Covid-19 emergency updates

4/11/2020 - New teaching modalities and instructions for access to campus services until 3 December

In adherence to the new Covid-19 Prime Ministerial Decree, all face-to-face lessons will be postponed until 3 December in the high-risk areas. Distance learning will continue and Università Cattolica services will remain open.

In compliance with the latest Decree of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers from Thursday 5 November to 3 December teaching will only be available online for all degree and post-graduate programmes at the Milan, Brescia and Cremona campuses.

From 5 November onwards teaching will, therefore, be streamed live for the Milan, Brescia and Cremona campuses. Lessons will follow the academic timetable available on the iCatt portal and on the iCatt app.

The University is still open and all services will be guaranteed online (with the exception of urgent cases or exceptions which they must be carried out in person) always in line with the booking procedures outlined on the website.

Lessons will continue to take place in person at the Piacenza campus exclusively for students enrolled on the first year undergraduate and first year graduate degree programmes, lessons will be online for all other students.

For the Rome campus, please consult the pages dedicated to the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery (comprising parallel campuses, which will adopt the rules of the local areas) and to the Faculty of Economics.

Upon notification to the Planning Office of the relevant campus, professors are permitted to continue to access the lecture rooms to deliver the lessons in live streaming.

Research in laboratories, departments and institutes, along with access to library services, is still possible for students who can provide valid reasons for access, undergraduates, professors, researchers and doctoral students, strictly in adherence to the procedures in place.

All events and conferences will take place remotely.

The student reception procedures will continue in adherence with the measures adopted in recent months, i.e. with social distancing.

For the technical-administrative staff: in recent weeks it has been decided to expand flexible remote work to minimise travel, whilst guaranteeing essential University services for those present on campus. In consideration of the new government provisions, the use of agile work may be further incentivized, without prejudice to the objective of maintaining the functionality of all the University services.
