On March 16, 2020, the Finnish government outlined measures to slow down the spreading of coronavirus. Based on these policies, Aalto University will suspend all contact teaching from March 17 to April 13, 2020. As a result, buildings with university activities are also closed from March 17 to April 13, 2020 and the doors between A Bloc and the university have been closed. Even though the university is closing its doors, A Bloc still remains open.
