A message from the Executive Board

We are pleased to be able to return to in-person teaching from 15 January 2022. However, there are still some measures in place to protect us and those around us from the omicron Covid variant.

The measures may change again in the coming period. Please see the updates for the latest developments.

We encourage everyone to get vaccinated and get the booster jab, for your own health and that of your lecturers, colleagues and fellow students. And please think of others: give people space and respect their boundaries.

We must continue to work from home as much as possible. In our buildings the health and safety of our students and staff remains paramount, so always do the the Corona Check before coming in. And 1.5m distancing remains important to prevent the transmission of Covid.  

For all the rules and regulations, see the Campus Protocol. And if you are a student and need help, please see what our Student Support Services have to offer.

Your commitment, creativity, flexibility and solidarity continue to impress us. Our staff are working hard on new solutions and measures to ensure that our teaching and research can continue where possible, be it online or offline. We are extremely proud of what everyone has achieved together.

Despite the measures being relaxed for higher education, we still face an uncertain 2022. We hope we can continue to count on your support and look forward to seeing you in good health at some point. Stay strong and see you soon!

If you have any questions, please see the updates on the website, read the FAQs or contact us by email.
