In and aroud the residences
The residences have pleasant inner courtyards and spacious balconies or loggias, where you can go to relax in the sunshine and enjoy some fresh air.
Science Park has good public transport connections, particularly bus 40 that stops near the student residences and runs between Amstel Station and Muiderpoort Station (to get into the city centre or to go to AUC's Academic Building you have to change). Science Park also has its own railway station.
For shopping in the neighbourhood, you can go to the nearby Molukkenstraat, or travel a little further to the Middenweg and Linnaeusstraat. For Do-It-Yourself, there is a Praxis shop close by. The city centre is only a short bike ride or bus/tram trip away.
The University of Amsterdam sport centre (Universum) is also located in the Science Park. Additional sport facilities are within easy reach (ice skating rink, swimming pool, etc.).
There is a small laundrette on the ground floor of the middle block of the residences, accessible only to residents. You need to buy a laundry card from DUWO to use in the machines; detergent and fabric softener are included in the price and automatically supplied.
