The University of Luxembourg plans for a full return to in-person teaching as of 8 November 2021.

The University’s special protocol for return to on-campus teaching has been validated by the Luxembourg health authorities, so that classrooms will be used again at their full capacity.

Physical access to classes will be possible for all students and will not be conditional on Covidcheck passes or similar certificates. The health authorities recommend that students and professors use self-tests twice a week. Test kits will be distributed at reception desks. As is currently the case, masks will remain mandatory, with the exception of fully vaccinated professors who will have the option to teach without the mask.

New safety protocols will be used if one or several persons in a class tests positive. Guidelines will be updated shortly. 

The Luxembourg Learning Centre will plan for expanded visitor access. Seating capacity will be increased from 300 to 800, and no upfront reservations will be required any longer.  

“We have waited for this moment to happen”, says University rector Stéphane Pallage. “While social interactions won't be perfect in this new protocol, this is an important milestone in our return to normal life. It will allow to increase the level of personal interaction that is such an important stimulus for a vibrant University atmosphere. I thank all our staff for making this possible.”
