All RUG buildings will close at 18:00: with exceptions including long-term experiments, exams, and practicals
Whilst the new nationwide curfew comes into effect each evening at 21:00, the RUG has decided to close most of its buildings earlier, reports the UKrant. Evening exams are to be re-scheduled.
The Executive Board of the University of Groningen has decided the move, now that a curfew will apply up until Wednesday 10 February from 21:00 to 04:30.
All university buildings are to close at 18:00, except where there are long-term experiments, exams and practicals (these can end two hours later). The bottom line, according to the Executive Board, is that all physical educational activities are to stop at 19:00. “We ask everyone to take into account the travel time to and from home”, reports the Ukrant.
Although the Dutch cabinet wants to make an exception for students that have a physical exam in the evening, the RUG has decided to cancel these, and move them it to a different time. “We want to contribute to reducing the number of infections”, says the University.
