Self-testing is not mandatory and it is your own responsibility to use the test at home. It is also not mandatory to show a negative test result to gain entrance to the VU campus. SURFspot, the organization for ICT in education, manages the digital portal where students and employees can order the self-tests for free. Students and staff can use their existing institution account for this.
With the use of self-tests, the government aims to detect infections more quickly in order to prevent as many corona outbreaks as possible. For more information about the use of self-tests in education, visit www.zelftestonderwijs.nl.
