Working from home in the time of corona

The rule for all staff members is: until 28 April, work from home as much as possible.

The circumstances may differ for each work situation and staff member. If you have work that you can’t do from home, discuss the matter with your manager. Also talk to your manager if your work has come to a standstill because of the circumstances. If necessary, the faculties and expertise centres will draw up guidelines to ensure that everything runs smoothly. For general coronavirus updates, please see the corona dossier.


We are trying to anticipate the problems that you may encounter when working from home, but may not yet have an answer to all your questions. If you do have questions, first look at

If you can’t find the answer you are looking for, please contact the ISSC hepdesk for IT-related questions and the PSSC for staff-related matters.

Tips for working from home

Security and working from home

Working securely is particularly important in these times of crisis to ensure that cybercriminals do not take advantage of the situations. Read more about this on the security and working from home page.

The government has announced measures to contain the spread of coronavirus in the Netherlands. We are implementing these measures at our university. One of these is to work from home. We emphatically ask all staff members to comply with this measure and work from home from now until 28 April. This will enable us to help keep a potentially major public health problem in check. Please show solidarity and follow these and any other instructions carefully.
