Åbo Akademi University will gradually reopen from 14 May

Åbo Akademi University is gradually starting to reopen its facilities on campus from 14 May onwards.

The opening will be gradual and controlled, in accordance with the authorities’ instructions and restrictions, and in accordance with guidelines agreed upon with other universities and with the Ministry of Education and Culture.

Most teaching and research will, however, continue remotely throughout the spring term.

The Åbo Akademi University management is currently working on a detailed plan for gradual re-adjustment.

“Right now, we focus on three issues: the opening of the University library, the organization of certain small scale teaching, and the return of research to campus spaces, especially that research which cannot be done remotely,” says Rector Moira von Wright.

“Our researchers need access to laboratories and other necessary facilities, but in safe conditions, where we continue to avoid the spread of infection.”

More information about the exit plan will be sent to staff and students at the beginning of next week.
