Firstly, we would like to thank all the students who have complied our request to vacate the dormitories over the weekend. With their responsible approach, our students significantly lowered the risk of uncontrolled contagion. At the moment, there is only about 10% of our students remaining, most of them international students. Dormitory Administration is, however, facing the increasingly difficult task of ensuring safety of operations: there are no disinfectants and protection devices left on the market, and a significant number of staff had to stay at home because of closed kindergartens and elementary schools, or because of quarantine. Our primary objective is to safeguard the health of students. That is why after the analysis of current information and consulting with relevant expert authorities we have decided to completely close all dormitories. We ask all Slovak students to disperse from the dormitories by Friday, 13 March, 2020 at 10 AM. International students may remain. Slovak students in extraordinary circumstances can contact the Head Administrator and request permission to stay. Any visits are still strictly prohibited.

We thank everyone for the understanding and continuous cooperation!
