COVID-19

Welcome to our vibrant campuses!

We are open – and can’t wait to welcome you to our campuses, to experience our educational programmes, events and gatherings.

Your Vlerick experience is going to be stimulating, exciting, thought provoking and life changing. And together, we can make it safe and comfortable too.

From 20 November 2021, until at least 28 January 2022, Belgium is implementing new measures to control Covid. And this is how we’re making sure our campuses remain lively and energetic environments throughout this period – where you’ll feel inspired, re-energised… and safe.

Face masks

Face masks are now mandatory on all our campuses, for everyone – including students and participants, as well as faculty and guest speakers. You must wear a mask at all times, everywhere on our premises, whether you’re inside or outside, or whether you’re walking around or sitting down.

The only exception is if you’re eating or drinking in our restaurants or lounges. If you’re sitting or standing in these designated areas to eat or drink, you can remove your mask. As soon as you have finished eating or drinking, you must put your mask back on.

Hand sanitising

Hand gel is available through all our buildings for you to use.

Air cleansing technology

Our lecture rooms, large meeting rooms, catering areas and bathrooms are all equipped with CO2 air quality meters – and Airsteril clean air technology.

Do you need to show a Covid Safe Ticket?

  • Yes – if you’re attending an event at Vlerick – for example, a networking opportunity or jobs fair - with more than 50 people inside, or 100 people outside.
  • No – if you’re attending classes or visiting us for educational purposes.

Remember, whether you’re attending an event or visiting Vlerick for any other reason, you’ll need to wear a mask.

If you’re feeling unwell…

If you’re experiencing Covid symptoms, are feeling unwell – or you’ve been in contact with someone who’s infected – please stay away so that you don’t spread the virus. If you start to feel unwell while you’re on campus, please be sensible and go home.

There are free lateral flow tests available at reception if you would like to test yourself at any time.

These are the Belgian government guidelines for what to do if you think you may have Covid.

International travel

If you’re an international student or participant, and you’re traveling to and from Belgium, you must comply with the guidelines and colour codes for international travel.
