The coronavirus management team of the University of Turku has decided that the University will gradually return to more extensive contact teaching starting from Monday, 31 January 2022. Contact teaching will be increased in so far as possible, for example, small group teaching and thesis guidance can be organised on campus. The goal is to return to normal contact teaching arrangements by the end of the third period in March. The faculties and responsible teachers for the courses will give more detailed information on teaching arrangements in accordance with the faculty's practices.
The remote work policy continues until 15 February. The University personnel works remotely if it is possible for their work tasks and together assessed with the supervisor. Contact teaching requires that the teaching staff and the administrative and support personnel whose work tasks involve assisting in teaching arrangements work on campus. This policy supersedes the regulations of the University’s guideline for remote work.
The University's instructions on safety measures are observed closely in the University’s facilities. Masks are used in the University’s facilities. Masks are always used unless the person is alone in the space or close contacts have been prevented with special arrangements.
Entrances of the University buildings will be open normally starting from 31 January. Students’ independent study spaces are in use. The opening hours of the Turku University Library are available on the Library website.
The yellow light stage of the traffic light model for the coronavirus situation is in force on all the University’s campuses. The traffic light model for the coronavirus situation defines the level of safety measures at the University of Turku. The coronavirus management team anticipates that the University transfers to the green light stage of the traffic light model on 15 February.
