Translation of tweet: “The people present in the buildings of the different campuses are released. Follow the instructions of the police. Do not hang around and leave the location as soon as possible. The police will supervise the people leaving.”
The university told everyone still on the Drie Eiken campus to follow the instructions of the security guards and police. Everyone has been instructed to leave the campus.
Starting from Tuesday 26 November, all classes and activities will be resumed as planned.
