Responsibilities and safety

By handing in your request you declare to accept integral responsibility for the activity or its effects. The university can ask for justification at any time.

It is prohibited to endanger the security of students, staff and/or visitors of the campus or to disturb the regular activities of the university. You follow instructions of the responsible envolved or the security and accept that they can cancel the activity at any time.

When you serve food, you should take care of all aspects of nutrition safety, e.g. warm and cold chains. Wanneer je voedsel serveert, moet je alle aspecten van voedselveiligheid, o.a. warmte- en koudekettingen, zorgvuldig opvolgen. Certainly read the official advice of the federal government (Dutch / French) and ask for advice in the student restaurant in case of doubt.
