The university finds it important that students and staff are offered a safe environment. Read here about the safety measures in place and what you should do in case of emergencies or other incidents.
University’s emergency number temporarily changed
Due to a technical fault, the university’s emergency landline number (+31 71 527 6666) is currently unavailable. If you need to call for help, call the alternative emergency number instead: +31 32 033 1343 (available 24/7, also for students and staff who are abroad). Please note that this number can only be reached from a mobile phone.
We are doing all we can to ensure you will be able to reach us again soon on the usual emergency number. Our apologies for the inconvenience.
If you are following a programme that involves practical sessions, laboratory work, working with people or spending time outdoors, additional precautionary measures might be required. If your faculty or programme has an additional tab on this page, make sure to read it carefully.

International students: beware of telephone scams
Police are warning international students, particularly those from China, about phone calls from scammers posing as employees of banks or governement agencies.
The scammer will claim you need to move your money to another bank account, or that you are being criminally investigated and must break all contact with others by e.g. switching off your phone and not going home or to class. They will then tell your parents or family members that you have disappeared and demand a ransom. As your family are unable to reach you, they might believe the scammer.
