Education in times of Corona

Until the summer holidays, teaching takes place partly online and partly in small groups with students and lecturers at one of our locations. Every student is entitled to education on location at least once per week, depending on study progress and individual situation. From the next academic year onwards, the national situation permitting, increased educational activities on location will again be possible.

Below you can check which activities will always take place on location.

All our buildings are open but due to the 1.5 metre measure we can use about 40% of our normal capacity in the buildings, on average. 
So most education will still take place online. For this reason, after consultation with the deans, scheduling staff and the central participation bodies, we have decided to divide the locations and rooms into clusters for the new academic year. Institutes, service departments and research centres will make joint use of one cluster of locations. In this way, students and staff will be more often present at their familiar locations.

Grouping of clusters:

Cluster locations Museumpark, Wijnhaven 99-101, Wijnhaven 103-105 and Wijnhaven 107

Use of Satellite locations
The satellite locations with which we collaborate on location, such as Bluecity, Galatestraat, Rotterdam Science Tower and Wijnstraat, will also be put back into use in accordance with existing agreements with institutes, research centres and CoEs. These only have one functionality: conversion from online to offline education. The exception to the rule is the sustainability factory in Dordrecht which can also be used for graduation and educational activities in practical workplaces, small-scale education 1st year students and 1 on 1 guidance of students. For the Sports Centre EUR the rules of the Erasmus University apply.

Activities aimed at teaching and guiding students take place on location.

For all other work, we still mainly work at home. As of 31 May, meetings on location are permitted (see also the question below about meetings and assemblies). Employees who want to work on location can discuss this with their director.

From 31 May onwards, staff meetings can again be organised at our locations. These are work-related meetings (attendance is mandatory) and non-work-related activities (attendance is voluntary). For work-related meetings, always consult your manager if you cannot attend one. Non-work-related activities include year-end or informal meetings. In a meeting room, of course, you should be able to keep at a 1.5 metre distance, and when travelling in a building, you should always wear a face mask. The maximum group size for this type of activity is determined by the size of the meeting room and application of the 1.5 metre rule but is never more than 75 people.

In the case of external activities not organised by RUAS, for example a course at another location, the organiser's measures apply.
