Campus closed i Halden and Fredrikstad

All guidelines will be continued through February 17, 2021.

Due to the outbreak of the mutated variant of the virus in the Østfold region, Halden municipality is set in zone 1 and Fredrikstad municipality is set in zone 2. This means that the campus must be closed. Read what this will mean for you as a student and employee.

The government has in regulations decided that the premises at universities, colleges, etc. shall be closed. The only exception to the requirement for closure can be made if students are dependent on performing experiments or skills training that cannot be done digitally, and this is necessary to maintain progression in the study. Read updated information about the measures from the Government. (only in Norwegian)

Practical training
