AMS is reopening its campus

We are looking forward to welcoming you in a safe environment.


AMS is a dynamic community of international students, faculty, staff, and partners. Protecting their health and safety remains our top priority, as well as the well-being of our society in general. The only effective way to do so is to minimize the risk of transmission.

That is why we strictly follow federal and local safety regulations. On top of that, we apply a specific protocol based on a pandemic matrix drawn up by VLIR (the Flemish Interuniversity Council) with concrete safety measures for each of the four pandemic levels indicated by the color codes green, yellow, orange, and red specific for education.

The allocation of the color code for education is determined in joint consultation between the Risk Assessment Group (RAG), the Flemish Ministry of Education, the Antwerp provincial government and the mayor of the city of Antwerp.

The AMS campus will only be shut down when the Antwerp region is given a code red. In case of code yellow or orange, the campus will remain open for educational activities.

The current color code is: yellow.

We are constantly monitoring the situation and we will adjust measures as necessary. If you have any questions or concerns about the measures below, please contact corona@ams.ac.be .

In case you test positive for COVID-19, we ask you to contact covid.alert@ams.ac.be as soon as possible.

Update: September 1, 2020

Safety and hygiene are our highest priority. Each and every one of us is jointly responsible and contributes to the well-being of the AMS community and society through appropriate behavior. Together we strive to create an environment in which low risk contacts are the starting point. In this way, we can help to prevent the spread of the virus.
