  1. General organizational measures


Use of buildings and spaces

Broederweg 15-19

  • In the entire building (where possible), one-way traffic applies because the corridors and the stairwell do not allow for two-way traffic. The walking direction is indicated with arrows and signs.
  • Only the main entrance to the university is used as an entrance. All other entrance doors are exits. The routes and exits are indicated in the buildings and premises. Four routes are possible from the main entrance::
  • Keep left to go to the coffee / recreation room, or to the Senate Chamber. You leave these rooms via the exit at the Senate Chamber;
  • Straight on to go to the aula or room 5. You leave the auditorium (aula) via the emergency exit at the rear. You leave room 5 through the side door.
  • Turn right to go to the toilets.
  • Up the stairs to go to the offices and premises in Broederweg 15 or 19. You leave Broederweg 15 via the stairwell in Broederweg 19, through the exit at room 8. You leave the rooms in Broederweg 15 via the emergency exit that is present in each room, via the fire escape.

Broederweg 19: Only the top stairs to the AIO attic are used in two directions by those who work there.

Inside Broederweg 15, the stairs are only used in two directions by the employees who have offices on the first or second floor. Since the stairs can only be used by 1 person at a time, mirrors hang to check whether oncoming traffic is approaching. In all other cases and for all other persons, only one-way traffic is permitted according to the indicated routes.

  • The maximum number of persons allowed per room is indicated in each room. ruimte is het maximum aantal personen aangegeven dat in de ruimte is toegestaan. This maximum also applies to short-term consultations.
  • The rule for offices is that there is a maximum of 1 employee per office. Arrange by mutual agreement who works at the office on which day and who works at home. If it is necessary that people who normally work in the same office also work at the same time at the TU, then consult Hans van Gelder whether an alternative workplace is available on those working days.
  • At various offices it has been indicated that a maximum of 2 persons are allowed. This still means that there is a maximum of 1 employee, but that there is room for consultation with a second person.
