Information about the corona situation

Oslo Municipality is responsible for offering vaccines to those staying in the municipality. This also applies to international students. Remember to register!

Updated 31 May 2021

We work continuously to balance considerations for infection control, responsibility for students to be able to complete their studies on time, and the students' mental health. All measures and decisions follow the advice and guidelines given by the Norwegian authorities.

Students and staff are asked to follow the guidelines given by the National Institute of Public Health and the City of Oslo. The guidelines may change on short notice. Please keep yourself updated on the current guidelines.

Vaccination of students in Oslo

Oslo Municipality is responsible for offering vaccines to those staying in the municipality. This also applies to students who are not registered in the municipality.

More information about the corona vaccine and the vaccination process can also be found on Oslo Municipality's website.

Everyone is strongly encouraged to register for the corona vaccine:

  • Call the Coronavirus helpline on phone 21 80 21 82
  • Press the number for “vaccine"
  • The Coronavirus helpline is available in several languages and also has access to an interpreting service
  • The Coronavirus helpline can put you in touch with your local vaccination centre

Self-tests for Covid-19

Students who spend time at MF campus may pick up one free self-test kit for Covid-19 per week. The kit contains two tests. Register your student card at the reception desk and get your kit. 

How to take the test.

For more information, see SiO's website.


Some teaching will take place on campus. All teaching, including campus-based teaching, will be available digitally. For lectures, this normally means hybrid solutions, where campus teaching is transmitted in real-time on zoom. The total number of activities on campus is relatively low to prevent many people from attending MF at the same time.

Please find information regarding your lectures and seminars on Canvas.

Library and reading room

The library and reading room is open. 

Please respect the infection prevention measurements when using the library and reading room.



Spring semester 2021, all exams will be home-based. Course descriptions will be updated shortly.

Someone to talk to

Covid-19 affects studies, work, friendship, love and everything else in your life. The Chaplains at MF are available if you want someone to talk to. You can talk with them about everything that life holds, even its challenges and problems. They have a duty of confidentiality and are happy to meet you.
