Teaching activities on campus

The first half of the 2020/21 academic year begins with the resumption, albeit partial, of teaching activities on campus. Course schedules are available on individual programme websites. Please note that reservation is compulsory.

Mask-wearing is mandatory on campus, both in open and closed spaces, unless working in utter isolation. We kindly ask you to strictly comply with these provisions, in order to protect your health and the people with whom you interact daily. 

In compliance with anti-Covid safety measures, students returning to campus will enjoy the following dedicated services:

  • New functions on the schedule portal and in the app "lezioniUnimi" to reserve seats in classrooms. The reservation service for libraries will be available as of September 15. You can access the service using your University credentials, including to change or cancel your reservations. 
  • The video course "Understanding Covid-19 and returning to campus", focussing on the importance of compliance with safety rules in classrooms, laboratories, libraries and all other university spaces. You can access the video with your university credentials. The training also provides information on the nature and evolution of the virus, how it is transmitted, and therapies available. After watching the video, you will be asked to take a satisfaction survey.
  • A diagnostic kit with a lancing device, which will allow you to enrol – on a voluntary basis – in the SARS-CoV-2 Serological Surveillance study carried out by the Buzzi Hospital (ASST Fatebenefratelli Sacco).
    • Collection points and kit contents 
      Available from 21 September at the Caslod points (see the list of kit collection and drop-off points) on campus and in the university halls of residence, the kits contain the material and instructions for taking a small drop of blood from your fingertip, and the informed consent form.
    • Drop-off points  
      Once the blood sample has been collected, the kit must be returned using the sterile containers available on campus. 
    • Method of analysis and procedure for positive cases 
      The samples will be analysed by the Regional Laboratory for Neonatal Screening of the Buzzi hospital  (ELISA) using the same immunoenzymatic method as for common laboratory serology on venous blood  sampling.
      In case of a positive test result, an operator of the Fatebenefratelli-Sacco ASST will be contacted for performing a nasopharyngeal swab.
