However, distance education is normally carried out, according to the relevant decision by the Senate of the Technical University of Crete. In addition, with a recent decision of the Senate, taken during the 02.04.2020 meeting by teleconference, the academic calendar for the Spring Semester has been modified and the distance education class schedule will be carried out normally during the following days:

At the same time, due to the extension of the temporary traffic restriction, with the publication of a new Joint Ministerial Decision, the transfer to and from the TUC Campus up to April 27, 2020, 6:00am is permitted only to TUC employees with proper documentation.
Finally, we recommend to the entire TUC Community the frequent monitoring of the website of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), as well as the strict adherence to personal preventive and hygiene measures, in accordance to ECDC guidelines.
