Coronavirus measures at IHE Delft

This information page is kept updated with the latest information and insights. Following the advice by Dutch authorities on measures to contain the Coronavirus in The Netherlands, we hereby share how IHE Delft is dealing with the current outbreak of COVID-19.

Work & study at IHE Delft

All IHE Delft staff and students are requested to work from home whenever possible without disrupting key business processes.

IHE Delft management, in consultation with a task group, has drawn up a protocol regarding the safe re-entry from 15 June of a selected number of staff, students and PhD fellows only, namely those whose activities cannot be done online. See attached protocol and a summary of the main points in FAQ format.


The building will remain open for staff and students.


Face-to-face education has been discontinued as of 13 March, 13.30 hrs. Education will be given online.

Events, visits and meetings

All gatherings organized at, or by, IHE Delft are cancelled, postponed, or will be held online. We ask that proposed visits and meetings be replaced with videoconferencing, online seminars or through other methods as much as possible, or otherwise be cancelled or postponed. Please discuss these alternatives with your IHE Delft contact person.

We count on your patience and understanding as we update the events on our website with the latest information.

MSc graduation

On 23 April, total of 141 water professionals from over 54 different countries graduated in a unique online ceremony. The news item about the event is on this web page, and the recording of the plenary part of the event is available on YouTube.

Hygiene measures

We strongly encourage staff, PhD fellows and students to take recommended hygiene measures to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, and provide the facilities to do so. We hope that all friends and supporters of IHE Delft and their families stay in good health and we look forward welcoming some of you to the Institute in the future, when the Coronavirus crisis is over.
