We are introducing meråpent library in Georg Sverdrups hus on certain times of the week from Monday September 7.  Meråpent library (More Open Library) means that the library is unstaffed, and the building is closed, but you can access with your UiO student- or staff card.

The Humanities and Social Sciences Library in Georg Sverdrups hus is open. The other libraries keep their take away library open, but with reduced opening hours. We are planning to run as normal, with normal opening hours for all our libraries, from 10 August, provided the situation allows for this.

«The feeling of being part of something larger» is the theme of this year's Oslo Pride week. The corona pandemic has awakened this feeling in all of us and shown how fundamental this perspective is. This year, UiO marks its involvement in the fight against prejudice and for human rights with flagged buildings and digital events. Join us - all is love!

Remember to apply for absence in the HR portal well in advance of your summer holiday. The application must be registered early enough to allow your manager to plan and coordinate so that there is sufficient staff available to maintain operations both during the summer and throughout the year.

In the course of next week, UiO will allow for more students and staff to gain access to campus, following new signals from the Ministry of Education and Research, and changes in the infection control rules. Anyone returning to campus must complete a 15-minute infection prevention course.

We are heading towards a reopened university but autumn will present some challenges. Over the last few days, an increasing number of UiO's partner universities in Europe and the rest of the world have announced that next semester they will not send out nor receive exchange students from institutions in other countries.
