Coronavirus guidelines at LUT University

Current campus guidelines

Our campuses are open to students during weekdays. Students will be able to access campus buildings in Lappeenranta and Lahti with their own electronic access control key from Monday to Friday between 7:30 and 21:00.

On the weekends, the campuses will be closed to students. All previous safety guidelines will continue to apply on campus.

The campus will remain a safe place to study and work if we all play by the same rules and act responsibly: do not come to our campuses if you are at all sick, keep a safe distance to other people, wash your hands frequently, and cough into your elbow.

LUT and LAB strongly recommend that those who are able to wear a face mask wear one. Masks are especially recommended in spaces with large numbers of people, such as lobbies, hallways, restaurants, cafes and the library.
Access to campus buildings requires an electronic access control key. Remember to swipe it at the door every time you come to the campus. This will help us in contact tracing.

If you arrive on campus without an access control key, do the following:

  • Lappeenranta: Send an email to with your name in the subject line.
  • Lahti: Report to the customer service desk in LAB's main lobby.

Campus facilities (classrooms, offices, etc.) are occupied to 50% of their seating capacity. Instructions on the seating capacities are posted in the rooms, and seats not in use are indicated.

Do not come to the campus if you feel at all sick. If health care authorities have ordered you into quarantine, follow their quarantine orders. If you receive an alert of potential exposure in the Koronavilkku app, remember to follow the instructions given by the app and stay home.

Our 14-day self-quarantine before coming to our campuses after travel abroad will remain in force until 31 July. As of 17 June, the self-quarantine policy will no longer apply to members of our community who have received two doses of the coronavirus vaccine.

Those who come to our campuses and regional units from abroad will as of 1 August 2021 follow Finland's national border traffic guidelines.
