Wearing face masks at the University of Twente

Until Friday 25 February 2022, the obligation to wear a face mask still applies in the buildings of UT. As of 25 February 2022, it is no longer necessary to wear one; however, we strongly advise you to wear one at busy times and in busy places.

Please note: to ensure that vulnerable people are able to travel safely, the requirement to wear a face mask on public transport and at airports will remain in force even after 25 February.
