Period 1 and 2: only limited educational activities on location

August 24, 2020


The University of Humanistics always follows the measures relating to the government's approach to the Coronavirus and does so in close coordination with the other higher education institutions and with the municipality of Utrecht and the security region. The measures applicable to Higher Education are unchanged:


  • Work at home as much as possible
  • Limited educational activities on location are possible in coordination with the municipality and the security region. On location, 10m2 per person should be charged for lecture rooms and study rooms, so that one and a half meters of distance and safe walking space are guaranteed.

Employees

Because of the above measures, employees cannot be obliged to come to work unless they really cannot do their work (or substitute work) at home. However, we do want to offer them the possibility, if they wish, to come to the UvH and do part of their work there on location. For education period 1 we see possibilities to enlarge the access to our building a bit: in this period we can admit a maximum of 60 people per day instead of the 25 in the previous period. This 60 is the total of all people present in the building on a day, regardless of the duration or time of their presence, and includes students, staff and guests.

Students

Education at the UvH is offered remotely. Exception is made for:


  • Introductory meetings for the first year students (bachelors, masters and graduate school) who come in small groups on location in the introduction week prior to period 1.
  • (Parts from) the AAV practica that are difficult to organize remotely, in small groups.
  • The education is scheduled in such a way that a maximum of 30 students and teachers per day are in the building for educational activities. Other educational activities with students on location are not possible, study places are not accessible for students.

Events and symposia

The UvH remains closed for events on location.

Education period 2

In the course of period 1, we will evaluate the possibilities and limitations of this opening and on that basis determine the opening for period 2. We advise to continue with as much distance education and events as possible.


All this is subject to adjustments of the measures by the government.


Students and employees will find further instructions and regulations on working and following education on location and online on the intranet.
