Government coronavirus measures tightened: work at home

19 July 2021

As of 19 July 2021, the advice to work from home will again apply unless you have no other choice.

What does this mean if you work at the university? Research, teaching and business-critical processes have to continue – in our buildings too. Lab or library research, for example, therefore continue to be possible. Our on-campus teaching will also continue within the scope of the existing rules and safety regulations. This also means that business-critical processes will continue in our buildings (e.g. the work of janitors and security staff). 

Campus Protocol and Corona Check

The safety guidelines from the Netherlands National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), for instance on hygiene and 1.5-metre distancing, apply to anyone working or studying on university premises. For the details, see the Campus Protocol. You are allowed but not obliged to wear a face mask in our buildings.

Always do the Corona Check before coming to work or study at the university!

Work from home

The rule is: work from home if the exceptions above do not apply to you. If you belong to a particular (vulnerable) group, if you think you can only do your work onsite or if you have a special request, please contact your manager. If you want to come to our buildings, you will first need permission from your manager (and will have to register for some locations). Students should contact their study adviser.

Government policy prevails

On 12 July we announced that we are preparing for flexible working: partly at home and partly at the university. Given the new government policy, this will not be possible. We will carry on preparing our policy and will return to it once government policy allows.
