The P building was closed until early afternoon. Those rooms contain many offices of student associations. “We had to cancel everything this morning. Really inconvenient”, says a board member of the Erasmus Student Network (ESN).

The university has since filed a report and an investigation is ongoing. “No suspects have been arrested yet. In the interest of the investigation, we cannot answer any substantive questions”, says police spokesperson Esha Gowricharn. “However, we do ask witnesses to come forward if they have more information.”

“We are obviously shocked by the break-in and sorry that the building was not accessible for some time, but we are happy that the police were quickly on the scene and are investigating”, says spokesperson Lydia Datema. Security, who have been standing guard in front of the stairs to the P building all morning, would not answer any questions.

It is the second time in a short time that the campus has been burgled. Earlier this year, 16,000 euros worth of audio and video material was stolen from the Pavilion.
