Emergency preparedness and safety for students

Advice to students at UiT about emergency preparedness and safety. In the event of an emergency: Advice to all students at UiT about emergency preparedness and safety

Safety and emergency preparedness:

The university management request that all students familiarise themselves with the content on the website

Sikresiden.nois a mobile-friendly website containing user-friendly training and advice about what to do in emergency situations and what preventative measures you can take. 

Download the website on your mobile phone and gain immediate access to advice about preventative measures and what you should do in the event of a sudden emergency.

However, it’s important to remember that you should always assess the situation and decide what to do on a case by case basis.
