What measures will be taken at the High Tech Campus when you return to work?
As High Tech Campus Eindhoven we are doing everything in our power to make it comfortable for our residents to return to work. Below a list of all the measures that are taken at the Campus. We also call on everyone to take their own responsibility to adhere to the basis rules of the RIVM.
Companies of the following buildings will provide their own measures: Philips, Signify, TomTom, TMC, Brunel, NXP, Shimano, NorthC, TWICE and ASML. Please respect your own company policy.
Parking garages If you travel to the Campus by car, you will immediately notice a change in the parking garages. You will find the general rules of the RIVM and the High Tech Campus guidelines in the new 1.5 meter society. Please follow the signing on the floor, and keep right as much as possible.
A new corona policy will be introduced in the parking garages:
Between 6:30 AM and 2 PM, the stairs may only be used down, and the elevator for anyone who wants to go up.
Between 2 PM and 8:30 PM, the stairs may only be used up, and the elevator down only.
If you cannot walk stairs, you can of course take the elevator.We always make an exception for this.
At the bicycle parking spaces in the garages there will also be an information leaflet.
The Strip (outside) Keep right when walking on The Strip, but also on for example the stairs and elevator. When the population of the Campus increases and keeping right isn't enough anymore, we will also indicate a walking route how to get from A to B. In case of an emergency, please follow the signs of the escape route, and not the COVID-19 signing. Please take your own responsibility when moving around the Campus.
The benches on The Strip will be removed so that there is enough walking space for everyone. We are going to make two large terraces, where you can have lunch with colleagues at 1.5 meters. You will find the terraces at High Tech Campus 1A by the water, and at the Food Lab.
Restaurants The following restaurants are open at the Campus:
Foodlab Opening times: 11.00 - 14.00 hrs Magioni Pizza, Love my Curry and Roby's
All facilities have extra hygiene measures and follow the guidelines of the RIVM. In addition, our employees wear a mouth mask during work to provide extra safety and hygiene in our restaurants.
Counting system in restaurants Also, High Tech Campus Eindhoven and The Strip have introduced a counting system at the entrances and exits of the restaurants at The Strip. These systems count how many people are inside to ensure that there are not too many people inside at the same time, so we can guarantee safety and the 1.5 meter distance.
The following restaurants at The Strip work with a counting system: HTC 5: Brave New World, Okinawa & Tlab HTC 1B: LOKL HTC 1D: Daely / Subway
The locations at The Strip are allowed to let 130 guests inside since these locations are indoor spaces with a flow of visitors during lunch time, and a health check is done upon arrival (QR code – survey).
The restaurants are regularly thoroughly disinfected and cleaned. Each restaurant will have one entrance and one exit. In the restaurant, please follow the route arrows on the floor to find your way. You will find disinfectant to clean your hands. Parts of the tables and chairs are taped, nobody is allowed to sit here. Food is prepacked, and our staff wears gloves where there is direct contact with food. In addition, they wash their hands every 15 minutes. In the restaurants we provide spacious paths and there will be plexiglass at the checkouts.
If you don't feel comfortable to visit The Strip for lunch, we can also bring you food! Check our food delivery service. And our catering facilitator Eurest can also deliver special breakfast, lunch and snack boxes to your office. For more info contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.

There will be clear signing to make sure you know where you can enter or leave the building. There will be also signing on the floor to help you find your way.
We have a special meeting & events hostess walking around, to remind participants to keep 1.5 meters distance from each other and to explain where the meeting or event will take place.
Toilets The maximum amount of people that can be present in the toilet will be indicated by clear signing. We ensure that the breaks of your events are favorable, so that there are no unnecessary queues at the toilets. We do ask for some flexibility from the organizations regarding the program.
Twice a day there will be an extra cleaning round of the toilet groups.
General areas We will arrange our rooms with a fixed arrangement of chairs and tables in such a way that the 1.5 meters are guaranteed. Clear signing will indicate how you can walk to the rooms. Where possible we prefer one-way traffic, so that participants do not have to pass each other. Hygience and rules of conduct are visible through clear signs in the building.

At small meetings, participants can make their own arrangement about how to leave the Conference Center. If you organize an event in the auditorium, our meeting & events hostess will help you.
In every meeting room you will find hygienic products to wash your hands. And if you prefer you can also clean the attributes you touch, such as the table, clicker of beamer. And we also ask people to bring their coats and bags into the room.
Breaks and lunch Break and lunch times should take place at different times than other meetings, as much as possible. This will be discussed in advance with the organizing parties.
The coffee and tea buffet will have the hygienic resourses so that participants can wipe the device clean before each use.
Multi-tenant buildings The management of the High Tech Campus is responsible for the common areas in our multi-tenant buildings. That's why - with RIVM guidelines in mind - we are taking the following measures:
Disinfectant will be available at every entrance of the buildings, and next to the reception desks
Reception desks will be provided with plexiglass, disinfectant and hygienic wipes. A maximum of two visitors is allowed at the desk. To ensure the 1.5 meter distance between people, there will be clear signing on the floor

We will provide the basis rules and guidelines of the RIVM on posters at every entrance
We will indicate walking routes, so you can travel from A to B in a safe way
If the emergency response team has to evacuate the building in times of crisis, the 1.5 meters will also be preserved
House installer Strukton always ensures that the climatic installations (ventilation, air filters and air handling units) complies with legal standards. All climate installations are maintained, perform optimal and are technically in order. The air quality is optimal. There is no recirculation of air in the multi-tenant buildings.
