As of 30 August, the 1.5-metre social distancing regulation will no longer apply to higher education institutions. As a result, we will be able to teach on campus again in the new academic year, subject to certain conditions.
A number of additional measures will remain in place in order to ensure everyone's safety:
With limited capacity. See uva.nl/locations for all up-to-date opening hours.
Bring your Student or Staff ID Card. Be sure to check in and out when entering or leaving a building.
Check Uba.uva.nl in advance to find out where you can go. You can only book in advance.
We kindly ask you to self-test on a regular basis before coming to campus. Taking a self-test will always be voluntary. However, we do hope that you consider taking a test before coming to campus. This will allow us to contribute to a safe campus and possible further relaxations of the measures by the government.
All buildings enable sufficient ventilation in accordance with the guidelines of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment. Safe use of ventilation systems is a constant area of attention for us.

Version 24 November | This overview will be updated if there are any changes to the guidelines or measures issued by the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) or the government.
Self-testing will remain important. We hope that every student and staff member performs a self-test at least twice a week. These tests can be ordered free of charge at zelftestonderwijs.nl. Self-testing and vaccinations allow us all to contribute to a safe campus and the further easing of measures in the education system.
International students can either visit a vaccination unit on the Roeterseiland campus from 6 to 17 September, or they can get their vaccination at RAI Amsterdam any time after their arrival in the Netherlands.
You will not be required to prove that you have been staying in the Netherlands for at least one month or to have a BSN number.
Is this the first time you will receive a dose of a vaccine?
You do not need to make an appointment for either the campus vaccination unit or for the RAI Amsterdam location.
Have you received the first dose of a vaccine in your home country?
Please make an appointment with The Amsterdam Municipal Health Service (GGD). A special appointment hotline for international students is available: (+31) 020 5555 202. You can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
