You must be able to show your ID at all times on Intreeweek grounds when requested. Therefore it is important you always carry your passport, ID or driver’s license with you at every event.

All participants are required to wear the provided participatory bracelet of Intreeweek at all times. The bracelet will be provided at the first Intreeweek event and must be visible at every Intreeweek event. Please make sure you don’t lose it!

Alcohol policy

The Intreeweek is organized in accordance with the Dutch law. Therefore the consumption of alcohol by minors (18 years old and less) is strictly prohibited. All the involved parties, such as the bars for instance, apply these rules as well. When a participant is 18 years or older, they will receive another bracelet alongside the normal participatory bracelet indicating so. The participant needs to have this bracelet in order to get alcoholic beverages at our events. If you are caught with alcoholic beverages whilst not having been given the necessary bracelet, this can lead to exclusion from any further participation to the Intreeweek 2017. If, as a result, the organization of Intreeweek 2017 is amended for underage drinking, the fine will be for the participant in question.

Drugs

The Intreeweek is entirely drug-free. It is not allowed to carry, use or trade drugs. In case of violation of these rules, your participatory bracelet will be cut through and you will be removed from the event. The participant will be excluded from further participation to the Intreeweek 2017.

Studying with a disability

Having a disability doesn’t mean you can’t participate in the Intreeweek. A lot of our events are accessible for disabled people. To make sure everything goes smoothly when you participate, we advise you to contact us prior to the Intreeweek. This way we can explain to you personally whether an event is accessible for you or not. For example, there are some events in the different parks of Amsterdam that are less suitable for people with mobility problems. But an event such as Cinema @ Night is less suitable for someone who has impaired vision. Our goal is to make the Intreeweek as pleasant as possible for every student. Is there something we might be able to help you with? Please don’t hesitate to contact us by mail or by phone.
