The University continues to ease COVID-19 related restrictions to facilitate a gradual and controlled return to campus.

As of 25 May, the maximum allowed presence of staff in University buildings increases from 25% to 40% of the normal daily occupancy, while continuing to respect social distancing rules.

Access to University premises by external visitors, including visiting researchers or visiting doctoral candidates, is not permitted until further notice, except for external contractors and consultants whose physical presence is absolutely required.

All classes remain in remote teaching mode until the end of the semester on 4 September. No in-person exams can be held on campus until further notice, with the exception of certain exams for students in Medicine.

The Luxembourg Learning Centre partially opens from 25 May. Access is reserved exclusively for University students and staff until further notice. In addition to the book pick-up point, 80 workspaces as well as eight computers are made available. The workspaces are accessible through a ticket system.
