The speed-testing locations are part of the study of how to ultimately go back to on-site education. The first round of speed testing started mid-January at Zernike; it was the first location in Groningen where people in higher education could be tested.

The pilot at Zernike was aimed at getting on-site exams back on track. The current expansion should make practical education and study spots available. The locations are the Wiebenga building at the Petrus Driessenstraat, which is a Hanze property, and the Hotspot at the Euroborg. The UG, Hanze, and Noorderpoort say they picked these spots because of their connection to practical education and their central location.

City centre

Testing at the Wiebenga building will start on April 1 and will be available to Hanze and UG students and lecturers involved in practical education in the city centre. Students sitting an exam in the city centre can also get tested here, as well as invigilators and UG students who have reserved a study spot. 

The Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health will study students’ and staff’s willingness to get tested, as well as the technical, logistical, and legal aspects of speed-testing at the new locations, just like they do at Zernike.
