The university says it probably won’t be able to put all classes online. On Friday, March 13, the UG will create an intranet page for lecturers. Scientific research will continue as much as possible.

‘It’s a tense time for our academic community and we’re aware of the impact of our decisions. The UG will do its absolute best to limit the negative consequences for students and staff as much as possible’, the board of director said on Thursday evening.

UB closes down

All the study rooms at the University library (both in the city centre and at Zernike), the Central Medical Library, and all faculties will close down on Friday. Studium Generale, USVA, the University museum, and the ACLO sport centre will also close down.

All events where more than one hundred people will gather have been cancelled or postponed (including speeches and PhD ceremonies). The same rules apply to faculties and departments that organise events. All external events with more than one hundred visitors or participants taking place in UG buildings have been cancelled.

Working from home

Staff have been advised that whenever possible, they should work from home. Employees should discuss this with their direct supervisors. Unless absolutely necessary, business trips are no longer allowed.

Employees suffering from symptoms like a cold, coughing, or fever should definitely stay home and call in sick if necessary.
