The Corporate Finance department assesses the damage and keeps you updated on the handling process by email. Processing your claim does not mean VU Amsterdam is liable, but that VU Amsterdam will conduct an investigation. VU Amsterdam cannot be held liable for damages that result from intent or recklessness.

Damage to VU Amsterdam properties or to properties belonging to third parties
You may also accidentally cause damage to VU Amsterdam property or properties belonging to third parties in the performance of your duties.
