Travelling between your home and student room during the confinement period

As a student, remote teaching requires you have all your studying material at hand.  If you are studying at home and need to go to your student room to get things, you can legitimately travel for the purpose.

Only one travel must be organized so think carfully about everything you need.  Take the shortest itinerary and comply to the social distancing measures.


Make sure you can be identified as a student by carrying your student card, as welll as your rental contract.
