prolonged).

Stricter national measures valid for the whole country up to and including 7 February 2021

At all DTU facilities, the following applies up to and including 7 February:

  • That all employees must work from home as much as possible—except for employees who perform critical functions or for whom ongoing research projects require presence at the workplace,
    That students are not allowed to stay indoors at DTU
  • That students, however, must continue to have access to experimental facilities in connection with final projects
  • That all oral examinations must be conducted online unless it is not practically possible
  • That all written place tests are converted to online, unless it is not practically possible
  • That canteens, cafés, common areas, reading rooms, DTU Skylab etc., as well as DTU Sport and all fitness facilities, are closed
  • That the libraries are closed. Online services remain
  • That PF’s facilities are closed and exam cafés will be converted to online.

The above guidelines take precedence over the following at all times (up to and including 17 February).

Applicable for the whole country up to and including 28 February 2021:

Everyone who moves around indoors on DTU's campuses, sites and facilities must wear a facemask or visor. It is, for example, in canteens, corridors and common areas.

The teaching situation is excluded, be it in auditoriums, teaching rooms or laboratories, just as it generally does not apply to work in offices, workshops and laboratories (however, be aware of the already applicable guidelines for laboratory work).

For employees:

  • All employees must work from home to the extent possible, and as long as it does not compromise critical functions or the implementation of teaching or research. The scope of homework is clarified with the immediate supervisor.
  • All social events have been canceled.
  • All clubs and associations must be closed. Some activities under the auspices of DTU Sport are exempt.
  • Employees are welcome to attend external meetings if deemed necessary.
  • Be aware that teaching and teaching-related activities are not subject to the assembly ban.
  • Events - especially with external participation - are encouraged to adhere to the assembly plan if possible.

For students:

  • Teaching is carried out largely as planned. Some teaching courses have been converted to online teaching—such as the upcoming 3-week period where the parts of the teaching that require laboratories, workshops, etc., will be limited as much as possible.
  • All clubs and associations must be closed.
  • All Friday bars are closed.
  • The S-house is closed.
  • Also pay attention to:
    • that teachers must interrupt teaching if students do not comply with the guidelines
    • that teachers are authorized to ask students who are not registered for the course to leave the room
    • that furniture must not be moved around the premises.

For teachers:

  • Teaching is carried out as far as possible as planned. There is a special focus on teaching in laboratories and workshops continuing physically as planned. However, the upcoming 3-week period will be conducted online. The parts of the teaching that require laboratories, workshops, etc., will be limited as much as possible.
  • Teachers should pay special attention to whether students comply with the guidelines. If not, the teaching must be interrupted.
