UiL OTS Labs

Opening hours

Daytime

The building Janskerkhof 13 is open Mondays-Fridays between 8 and 17h. During these hours, the building is freely accessible to all students and participants. The labs are usually left locked. Keys to the labs can be borrowed from the reception at Janskerkhof 15A, in the room directly to the left of the entrance; for opening hours of this reception desk see here. Always return keys promptly!

Evenings/weekends

Staff also has access to the building during the extended opening hours Monday-Friday 17-22h, Saturday-Sunday 10-18h, if they have an XS card. Outside the regular and extended opening hours the building is locked and cannot be entered at all.

For students it is not possible to test during weekends, sorry.

If you are a student and absolutely have to test subjects between 17h and 22h on a weekday, you can stay in the building if you get in before 17h. You’ll need to make an arrangement with the janitors at Janskerkhof 15A for returning the lab key.

Running experiments during evenings/weekends

If you are running an experiment on weekdays after 17h or on weekends, the participants will not be able to get into the building (and neither will you if you don’t have an XS card). You will need to go to the door to let participants in. At these times it is a good idea to put up a sign on the door with your own phone number, and the phone number of the lab you are testing in, so that participants who arrive early can call you to let you know they have arrived. Here’s a list of the phone numbers of the labs:

  • K.09: 030-253 6548 (note: in this lab participants can hear a phone call coming in in the experimenter room)
  • K.10: 030-253 8489
  • K.11: 030-253 8472 (note: in this lab participants can hear a phone call coming in in the experimenter room)
  • K.12: 030-253 1558
  • K.13: 030-253 6374 (note: in this lab participants can hear a phone call coming in in the experimenter room)

The university doesn’t like people putting signs on doors, so remove your note after you’re done, and be prepared for your note to be removed during office hours.
