Therm exam hall divided because of corona

Because the UT does not want more than a hundred people in the same room due to corona, the Therm exam building has been divided into two parts. The modification should offer more safety and flexibility during the last quartile.

Previously, the large hall in Therm accommodated over 250 students. Now walls and an aisle separate the exam building into two areas, both with a maximum capacity of one hundred. Previously, the tables were 1.65 metres apart, now it is at least 1.75 metres,' explains Marc Hulshof (Campus & Facility Management). We have also made the ventilation suitable for two smaller rooms, instead of one large one.'

According to Hulshof, the new layout also offers more flexibility. 'It sometimes happened that two different groups were in the same room. Then one group would have an hour-long exam, the other three hours. That, of course, caused some disruption. In effect, we now have an additional exam hall.'
