On Monday, 23 March, the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts resumed its activities using distance learning alternatives to attendance-based learning.
The situation concerning the spread of the coronavirus has changed rapidly over the past few days. In order to give a degree of planning certainty, the university management has decided to suspend all attendance-based learning activities until 31 May and replace them with distance-learning alternatives.
In addition, all events such as concerts, conferences and conventions until 31 May have been cancelled, unless they are set to take place on a virtual platform.
The current developments require unique and far-reaching measures from our university. We are doing everything in our power to minimise any personal contact with other persons to help keep infection rates as low as possible. We kindly ask you to comply with all of the FOPH’s hygiene and distance recommendations as well.
The libraries of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts will remain closed. Until further notice, there is a courier service in place to deliver books and documents by mail or in electronic form.

For the time being, only employees of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts have access to the university premises.
We are aware that the current changes to the teaching activities and the migration of many formats to a digital platform have great consequences for our students and employees. We are optimistic that, by showing flexibility and mutual understanding as well as solidarity and the courage to break new ground, we will overcome this challenging situation all together.
