Here you will find updated information about the corona situation at Noroff.
Campus Oslo 21 February
In the coming week, the government has allowed for more presence on campus, and for physical campus activities for smaller groups where infection control is ensured. Local municipal regulations may affect this in areas with a lot of infection, but there will be information coming from your Campus.
Students will be contacted by their campus and subject teacher on Monday 22 February, and from Tuesday, some students will be invited back to campus for physical education.
We do everything we can to ensure that your campus experience is good and safe, and therefore there is still a strict mask requirement on our campuses. Keep your distance, wash your hands, and for those who are now allowed to return in the first round - welcome back to Campus.
Campus Oslo February 2:
In recent weeks, the authorities have, for infection control reasons, chosen to keep the campus completely closed to students, and we know this has been demanding for many students. Especially those of you who need special equipment and special rooms. This week we have the opportunity to open up to a few students who need access to campus so as not to be delayed in their studies, and who need access to specialized equipment and special rooms.
In the first round, individual students will have access to editing rooms, degree rooms, sound studios and production studios in a booking solution that we are now setting up. There will still be strict infection control rules for those staying on campus, and there will still be a mask requirement. More information is given in each subject.
Campus Oslo January 23:
Due to outbreaks in the Oslo region, strict infection control measures have been introduced. Access to our Campus in Oslo has been closed for one week, together with the other vocational colleges, colleges and universities in Oslo. Digital teaching also applies next week. This measure is valid until 31 January.
Areas outside the Oslo region:
The Norwegian Government held a press briefing on January 18, and some changes in regulations were presented.
All our campuses will remain open. Classrooms, lab areas, special rooms and machine areas are available for those students who need access, as long as the infection control guidelines are followed.
In areas with low infection, we are now allowed to arrange smaller meetings and sessions on our campuses. We are in constant dialogue with local authorities and look forward to carefully increasing the activity on our campuses as soon as conditions allow.
Stay tuned for information from your teacher and from your campus, and we hope to see you on campus again soon!
