This page gives the latest information about the implications of the coronavirus for students, staff members, prospective students, and others affiliated with the UG.

Latest information (short version)

Starting 17 January the UG will be partially open again. Our goal is to return to as much on-site education as possible with the start of the next block (3). For the remaining education in block 2, this can be done on-site or online.

For on-site education the following rules apply in the coming period:

  • Wearing a medical face mask (type II-R) is mandatory, both when moving through the building and when sitting down.
  • The maximum group size is 75 people per room
