Södertörn University has converted to distance education – no teaching on university premises from Wednesday 18 March

The Swedish Government recommends that after 18 March all higher education institutions move to distance education. Södertörn University has followed this recommendation and there will be no teaching on university premises until further notice. This is likely to apply throughout the spring semester. All written examinations will be replaced by other forms of examination for the entire spring semester. Students are asked to stay updated about their course or programme via SH-StudyWeb. Staff and students can access the university premises with their keycards and both Infocenter and the library are open.

Partnerships and networks

Partnerships with other societal actors are at the heart of the centre’s activities. We offer a place for cooperation and interaction between the university and the surrounding community.

The researchers at Reinvent are part of numerous partnerships for research and activities with external parties, at regional, national and international levels. City planners, politicians, white-collar workers, architects, construction companies, property owners, civil society. Everyone has the chance to work together to promote sustainable development in and around big cities.
