Frequently asked questions about on campus and online teaching
We aim for all teaching to take place on campus. However, only a maximum number of 75 students is allowed per lecture hall. At the Faculty of Humanities this limitation mostly affects the lectures. A study programme may also offer online teaching for groups under 75 students as an exception.
You will be informed by your study programme during the introductory meeting (first year BA and MA students) or by your lecturer via Brightspace (all other students), of which classes will take place (partly) online. Please keep a close eye on information provided by your study programme (via your uMail) and MyTimetable.
Should this occur, if possible the study programmes will provide a recording of the class prior to or after the class.
Does it concern classes with compulsory attendance? You then have the option to reserve a study place to follow your online class there. You can make a reservation up to one day in advance. For more information on study places please visit the university website.
If you are still self-quarantined when your classes start, you can consult Brightspace to check if the course offers an online option or if a recording is available. Does it concern classes with compulsory attendance? Please contact the lecturers to discuss alternative options. Please also inform your coordinator of studies of your situation.
You may shorten the period of quarantine by taking a test with the municipal health service (GGD) after 5 days.
The larger study programmes offer an online option. If this applies to you then you have received more information from your study programme. If the introductory meeting takes place on campus only, please contact your coordinator of studies.
When you have to quarantine, you notify your lecturer of your absence during class. Please check Brightspace on how to notify your absence. You make agreements with your lecturer about another form of teaching. You may shorten the period of quarantine by taking a test with the municipal health service (GGD) after 5 days.

It is not possible to appeal to online teaching due to housing problems. In principle all teaching takes place on campus. For that reason, there is no standard option to choose for all teaching online.
Students have to arrange housing themselves. To help you on your way you can find several tips on our website.
In principle all teaching takes place on campus. The university is doing the utmost to keep teaching on campus safe. Read what measures the university has taken to ensure a safe teaching environment in the Campus Protocol.
Please adhere to the precautionary measures and keep your distance from people who are sick. If you experience any health issues, especially an elevated temperature or respiratory symptoms, please contact your general practitioner. Also check the advice from the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM).
Are you part of a vulnerable group? Please contact your coordinator of studies. If you have legitimate reasons not to attend classes (with compulsory attendance) on campus, you can request a statement from Fenestra stating that it is too risky for you to attend classes on campus. After this, your programme will contact you about how they could accomodate your wishes.
We ask our students and staff members to take a (preventive) self-test twice a week, or at least on the days you come to the university. You can order free self-tests from zelftestonderwijs.nl
We also encourage our students and staff members to get a preventive PCR-test in the weekend with the municipal health service (GGD). This PCR-test is more reliable than a self-test and you can get tested even if you do not have any symptoms. To make an appointment go to www.coronatest.nl or call 0800-1202.
We urge our students and staff to make use of these options – this will increase the safety of your fellow students, lecturers and colleagues. Self-tests and PCR tests are not compulsory.
We encourage everyone to get the vaccine. The municipal health service (GGD) offers special walk-in hours where you can get first your vaccination without an appointment. Students and staff members in Leiden can go to the GGD Hollands-Midden, students and staff members in The Hague to GGD Haaglanden.
For more information on vaccination against the coronavirus go to the website of the Dutch government.
