Welcome back!

Thursday 25 Mar 21
We are opening the doors to DTU Library at 10.00 on Tuesday, 6 April 2021 - with restrictions

It is with great pleasure that we can welcome DTU students and staff back at DTU Library, Lyngby and Ballerup Campus, as part of DTU's open study environment.

Negative corona test result required

As for the rest of the university, it is a requirement of physical appearance that all staff and students have achieved a negative test result within the last 72 hours by either antigen or PCR testing for COVID-19.

Take care of yourself and each other!

It is your own responsibility to keep a distance and look out for each other in the library. Follow the health authorities' guidelines for distance and hygiene.

Gel for cleaning hands and means for wiping surfaces are provided throughout the library. Our cleaning effort i general has been increased with a focus on contact surfaces, such as toilets, doors, handles, handrails on the stairs, etc.

- and we all use face masks, when we are not sitting down.

Stay home when sick or if you are not feeling well!
