Security and surveillance

Within the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS), the central control room is the contact point for reporting incidents. The central control room has a pivotal role in security and is therefore staffed 24/7.


  • providing assistance in the event of emergencies and large-scale incidents
  • dispatching internal and external emergency services outside of opening hours
  • alerting the BHV teams during opening hours
  • organising and managing security and surveillance in buildings and on grounds
  • monitoring and operating security cameras
  • supporting reception services with on-call surveillance officers. See Reception for more information


In the event of emergencies or urgent matters, please call the central control room directly. You can call 24/7 on 020 595 3333. Please note! Unsafe situations in the building and (near) accidents should also be reported to the Service Desk and your direct supervisor. All incidents must be registered by filling out the registration form for this purpose, which can be found under ‘Incident reporting’.


Surveillance officers provide security-related assistance in buildings and on the grounds, both during and outside of buildings’ opening hours. They are on-call 24/7 and their duties include:

  • monitoring the order and safety of the buildings, parking areas and grounds
  • monitoring the enforcement of the parking policy
  • authorising and assisting suppliers and emergency services outside of office hours
  • conducting opening and closing security rounds
  • alarm follow-up, e.g. in case of burglary or fire alarms
  • operating the fire alarm system
