Amsterdam University College
At Amsterdam University College (AUC) all students live together in the dorms. Quite convenient, because you all study and live in the same place! The AUC dorms and university building are both found at Amsterdam Science Park in Amsterdam-East.
There are two types of rooms available within the dorms. You can either live in:
1) A shared room. Rooms are shared between 2, 3 or 4 people.
2) A single room.
All rooms are provided with linoleum covered floors and curtains, which should not be replaced. Some of the rooms are furnished: these are intended for temporary accommodation only and come with a bed, desk, chair and wardrobe.
Most AUC students spend their first year in a shared room, a great way to make new friends quickly! Depending on the type of room, you share it with 1 to 3 other students - always of the same sex as you. The size and layout of the rooms vary: there are studios shared by two people, but three-room apartments shared by four people as well.
Do you live in a shared room, but would you prefer a room to yourself? No worries: every AUC student gets the chance to move within the dorms once, at the end of the first year. Graduating third year students leave over the summer, it will be announced in May which rooms will become available due to their departure from AUC. You will then be given the chance to pick the perfect room from among all those available.
In a single room you have it all to yourself: your very own kitchen and bathroom! Some single rooms are located on a hallway with a common room, which you share with your neighbours - think of it as a shared living room. Keeping it nice and clean is a shared responsibility, but making it into a fun place is too: time to get creative!
Arrival and key pick up
You can collect the keys at the office of the DUWO caretaker at Carolina Macgillavrylaan 794A. Please bring a valid passport or ID with you!
On the agreed date (the start date of your contract) you can enter your room from 13.00. If you come earlier or outside the opening hours of the office, you must arrange a place to sleep yourself. Is the first day of your contract on a weekend or on a public holiday? Then you can pick up your key on the next working day after 1 p.m.
