Updated April 06th, 2021 (introduction, about classes).
All classes will be online during the period March 25th-April 14th 2021. The Library and Study Halls will remain open, but please see Canvas for how to reserve a seat in the Study Hall. In addition, the following applies:
- Reminder to use facemask in common areas at all times (see below)
- It is our common responsibility to maintain at least 1m distance to other people at all times. Wonder how long a meter is? Please ask the reception.
- It is not permitted to loiter in hallways and other enclosed spaces. You may book group rooms via Skedda and use classrooms that are not in use for study halls or if you need to follow a digital lecture.
The library and study halls are open, and you may use group rooms and classrooms for study groups, as study hall, or if you would like to follow digital lectures. Please see Canvas for information about classes and exams. NB! Please note that the dining hall will be closed from now, and that there will be fixed seating in study halls. Please see Canvas for more information.
Are you anxious, lonely, insecure, need help or simply someone to talk to? We are here for you. Please get in touch with Sven Morten Kjølleberg or Aage Myksvoll. SiO also offers counselling and other health services to all our students - do not hesitate to get in touch. For more trivial advice, you may follow @siostudentliv on Instagram. There is also a free and anonymous helpline for students: https://mentalhelse.no/fa-hjel...
All previous measures regarding distance, hygiene and staying at home when ill or quarantined are still in place. If you are diagnosed with Covid-19 (or quarantined during periods of on-campus classes), please contact Frank-Ole Thoresen or Marit Skinlo.
Use of face mask is mandatory in common areas and going in and out of lectures. It is also mandatory in the dining hall when you are not sitting down to eat. Furthermore, we remind you of the required use of face mask on public transport.
In classrooms, group rooms and study halls we have put in place measures to maintain at least 1 m distance at all times. Thus you do not need to wear a face mask once you are seated. However, it is a common responsibility to maintain at least 1 m distance at all times.
All events are cancelled until further notice.
Absence and attendance
Attendance via Teams will be counted as valid. Please note that if the lecturer uses a code word to register attendance, this must be sent in by all participating students by the end of the lecture.
If Panopto is used for lectures, the lecturer will set the requirements to validate attendance.
Life outside studies
We recommend students to stay in touch within the rules and regulations. Please think through whether you know of someone who might be lonely or alone. Could this person be one of your allowed contacts this week?
