Corona guidelines

Adjusted guidelines for during the pandemic

The AUAS Venture Centre also wants to offer student entrepreneurs the opportunity to use the AVS flex workplaces during the Corona crisis. But in order to do this safely, we have drawn up adjusted guidelines.

This protocol contains the guidelines that we expect all participants, employees and guests to adhere to.


  • Do not come to the Amsterdam Venture Studios Amstel Campus if you or your roommates have health complaints such as a cold or cough, sore throat and/or fever.
  • Do not come to the Amsterdam Venture Studios Amstel Campus if you or your roommates have tested positive for the corona virus in the past 14 days.
  • If you have been in contact with people who are infected or if you have been in a risk area, be extra alert to possible complaints.
  • We encourage the use of corona (quick) testing, but this is not mandatory.
  • Check whether the national government requires you to go into home quarantine upon arrival after a trip abroad. If this is the case, you will not use the Amsterdam Venture Studios during that period.
  • If you have attended parties, events, gatherings or other places for which an increased risk of spreading the virus has been established, we ask you not to use the Amsterdam Venture Studios for ten days.

If we find out that members/employees are working in the AVS but were present at one of these meetings in the 10 days before, they will have to leave and they will no longer have access until we reopen regularly.


  • All users of the Amsterdam Venture Studios must register a workplace in advance via email - venturecentre@hva.nl
  • The Amsterdam Venture Studios is only accessible via the entrance on Wibautstraat - the door to the lobby of the Wibauthuis may not be used.
  • Upon arrival, the scan must be done every day via the QR tag visible at the entrance or via gesprek.in/avsamstelcampus.
  • Disinfect your hands at a disinfection column when entering and leaving the building.
  • Always wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose when you are away from your workplace.
  • Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly with water and disinfectant soap and/or gel and dry well with paper.
  • Cough and sneeze into the inside of your elbow.
  • Use tissue paper and then wash hands.
  • Do not shake hands, hug each other, and avoid other forms of physical greetings.
  • It is only allowed to consume food that has been brought/bought by yourself in the canteen.
  • Joint use of foodstuffs and the storage of foodstuffs in the pantry for longer than 12 hours is not permitted.
  • Keep 1.5 meters apart in the Amsterdam Venture Studios.
  • Stick to the stickers on the floor, do not enter a compartment that someone else is already standing or sitting in.
  • It is not allowed to get drinks for each other from the coffee machine or pantry.
  • You put used glasses, cups, plates, cutlery and dishes in the dishwasher yourself.
  • The AVS Amstel Campus is only accessible to the founders of the registered startups & employees of the HvA Venture Centre, so you cannot receive visitors.
