Start of the new academic year

29 July 2020

The timetables for the new academic year are more or less finalised: from September 2020, teaching at Leiden University will be partly on campus and partly online.

A quarter of teaching on campus

The aim is that around a quarter of the teaching will take place face-to-face on campus, although this may differ per faculty. Practical sessions, in particular, small tutorials and tutor meetings for first-years will take place in University buildings. As we have to observe the one and a half metres distance, capacity is limited. The exact arrangements are different for each programme and building. The programme departments will inform lecturers and students about their timetables.

Safety first

In all buildings, measures are in force to allow people to work and study together in safety. Rooms have a maximum capacity, designated walking routes have been laid out and there are extra facilities for cleaning your hands. Obviously, we are asking everyone to keep to the general guidelines: you may not come to the University if you or the people you share your house with have any symptoms. If you enter the Netherlands from a country or region with an orange or red code, you have to stay at home in quarantine for two weeks before you can come to any University buildings.
