The opening hours at a number of buildings of the Faculty of Science will change due to the lockdown measures:
Staff who must enter one of the closed buildings, or sections of SP 904, or must enter in the evening, need to get approval from their supervisor or the institute’s operational manager. They must also follow applicable safety regulations. To get access to Science Park 904 in the evening, staff need to report to reception in the main hall, and sign in and sign out at the Control Room when entering or leaving the building via the night entrance.
Starting from 15 June, the following buildings on Roeterseiland Campus will be open to restricted degree:
Adjusted opening times: 8:00 – 18:00
All buildings in the University Quarter are open, but access is very limited. Staff members who would like to work at one of the locations need to request this via their supervisor. Students who need access to one of the buildings can go to their tutor to request this.
Adjusted opening hours
BG1 and BG2: 8:00 – 18:00
Other buildings of the Faculty of Humanities and Oude Manhuispoort: open from 8:00 – 22:00
Please note that in week 52 all building close at 18:00.
Study places in the University Library (UB) are only available upon reservation via the Library website. You can find all the latest information on uba.uva.nl.
See more information about opening hours of the Museum Allard Pierson on allardpierson.nl.
At some locations, the UvA has study places available. Recently, the UvA has added 240 study places in campus buildings.
All study places are only accessible if you book in advance.
Please check the University Library website for more information.
The University Library is open and you can make use of a limited number of the study spaces at the University Library on Singel, taking the necessary 1.5 m distance into account and solely on the basis of reservations. You can find more information about booking your study space and the opening hours of the University Library on uba.uva.nl. Only come to the UvA if you do not have any cold or flu symptoms.
The mail will still be delivered in the MyPup lockers. If you do not want to receive your mail through these lockers, you can sent an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your PO box number. Your mail will be stored for you.
The UvA does not have any parking spaces for its staff or students. Only visitors with a parking permit for disabled parking spaces can park nearby.
Any other visitors to campuses and students and staff are advised to park in one of the nearby multilevel car parks or at a P+R car park. The latter option is much cheaper than a multilevel car park or parking along a street in the Amsterdam city centre.
The UvA is following the RIVM guidelines when it comes to ventilation and the maintenance of ventilation systems. The ventilation in most buildings complies with these guidelines. In some buildings or spaces there is only natural ventilation. Where this is the case, rooms will be not be available for use or additional user instructions will apply. For example, in an unventilated archive room you will find instructions saying that there is a maximum of 1 person at a time in the room and that the door must remain open. We are reorganising the buildings as a result of the corona measures. The safety of students, staff and visitors is central to this effort. In corridors and other areas, sufficient distance is possible if everyone adheres to the access policy: you have made a reservation or you have made an agreement with your manager. You can put further questions about ventilation to your health and safety coordinator or send them via email@example.com.
The UvA’s buildings have been organised in such a way that you can move about them while still staying at a distance of 1.5 meters from others. Where necessary, routes inside the buildings have been adjusted. You may have to take a detour every now and then to reach your destination. At the entrance you will be asked to disinfect your hands. Facilities such as toilets and printers are being cleaned more than usual. But we also ask you to be responsible for your own safety when using them.
The capacity of the buildings is limited to about 20% because of the need to maintain a 1.5-metre distance. If possible, work and study at home. View the Corona updates page for the latest information.
Starting 1st of December 2020, wearing a face mask is required when moving through UvA-buildings. You may remove your face mask in class once everyone has taken their seat or designated position to stand. When you move around, you must wear a face mask again, even if only to move to another workspace.
Example: you do not need to wear a face mask while sitting down during tutorials, but do need to wear one when approaching the lecturer to ask a question.
Those who are unable to wear a face mask because of a disability or illness do not need to wear one.
We ask that students and staff only visit UvA buildings when strictly necessary. Please find out whether there is an alternative first, such as a local copy or print centre, or consider using a digital option.
Many UvA printers can be found in the University Library buildings and study centres. In order to use the printing facilities at the University Library on the Singel, at one of the faculty library branches and/or at a study centre, you will need to have a reserved study or work place. Find out what the options are at the location you have in mind and book a study place.
The staff cafeterias will remain open for takeaways of sealed products only. There is no seating in the cafeterias. It goes without saying that catering staff observe the strictest hygiene protocols and all safety regulations.
