The organisations have been instructed via instant messaging group. Organisations can contact our organisation and administration specialist if they have questions about e.g. how to organise annual meetings.

Studying and the spaces of the university

The new instructions at the university are valid until 23 Dec. Students study mainly with remote connections. In small group contact teaching, the maximum limit of participants is 10 people. The current contact teaching with a maximum number of 20 people can be completed by observing safety measures.

The Exam rooms and group work spaces are open but with restrictions. One must use a mask in univeristy's spaces unless you are alone in that space. Everyone must follow these instructions so that we can keep the spaces open as long as possible.

TYY communicates constantly with university concerning the organisation of studies. If you have any worries about your studies, we recommend you to contact the teaching staff and the study councellor of your faculty, your own organisation that operates in your faculty or subject, or the student union.
