    Open campus, 24/7 security
    Text: 

    VUB has open campuses, and we want to keep it that way. The security is available 24/7 and patrols the campuses. Through plate licence recognition (on campus Jette with a badge), they keep track of the vehicles accessing the campuses. It is always possible to leave the campus by car, even after the opening hours.

    Emergency procedures
    Text: 

    All the rooms are equipped with fire detectors. The emergency exits and evacuation procedures can be found in all buildings. When the alarm is activated, calmly proceed to the nearest point of evacuation.

    Be sure to proactively check the information on emergency situations. The security is the first point of contact for any incident on campus. In life-threatening situations or need for urgent medical help, you should use the emergency numbers. In exceptional crisis situations, the crisis team meets and decides what needs to be done. They can decide to close extra entrances or to take special measures. Stay up to date through VUBToday.

    The security is here to keep our campus safe at all times. They can intervene when something happens (eg. agression, violence, theft, nuisance, etc.), but you can also report things after the facts (eg. theft, vandalism etc.). They are the best suited people to guide emergency services on campus.

    Security:

    • is available 24/7
    • patroles the campus and student homes day and night
    • has a first aid kit
    • has a defibrillator on campus Etterbeek (on campus Jette in the hallway of building A)
