Updates

Corona update 15 January: UG partially reopening

The measures for the entire university will be relaxed as of Monday, 17 January 2022. For the Aletta Jacobshal the measures will be tightened. From Monday 17 January onwards it will be compulsory to wear a facemask in the entire Aletta Jacob Hall, even while taking the exam.

Face masks mandatory
Wearing a face mask is mandatory when you are in UG buildings and do not speak. Both when moving through the building and when sitting down.
Like the government, we recommend that you wear a medical face mask of at least type II-R. These face masks offer better protection. During exams, face masks of this type are available at the Aletta Jacobs Hall for anyone who does not have one. Laboratories may have different rules regarding the type of face mask that should be worn. Students who are not required to wear a face mask due to a disability or illness may demonstrate this by means of a self-declaration of exemption from the face mask requirement.

Corona update 6 January 2022: exams at the Aletta Jacobs Hall

Dear student, dear colleague,

During a press conference on Monday 3 January 2022, the government indicated that all of our teaching must continue to exclusively take place online until at least 14 January. The government does allow on-site assessment to take place until 14 January. The advice here is to maintain a 1.5-metre distance where possible. The UG is adhering to the measures as prescribed by the government.

Over the coming period, exams will be taking place again. Just as for other exams, there will be two exam opportunities. If a student is unable to participate due to a coronavirus infection, this should be reported to the Board of Examiners. They will then decide if an extra resit opportunity is possible on a case-by-case basis.

We are doing everything in our power to make the exam proceedings in the Aletta Jacobs Hall as safe as possible for both staff and students. The hall will be constantly ventilated, and the ventilation is in accordance with government requirements. With this coronavirus update, we would like to inform you about the coronavirus measures that apply to the Aletta Jacobs Hall. Everyone is urgently requested to adhere to these measures for the sake of their own health and that of each other.

  • Check the schedule in advance to see in which room your exam will take place, and choose the most appropriate walking route before coming to the exam hall;
  • Take a self-test (you can order them for free here) and do the health check before you come to the Aletta Jacobs Hall;
  • Please also adhere to the applicable measures outside and in the surrounding area of the exam hall;
  • Please adhere to the six basic rules of the Aletta Jacobs Hall as found below;
  • It is compulsory to wear a face mask when moving around in UG buildings, including in the Aletta Jacobs Hall. In addition, we urgently advise you to also wear a face mask during the exam, unless this is really not possible;
  • The doors of the exam halls will open 30 minutes before the start of the exam. Please ensure a smooth flow of traffic and enter the room on time and in a calm manner;
  • Please use the outside toilets as much as possible;
  • Please leave the Aletta Jacobs Hall right after finishing your exam, via the most appropriate walking route.
