This is what the reopening means to you as a student

All corona restrictions are lifted at OsloMet from Saturday 25 September, at 4 PM.

The government is reopening society, which means that OsloMet is also lifting the last of the corona restrictions.

“I am very happy to announce that we are now able to lift all restrictions. Our students can come back to campus full time and the workday for our employees can finally get closer to normal. I want to take this opportunity to thank all the students and employees who have faithfully followed all the advice and guidelines during the pandemic,” says acting Rector, Nina Waaler.

This means that the one-meter rule no longer applies, and there are no corona restrictions regarding study room seats, libraries, events, and student life at OsloMet.  

In the Government’s press conference, they emphasized that we are approaching normalcy, but with increased emergency preparedness. This means that some advice still applies:

  • Get tested if you are having any symptoms
  • If you are infected: Isolate! This is a rule, not voluntary advice.
  • Check out the Norwegian Directorate of Health's quarantine check to see which rules apply to you
  • Close contacts should get tested
  • Wash your hands, cough into your elbow, and stay home if you are feeling sick.

These recommendations also apply at OsloMet. Remember to report to your faculty if you have been infected by the coronavirus.

Instruction during the fall semester

Students at OsloMet must follow their timetable as usual. The one-meter rule was removed from instruction in August. This restriction has now been lifted for the whole campus.  

Some study programs will be able to offer more physical instruction for their students if there is available space in their appointed rooms. No major changes will be made to the fall timetables.

We will be planning for the spring 2022 semester with no distance restrictions. The spring timetable will be available for students 7 December.
