Confidential Counsellors

The Executive Board is keen to ensure that VU Amsterdam offers a safe and pleasant environment for all students. Sexual harassment and other forms of undesirable conduct (violence, intimidation, aggression, bullying) will not be tolerated under any circumstances. Incidents are rare but not entirely unknown. VU Amsterdam therefore applies an active policy to counter all forms of undesirable conduct. Special 'confidential counsellors' have been appointed. There is also a formal complaints procedure and an investigating committee.

VU Amsterdam has appointed Confidential Counsellors for students. They can be contacted via the email address

Currently, all conversations with the confidential counsellors are by telephone or via zoom. If you would still benefit from a live conversation, please contact us.
