Covid-19 situation at NHH

Updated Tuesday 22 September, 2.00 PM.

In total, 142 NHH students have been confirmed infected since the start of the autumn semester.

Due to the increase of corona-infections in Bergen, and in line with the prolonged measures from the city council (in Norwegian), NHH has decided to extend the closure of all on-campus teaching activities until and including Friday 25 September. 

There are digital alternatives in all courses.

The campus will stay open. Nonetheless, students who have the opportunity to study elsewhere than on campus are strongly encouraged to use such opportunities to help prevent infections.

The student association has paused all on-campus activities and closed their premises until further notice, and at least until and including Friday 25 September.

There are no reports of infected NHH employees, but all employees will work from home if possible, and meet digitally until and including Friday 25 September.

One case of Covid-19 has been reported among the construction workers who are working on the rehabilitation of NHH. The case of infection was reported on Wednesday 2 September. It is Statsbygg as the owner who handles the infection situation, and the Infection Control Office that does infection tracking.

  • If you have symptoms or think that you might be infected with Covid-19, contact your GP or the infection control office in Bergen municipality.
