Empty bike racks, locked classrooms
Video: The university has become a ghost town
The bike racks in front of the Academy building were empty, the UB was blocked with red-and-white caution tape, there were no traffic jams along the Zernike route, and the buses going to the campus are practically empty.
There are no lectures and no seminars. No graduation ceremonies. No thesis counselling sessions, no study information sessions.
No extracurricular activities or career events. No hot food in the Harmonie cafeteria.
PhD ceremonies and speeches have been cancelled, as have meetings. The Central Medical Library is closes, as is Studium Generale, USVA, the University museum, and the ACLO.
There will be no Master Day, and the Office of Student Affairs cannot be visited. There are no tutorials, and no one-on-one meetings. Finally, anyone who is able to work from home does so.
The university, which is normally so lively, has become a ghost town.
