Looking for a studio in Amsterdam?

A student studio in Little Manhattan at Cornelis Lelylaan and Willem Frogerstraat is ideally located: Lelylaan station is just around the corner. It's just a few steps from your bed to take public transport to the faculty – the return journey is just as easy. And with Delflandplein shopping centre just a few minutes away by bike, you do not have to go far for your daily shopping either. What more does a student want? A studio with its own kitchen, shower and toilet?

Then seize this opportunity as we are offering 275 magnificent, brand-new student studios. Rents start at EUR 330 per month. That includes the costs of an extensive service package (electricity, water, heating, TV and high-speed Internet (plug & play)) and is after deduction of rent allowance**. You can apply for rent allowance from 18 years old. There are also several larger studios, which are suitable for cohabitation. For these larger studios, you can apply for a rent surcharge from the age of 23.

Keys will be made available from 15 June 2017, well in advance of the new academic year.

The building and facilities
The 295 studios are part of a total of 590 studios. Exchange students are housed in the other studios. The tower counts 23 storeys. There are three lifts, so you need not carry your furniture up the stairs.

Built-in bicycle storage: you can safely park your bicycle in the secure bicycle storage. You can relax together with your fellow occupants in one of the two communal spaces.

High-speed washing: washing and drying wouldn't be easier: simply load a laundry credit on a handy app and reserve a machine in the laundry room online. All you have to do is put your laundry into the machine.

Floors: each studio door has a door viewer and there is a chalkboard where you can leave personal messages.
The advanced Salto key system will, of course, be used for the general access doors to the hall, corridors and laundry rooms. While the studios are not fitted with an individual bell, an electronic doorbell panel is present at the entrance to the building and the corridor access doors. An intercom system will let you see and hear who is at the door.

Contact the caretaker: the caretaker of the complex will personally make your acquaintance. The caretaker is often present in the building and can be easily approached.

Little Manhattan is located at Cornelis Lelylaan and Willem Frogerstraat, alongside Lelylaan Station. This ensures rapid public transport access to the faculty or city centre.

With Delflandplein shopping centre just a few minutes away by bike, you do not have to go far for your daily shopping. Facilities, such as Food Halls, are not much further away, approximately only 10 minutes by bike or public transport. It will take you about 15 minutes to reach the Cornelis Schuytstraat shopping street and the Ten Kate market.

Sports facilities are also nearby: the Calvijncollege sports hall at Pieter Calandstraat. Looking for some peace and quiet or nature? Then stroll to Rembrandtpark or, take a longer walk to the famous Vondelpark or Sloterpark.

As you are living alongside a major public transport node giving easy access in all directions, the municipality has not realised any parking spaces in the immediate vicinity of the building.
When moving you can use (un)loading spaces alongside the building, although you might have to circle around for a bit when it's busy and the spaces are occupied. ((Un)loading spaces require someone to be with the vehicle at all times. Unoccupied vehicles will be ticketed. So spare yourself a fine and arrange sufficient help.)
The surroundings of Little Manhattan are in full development. Once work is completed, you will be living at a magnificent spot in a lively area. Yet that's in the future; building activity in the immediate surroundings of the building continues for now so building noise and other related nuisances are unavoidable. Please keep this in mind.

Little Manhattan also has 279 apartments for ‘young professionals’. These are young people who graduated and are at the start of their career. The apartments for young professionals will be available in September 2017. Those who are interested in the apartments for young professionals can contact IC Netherlands: www.ic-netherlands.com
