    No more face masks outdoors

    As a Brussels university, we follow the measures taken by the Brussels Capital Region. This means it will no longer be compulsory to wear a face mask outdoors, except in crowded places where keeping a safe distance is not possible or during activities and events. 

    As of 9 June, you won't need to wear a face mask outside on campus. However it remains obligatory inside. As soon as you enter a building, you put your mask on. Keeping a distance of 1.5 meters still applies, just as ventilating the rooms. 

    A ban on gatherings remains in force. This means you're allowed to be with 10 people until midnight, from midnight till 5 AM, 4 people are allowed. The ban on consuming alcohol between 10:00 PM and 5:00 AM will be lifted.

    Students with a VUB-room can check the current measures in student housing here.
