COVID-19 measures

Nyenrode Business University strives to offer everyone a safe study and working environment. Therefore, the following advice remains in effect:

The easing and lifting of measures take place in the following steps:

Easing from February 18th

  • For lectures, exams, and events up to 500 people, the 1,5-meter-measure (5 foot) and the mandatory facemask will be dropped. A facemask is also no longer necessary when moving through the halls and corridors.
  • The quarantine period after an infection will be shortened to 5 days, provided you are free of complaints for 24 hours.
  • Plesman building, Zolder- and Kelderbar are allowed to open from 5PM to 1AM in consultation with Events (the Plesman bar only by reservation). Fixed seats and 1,5-meter-measure are revoked. However, a corona access pass (CTB) is still required there.
  • Mensa and coffee bar in the NK hall in Breukelen and the catering industry in the Bizzlounge in Amsterdam are open again without restrictions.
  • When exercising, the 1,5-meter-measure and face masks are no longer required. However, a corona access pass (CTB) is still required.

Easing from February 24th

  • Catering locations may open according to regular opening hours. The corona access pass expires.
  • The CTB expires at the sports location. Sports is therefore also possible without restrictions.
  • Quarantine obligation upon return to the Netherlands after a trip abroad is no longer needed.


Employees, students and participants are recommended to do a voluntary Corona self-test. ​​​​​​​Self-tests are available free of charge at both locations.

  • In Breukelen, a separate room has been set-up in the Theater Lounge for self-testing.
  • In Amsterdam, a separate room has been set-up on the ground floor.
  • Students living on campus in Breukelen test themselves at home. They have received self-tests for this.
  • If the result is positive, you go home and take a PCR test and remain in quarantine until the result comes back.

Work from home

The COVID-19 work-from-home-policy changes with the easing. If you have location-related work, you are also expected at Nyenrode. If you do not have location-bound work, work a maximum of 50% of your time at Nyenrode.

Traveling abroad

Various educational programs include study trips to various destinations. The COVID-19 situation in a country is no longer decisive for travel advice. This makes traveling to countries outside Europe possible again. However, the COVID-19 virus is not gone, and measures may still be in force per country of destination, such as mandatory test, QR codes and facemasks. Nyenrode follows the travel advice of the national government. These can be found on the website
