Following the measures put in place by the authorities regarding the evolution of the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19, the suspension of all teaching activities in the Milan, Brescia, Piacenza and Cremona campuses will be extended until Saturday 7 March with the same modalities put into place in the first week of suspension and previously communicated.
The measures relative to catching up teaching hours will be communicated at a later date. In order to adequately plan the rescheduling and resumption of teaching activities, the university offices and all employees will be operational.
Please see below the press release from the Conference of Rectors of the Lombard Universities
The Universities of Lombardy all agree that the precautionary measures that led to the suspension of all teaching activities in the week commencing Monday 24 February 2020 are still in place.
Therefore, in order to ensure the orderly functioning of the institutional programmes of all the Lombard universities, current teaching activities are suspended until next Saturday 7 March.
In the meantime, in order to limit the adverse effects of this emergency, all the Universities of Lombardy have taken the appropriate steps to offer students distance learning methods, in line with the modalities specific to each university. Detailed information is available on each university’s website and is punctiliously updated and shared with all the academic communities.
Each Lombard University is currently analysing the various possible scenarios and identifying the appropriate solutions to be adopted both in the short and medium/long term, particular regarding the organisation of teaching activities.
The current prospect is that all activities may resume on next Monday, 9 March.
Our monitoring of the situation is constantly evolving and will continue to do so in close contact with national and local civil and health authorities.
We will continue to promptly inform all students, staff and citizens on any useful updates.
