Nyenrode Business University and the lockdown

All educational activities at the locations in Amsterdam and Breukelen will take place online through March 2, 2021.

Lectures, courses, master classes and other educational activities where physical presence is strictly necessary are postponed. In case of postponement, program management will communicate a new date.

We also follow the guidelines of the national government with regard to working from home. This means that our employees only work at Nyenrode if they have a program- or location-related task.

Locations closed

Both locations are closed. The facilities of the Breukelen campus are closed. The Albert Heijn and de Rooij buildings are only accessible for necessary work. Visitors to the Breukelen location are asked at the entrance for the reason of their visit.


Books can only be picked up by appointment at the library in Amsterdam and Breukelen. The data stream can also be used by appointment. Schedule appointments via library@nyenrode.nl.

Advice and measures

Nyenrode follows the advice and guidelines of the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and Enviroment (RIVM), Municipal Health Service Utrecht (GGD Utrecht), Municipal Health Service Amsterdam (GGD Amsterdam) and the travel advice from the Ministery of Foreign Affairs. The main measures we will take are:

  • The exams take place online. Campus students in Breukelen can take an online exam in a cubicle if necessary and in coordination with program management.
  • Following the teaching, ceremonial gatherings such as promotions, inaugural lectures and graduation ceremonies take place online or are postponed until further notice.
  • All trips abroad are postponed until further notice.

Joint responsibility

We realize that these strict measures can be drastic. Earlier this spring we showed that the Nyenrode community can do this. By working together, helping each other and being there for each other when the going gets tough. We trust that these measures will contribute to reducing the coronavirus.
