Sweden raises terrorist threat level

On 17 August, the Swedish Security Service raised the terrorist threat level to high, which is equivalent to four on a scale of one to five. The reason is the worsening situation regarding the threat of terrorism and the assessment that this threat is long term. The increased threat level does not mean you should change how you go about your life, but it is good to show more vigilance. 

The university is monitoring the situation and is in contact with other higher education institutions. There are currently no indications that the university needs to take any action due to the Security Service’s decision, but we will provide information when necessary.    

We ask students and staff to be vigilant, in line with the recommendations of the Swedish Police Authority: External link, opens in new window.

Sweden’s Security Service, Police Authority and Civil Contingencies Agency have issued advice on what to do in the unlikely event of being caught up in a terrorist attack. The Swedish Psychological Defence Agency has compiled tips on how to identify false and deceptive information. This information can be found in the links below.
