Some essential lessons and practical labs will continue during this lockdown, though
All Rijksuniversiteit Groningen buildings are officially closed until Monday 18 January due to the lockdown, reports OOGTV. All lectures, tutorials and exams are to take place online, with the exception of practical training, that will be done on-location, but in a socially distanced manner.
An exception has also been made for a number of exams, which will still take place in the orange hued hell of the the Aletta Jacobshall. Location-based research, such as in the UMCG labs, can also continue. The faculties themselves are determining which research falls under this.
The University Library has also closed its doors. Borrowing and returning books is still possible for those that need it. From Monday 4 January a limited number of study places will be available for students that cannot study elsewhere: students should speak to their academic advisor to reserve a spot.
Graduation ceremonies and inaugural lectures are also now canceled. PhD defenses and promotions may only have the doctoral candidate, (co-) supervisor, the Chairm and secretary physically present. Business trips abroad are also out of the question for the time being.
