STUK visit : practical info


After the consultative committee of Wednesday 17 November, the federal measures to fight the spread of COVID have been tightened again. STUK obviously follows those measures. Since we closed for renovation works on November 14, the guidelines below apply to our location projects organized in Leuven during the rest of the season. You can find more detailed info on the COVID measures on the websites of our partner organisations, such as KNAL!, 30CC and OPEK.


From Saturday 20 November until at least 28 January, a Covid Safe Ticket (CST) and face masks are obligatory for all indoor cultural activities inside 50+ capacity venues. This includes all activities hosts in that period - a.o. KNAL! Planetarium Music Festival, dance performances in 30CC/Schouwburg and OPEK and Common Grounds. Everybody aged 10 and older is obliged to wear a face mask in all inside areas (reception, hallways, venues - also during performances). A CST + ID is required for everyone aged 12 and 2 months or above. More info on the CST can be found below.

STUK follows the measures imposed by the federal government, announced after the consultative committee on November 17.


For all visits to or events in STUKcafé or KNAL! Planetarium Music Festival, you will need a Covid Safe Ticket. For STUKcafé, this applies to everyone aged 16 or older. For cultural events (like KNAL!) this applies to everyone aged 12 or older. In order to enter the venue, you will need your entry ticket plus two extras: a valid Covid Safe Ticket** and your identity card. Please have both ready upon arrival, to allow a fluid entry of the venues. You cannot enter without both the CST and your identity card.

You can request your CST digitally with the CovidSafeBE app or via websites like Mijn Burgerprofiel and Those two websites also allow you to request a paper version of the CST. Bear in mind that this will be sent by post, so it could take up to a week before you receive your paper CST. There will be no rapid antigen tests at the door.

STUK only scans your CST to check, no health info will be shared with STUK. Our crew will see no personal data apart from your name, date of birth and QR code, and no personal data will be stored, only checked.

** You can get a CST if one of these apply:

• You have your vaccination certificate: you have been fully vaccinated at least 2 weeks;
• You have a recovery certificate of max. 6 months old;
• You have taken a PCR test with a negative result: validity = day of the test + 2 days;
• You have taken a rapid antigen test by medically trained professionals, with a negative result: validity = day of the test + 1 day. STUK does not organise rapid antigen tests at the door.
