    • What happens when a wave of Covid-19 infections occurs?

      If there is a new wave of infections, we will not oblige students to leave their accommodation. There is a chance that the government will require them to choose a fixed place of residence. VUB-rooms have 1 year rental contracts. It is not possible to terminate this contract before the end date.
