Last update: 20/05/2021

The ministry of Education has published the scenario for universities starting the academic year 2021 – 2022. Based on the expectation the majority of people will be vaccinated by the end of August, the one restriction will be a limited group size per room with a maximum of 75 people.

At the start of the new academic year we welcome all of you students back on campus. We will use our campus optimally emphasizing on small scale and interactive education. This means no online alternatives are offered for classes or practical. All exams in the upcoming Academic Year are on campus. It is therefore important that you can be on campus every weekday. If you are looking for a room for that reason, check out all the possibilities over here.

We rely on the Dutch government for guidance in the Covid-19 measures. Your safety is our priority and to help us to keep you safe we ask you for two actions:

  • Check this page regularly for updated information;
  • Follow the safety measures communicated on campus.

Do you have additional questions? Be sure to contact us; we are glad to be of help.
