Information about studying during the corona pandemic
As of February 25, the Netherlands will reopen and the vast majority of corona measures will be scaled down. This will eliminate the need for updates and maintenance of the Q&A. The questions and answers under the cards on this page are therefore no longer available. Should one or more of these topics become topical again, we will of course reactivate these cards.
We have been looking forward to this moment and are happy and relieved. At the same time it also means that we have to get used to the new situation. The feelings of uncertainty and fear will not disappear immediately. It remains important that we have an eye and understanding for the differences in how we return to 'normal' and help each other where necessary in this transitional phase.
On this page you will still find a page for students with questions, doubts or concerns and online education. Let's stay connected!
If you have any questions, you can of course contact the Fontys Customer Contact Centre on 08850 80000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For teaching and monitoring remotely Fontys uses Microsoft Teams. We have a specific website for instruction videos, manuals, best practices and online training on how to use MS Teams. You will also find more information about working at home using a Fontys laptop (or possibly your own laptop).

Fontys policy regarding coronavirus
Fontys follows the recommendations of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (BuZa) and prepares for possible scenarios. As soon as the RIVM assesses the situation differently, we will of course inform everyone at Fontys.
There is a specific national phone number you can call if you have corona-related questions.
