Safe sports environment at Sportcentrum VU

Sportcentrum VU stands for a safe (sports) environment for all its members, visitors and employees. We follow the guidelines set out by the NOC*NSF.

Social safety is a prerequisite for being able to study, work or play sports properly and contributes to the well-being of students, employees and local residents. As an open and hospitable environment, the Sports Centre VU does not tolerate discrimination, bullying, sexual harassment or other behaviour that goes against our values. Nevertheless, undesirable behaviour does occur. Do you experience unsafe behaviour? Report it. You can also do so anonymously.

Examples of behaviour that can be reported to the Social Safety Hotline are bullying, discrimination, (online) misconduct, domestic or honour-related violence, stalking, prolonged persistent complaining behaviour (this is a form of stalking), confused behaviour that causes unsafety, (sexual) intimidation, sexual violence, physical or verbal abuse, threats, suicide problems. 

Would you like to discuss your story with someone instead of making a report straight away? That is also possible. You can make an appointment with the central staff confidential counsellor via Your message will be treated confidentially.

It is also possible to make an appointment by telephone with the following persons:
