Apart from small-scale activities that we are launching on the campus, studying at home will remain the norm. If you have a lecture on the campus or have booked a study place, you can come to the campus. In order to do this safely, all buildings and learning and study spaces have been set up taking the 1.5 metre distance into account, and we are complying with a number of agreements. We would also ask you to take responsibility for your own use of the campus.
We are following the hygiene and safety regulations and ensuring additional cleaning of the UvA buildings.
All the buildings on the Roeterseiland Campus comply with the stricter ventilation guidelines of the RIVM.
In order to properly manage the flow of people in the buildings, we have implemented routing with stickers.
Hosts are present on the campus to help you find the right route to your destination.
Cleaning agents are provided in the work, research and learning spaces. There are disinfection points at the entrances to the buildings and toilet blocks.
The restaurants are open, but work differently than you are used to. There are Grab&Go points to avoid queues as much as possible. Food is packaged as much as possible.
The opening hours of the buildings are as extended as possible. Keep an eye on the actual opening hours.
Any questions or comments? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the Service Point in the central hall (ground floor) of building A/B/C.
As a student, you only have access if you have a lecture or do not have an alternative place to study at home or elsewhere and you have a booked study place at the University Library. None of the other study places are in use. Please note that there is a limit to the number of people allowed in the buildings. We will take measures if things get too busy and the occupancy rate needs to be adjusted.
If you or any of your household members have health issues such as a cold, blocked or runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, shortness of breath, slight cough, a temperature of 38 degrees Celsius or fever, please stay home.
Coming to the campus by bicycle, moped/scooter or on foot allows us to relieve the strain on public transport. Different routes also apply temporarily to the bicycle parks on the campus. Follow the directions.
Use your student ID card to check in and out of the buildings. That way, we will know how many people are in the buildings. When checking people in and out, only the numbers are counted and no personal data is stored. If you have not yet uploaded your passport photo or do not (yet) have a student ID card, you can sort this out now via MijnUvApas.
Before coming to the campus, contact your study adviser, so that we can help you with the route and use of the lifts.
If you are unable to study at home, you can book a study place. Study places are only available at the University Library and can only be used with a valid booking.
Give each other space when passing and moving around in the various rooms.
Washing or disinfecting your hands on a regular basis will help you to eliminate as many bacteria as possible.
Don’t sneeze and cough in your hand; instead, use your arm or elbow.
In order to further prevent the spread of the coronavirus as much as possible, the government has decreed that face masks must be worn in public indoor areas from 1 December. This also applies to educational institutions. Below you can read what this means for the UvA.
When to wear a face mask
Face masks must be worn by everyone moving around inside the UvA-buildings. You may remove your face mask in class once everyone has taken their seat or designated position to stand. When you move around, you must wear a face mask again, even if only to move to another workspace.
Example: you do not need to wear a face mask while sitting down during tutorials, but do need to wear one when approaching the lecturer to ask a question.
Disability or illness
Those who are unable to wear a face mask because of a disability or illness do not need to wear one.
Do not use the lifts. Keep the lifts available for disabled people and goods transport.
You will be nicely on time and not too early if you arrive at the room where you need to be 5 to 10 minutes in advance. Please take into account any waiting time required to enter the building.
At the end of your lecture, leave the buildings immediately if you do not have any other lectures to attend. Don't hang around. This will allow the other teaching to continue unimpeded in accordance with the RIVM guidelines.
Go outside the building and well away from the entrance, so that you do not obstruct other people’s access to the building. Maintain 1.5 metres distance, even outside. Please note that with effect from 1 August 2020, a smoking ban applies to the entire Roeterseiland Campus.
Do not leave any papers, food leftovers or other rubbish after use. Cleaning agents are provided in the work and learning rooms, so that you can clean your space beforehand. Also be sure to clean materials/equipment before and after use.
Follow the instructions of the hosts and help to monitor your own health and safety together with that of students and colleagues. If people fail to comply with the rules, we will report this to the dean or the director.
Don't feel safe? Do you have tips and recommendations? Contact the reception, the Service Point in the central hall (ground floor) of building A/B/C or the hosts.
Stay informed via the RIVM.
Now more than ever, we are relying on everyone’s sense of responsibility and cooperation.
