LU Accommodation requires all tenants to read and follow the decisions made by the Swedish Government and the Swedish Health Control Department. Below you can find updates on changes of restrictions, where to find more information and what LU Accommodation does to minimize any spreading of CoVid-19.
Restriction changes from 9th February
As of 9 February 2022, the majority of the Covid-19 restrictions decided by the government and the Swedish Public Health Agency will be removed.
On the basis of this, the University, starting on 9 February 2022, will implement an adaptation towards activities without Covid-19 restrictions by 21 March 2022. The University must continue to be prepared for the situation to change rapidly depending on infection rates in the community.
In light of the above, the University has decided that
- starting on 9 February 2022, a gradual adaptation towards activities without Covid-19 restrictions will be implemented. The adaptation is to be completed by 21 March 2022.
The following clarifications apply.
- a gradual adaptation towards activities without Covid-19 restrictions is to be completed by 21 March 2022. This applies to teaching, assessment and associated activities. As clarification, third cycle studies are covered by the same conditions as education. The vice-chancellor tasks the dean of each faculty with deciding in detail how this is to be carried out. This decision cannot be delegated further. The relevant student unions are to be consulted.
- permit changes in approved course and programme syllabi for the 2022 spring semester regarding forms of teaching and assessment of study performance to the extent necessary for compliance with this decision. This means that education is to be conducted in accordance with regular course and programme syllabi from 21 March 2022. The decision on changes is made by the officer who made the decision on the course or programme syllabus in question. The decision is to be documented and the reason for the change is to be stated. There is to be consultation with the relevant student union.
- carry out education components abroad to the extent that these are deemed possible to conduct safely based on any travel restrictions and while taking into consideration the rules, regulations and recommendations of the receiving country and higher education institution that relate to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
- receive students from other countries for education at Lund University to the extent possible while taking into consideration any travel restrictions.
LU Accommodation strongly advice against spreading any rumours regarding people who might or might not have CoVid-19 and their behaviour since the rumours in themselves might not represent the reality of the situation.
Please make sure to minimize contact. If you are sick it is not advisable to be present if a fault needs to be fixed.
LU Accommodation currently has less staff at the office and therefore cannot keep the phone lines open for the time being. We do our best to answer your queries through email and zoom as soon as we can.
Thank you for your patience and your efforts in getting through this pandemic!

Living in shared accommodation
If someone in your corridor seems to be ill, be a good friend and ask if there is anything you can help them with. Maybe they can’t shop for food or need some other kind of assistance. You are most welcome to contact your landlord with any questions or to seek advice. They are there to support you and your neighbors. If anyone in the corridor is being treated badly and it cannot be sorted out amongst residents, you have to ask for help.
If anything happens in your corridor that makes you feel uncomfortable, you have to contact LU Accommodation office. If it is after office hours you can contact the security office; +46 (0)46-222 08 00.
