It is still important to follow the coronavirus guidelines at our university

The police have had to suspend several parties that have violated gathering restrictions in Vaasa recently. The students who gathered to party in the student apartments in Palosaari and the city centre over the weekend have mainly been our foreign exchange students who only spend a short time in Finland.

The university works closely with the authorities and wants to ensure the safety of students in all its activities and to prevent the spread of the virus.

– We have regularly communicated to our students about coronavirus restrictions and guidelines in Finnish and in English. The majority of our students adhere to the restrictions well, and this is about the doings of a small group of people. To protect our entire university community, we hope that students will follow the safety guidelines during their free time as well, says Rector Jari Kuusisto.
