Entering campus at Aarhus BSS

Can I enter Campus?

 

All students enrolled in degree programmes at Aarhus BSS have full access to our campuses.  As a student at Aarhus University, you have access to all buildings on campus during normal opening hours. Outside opening hours, you can enter specific buildings by using your student identity card as a key card, provided that the ID card has been activated as such. All study spaces and group rooms will be open for all students. However, the reopening will not change the exam form for the summer exams. Most of the exams in the spring semester 2021 will continue to be held online and in accordance with the exam schedules.

Can I get access to group rooms and study spaces?

Study spaces

All study spaces at Aarhus BSS are accessible. The study spaces can be used by all students and do not require advance booking.

Group rooms

It is also possible to book a group room for study group activities. The group rooms will be made available to all students via the booking system Roombooking. You can access roombooking.au.dk here

Do I need to get tested before I come to campus?

From 1 August 2021, it will no longer be mandatory to have a valid Covid passport to access Danish university campuses. If you are not yet immune to Covid-19, either because you have not been infected previously or have not been vaccinated, we encourage you to get tested in accordance with the applicable Danish Health Authority’s guidelines before coming to campus. This applies to students, staff, visitors and other persons who have a connection to AU.  

Do I have to wear a face mask on campus?

As of 14 June, it is no longer necessary to wear a face mask or visor on university campuses.

However, there may be students or staff who still wish to wear a face mask or face shield, and we encourage everyone to respect their choice. 

Teaching and classes

What should I expect of my classes in the autumn semester 2021?

 

The latest reopening plan from the government makes it possible to prepare on-site teaching activities for the autumn semester. For this reason, we are once again able to carry out on-site teaching on campus, but naturally with an increased focus on the applicable guidelines and recommendations from the health authorities at that time. 

What rights and duties do I have in connection with recordings of classes?

A teacher may stream or record teaching that is part of an organised course as long as you are informed in advance. You will be informed via Brightspace.

Your teacher may also choose to publish recorded class sessions in the associated course forum in Brightspace, to which only you and your fellow students have access. If you as a student can be identified in the recording, your teacher may not make the recordings accessible to anyone other than the participants in the course in question without your consent. The recordings will be deleted after the end of the semester.

As a student, you may not record classes or share your teacher’s recordings of classes that are available in a course forum in Brightspace or on Panopto unless you have the consent of your teacher and your fellow students.

If you request that the class be recorded under the academic assistant scheme, as a general rule, the teacher should allow this, unless exceptional circumstances apply.  

What do I do if I am unable to come to campus due to the coronavirus?

  If you are unable to come to campus due to conditions directly related to the coronavirus, you can apply for an academic assistant, who will  who will help you keep up with your coursework. Please note, if you are interested in applying for an academic assistant, you must be able to document the reason for your needs. The documentation may for example be a doctor's note documenting why you cannot attend onsite tuition. Read more at: academicassistant.au.dk
