FAQ on coronavirus on campus and events

Published: 25th February 2020 Last updated: 10th June 2021

We want to inform you as clearly as possible about the measures and developments on campus. We do this by working out Frequently Asked Questions for you. The questions are regularly updated and complemented on the basis of the questions we receive.

We understand that there are a lot of questions about in what form education will take place, when you are allowed to visit the campus, what rules you must follow in doing so and  what to take into account when organizing an event. The page Tilburg University & corona contains all important information about campus, education, working on campus and events.

On this page you will find the most frequently asked questions regarding the campus and events.

The same goes for everyone:

  • Stay at home with corona symptoms
  • Follow the guidelines from the National Institute for Public Health and Environmental Protection
  • Employees work at home as much as possible
To the Government website


Our campus has limited access due to the coronavirus. 

Everyone must follow the guidelines of the government and the RIVM on campus. In addition to the hygiene measures of the RIVM, Tilburg University's guidelines have been drawn up. The rules of conduct of Tilburg University can be found at the entrance to the buildings. The walking routes are marked on the ground. Also note the signposting and stickers that indicate what is allowed or possible in certain places.
