Exceptional situation due to Coronavirus

Because of the University’s state of emergency put into force on the 12th of March 2020, it is with a heavy heart that Orbis has cancelled all its planned events for the spring.

Given that the state of emergency at the university lasts until the end of this semester, we will be less active in spring 2020. Our board meetings and spring general meeting will take place, but through online channels.

We are going to organize alternative events such as online parties and coffee breaks so that international students have a forum to meet each other in this stressful time. Follow our Facebook and Instagram to get the latest updates on these.

Stay safe and keep updated on the official regulations about the situation:
