We understand and share the concerns that have been going around the Maria 01 campus and the country. However, we remain optimistic that we can put an end to the spread of the virus with everyone’s collective effort. Preventing, mitigating the spread, and constant dialogue with our members is of top priority.


Here are some of the measures that have been taking place at our premises:

  • The maximum amount of all persons inside our event spaces are Classroom 10the Event Space 30Arcade5 Arena 20, and the Lars Sonck Venue (previously Grand Event Space) 50. Do note that any moment there might be another maximum amount set by the government or events might be canceled altogether. You can get in touch with us here for further guidance on events.
  • There is ongoing extra cleaning on all risk areas (toilets and public touching surfaces) three times a week.
  • Disinfecting hand sanitizer is available on all main entrances and other central locations.
  • Everyone is strongly encouraged to wear a mask in all public places, including events on campus.
  • Safe-distancing is a must in all public spaces on campus.

Furthermore, you are welcome to check our latest version of “Maria 01 Covid-19 Guidebook: Health and Safety on Campushere that we have shared with all our members.
