Life at AUC
Video produced by AUC students Leon Lan and Andrew Kambel
Amsterdam University College is a residential institution, where the students live and study together in a close-knit academic community. AUC is an interuniversity institute of the University of Amsterdam and VU Amsterdam. Students will, of course, have access to the facilities of both these institutions, but AUC has its own study programme, its own academic building, and its own student accommodation complex.
The AUC campus is by no means an isolated setting. With the multicultural city of Amsterdam on your doorstep, and with easy access to all the services of both the University of Amsterdam and VU Amsterdam, you will have the best of both worlds: the intimate and supportive atmosphere of a small-scale institution, plus all the advantages of two major research universities located in a global city. Next to that, the campus of situated very close to the Jaap Eden ice skating rink, a number of football pitches, baseball pitches, tennis courts and athletics track. Furthermore, the University Sports Centre is located across the AUC Academic building, and opposite of the AUC dorms the Flevopark can be found.
