All classes, seminars, and exams will be online during the lockdown. The only exception are practical classes, which will still be taught on site. A few exams are also exempt and will be held in the Aletta Jacobs hall. The various departments will issue more information on this.

UB and research

The UB will also close its doors on Wednesday, although people will still be able to borrow and return books. Starting Monday, January 4, special compensation will be in place for vulnerable students; a limited number of study spots will be available to them. 

The Special Collections room at the UB will remain open and serve as a ‘laboratory’ for the humanities department. In addition, location-based research, like necessary lab work, will also continue. The faculties have to determine for themselves which research is necessary.

Events and business trips

Meetings at the university will also change. Graduation ceremonies and speeches are cancelled. During the lockdown, PhD ceremonies will be held without an audience; only the PhD student, promoters, president, and secretary are allowed to attend. 

Business trips abroad are also cancelled, no matter the colour code of the country people want to travel to. The board of directors might make an exception, but only for long-term research for which data has to be collected on-site.
