Infection control

Remember to follow UiB’s routines for coronavirus prevention, and keep at least one metre distance between yourself and others.
Please be especially conscious of good hand hygiene.
Face masks are required in situations where 1-metre distance cannot be maintained.

You must have passed UiBs infection prevention course in order to enter and use the university buildings.

When you use a workspace, you must clean any surfaces before you start and when you are finished. You will find cleaning materials available at multiple places in the libraries.

During this period, you may eat your lunch in the workspaces. Please ensure to clean up any mess before you leave.

Unstaffed libraries

The Law Library and The Mathematics and Natural Sciences Library are offering unstaffed library. This means that students and employees at the university can access the library outside of our staffed opening hours.
