Corona measures effective as of 15 January 2022

Before you come to university buildings, do the Corona Check to see if you should come to university buildings in the first place. You’ll find the Corona Check using the gray chat bubble in the bottom right corner of your screen.

  • Classes will be offered in-person on campus.
  • Students who have to self-quarantine with symptoms or a COVID infection, or for reasons of mental health, may follow classes online (but they must inform their instructor before class starts).
  • Instructors may decide to offer classes in a hybrid format, meaning that some students may attend in person while others take part online on a rotation basis. Instructors who choose to do so will inform their students well in advance.
  • All exams and tests will be offered in person. Some exceptions may apply.
  • Do a self-test at least twice a week, even if you have no symptoms. You can order four self-tests online for free using your Solis ID. If you are unable to order a self-test online, you may also collect one self-test from the UCR reception.
  • Wearing a face mask is a condition imposed by the government for the reopening of higher education. Face masks (preferably disposable type 2) are therefore mandatory at all times in all UCR buildings, including hallways, communal areas, and classrooms.  However, in very limited circumstances where a face mask is extremely inconvenient, exceptions may apply (see the relevant section below). Students and employees are responsible to bring their own face mask to campus. If you have forgotten your face mask, you can get one from the reception desk.
  • Always keep a 1.5-meter distance from others. If possible, also keep distance in class.
  • Always follow and adhere to the routing in UCR academic buildings.
  • Adhere to all the basic rules at all times.
  • If you have not yet been vaccinated; we strongly advise you to do this. You can make an appointment online or by calling 0800 7070.
  • Societies are encouraged to arrange all social activities online. Some small-scale meetings (15 max) or activities, with permission from the Crisis Team, may be able to take place in ventilated rooms, keeping a distance of 1.5 meters, and always wearing face masks.
  • If you have any questions related to the pandemic and its effect on your studies at UCR, please send an email to
