Fire safety work at KOG from week 12 to week 30

1 March 2021

Throughout spring and summer 2021 work will carried out on the sprinkler system at the A wing of the Kamerlingh Onnes Building. A number of areas in the building will not be accessible from week 12 up to and including week 30 (22 March to 30 July).

As a result of changes to fire regulations, it appears that there is not enough space between the ceiling where the sprinkler system is installed and the floor above it in a number of areas and rooms at the KOG. Please note that this does not mean that the current situation is unsafe. The work is being carried out to ensure we comply with the new fire regulations. On the ground floor, the restaurant and the A3 wing, the ceiling will be adjusted and the floor in the A1 wing will be raised using fire-resistant material.

No work will be carried out during the examination period in week 21 and week 22. The Moot Court sessions from week 10 to week 20 will not be hindered by the work. And of course all current coronavirus measures will be respected at all times.
