Throughout the year, there are multiple opportunities to visit Amsterdam University College or speak to representatives about our academic programme.
During the summer, the AUC Academic Building (Science Park 113) has adjusted opening hours. From 12 July 2021 to 20 August 2021, the AUC building is open:
Please note that there is a cap on capacity in the AUC building in order to main 1.5m distance at all times. This means that for many students and staff members studying and working from home remains the norm to avoid exceeding the allocated capacity.
The AUC Academic Building remains closed to non-student/non-staff external visitors (unless explicitly arranged in advance as a guest of a staff member) until further notice due to measures in place to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). The UvA (and by extension AUC) continues to follow the measures and recommendations of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) and the Public Health Service of Amsterdam (GGD).

The online tour of AUC will take place via Zoom, a video conferencing platform. An AUC staff member or a student ambassador will guide you through a virtual tour of the campus, explain our study programme and curriculum, and give you an introduction to what life is normally like as a student at AUC and in the student residences.
Please be aware that the virtual tour may occur in a group setting with other prospective students and/or their guests also joining. The virtual tour will last approximately 45 minutes.

Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, it's not yet known to what extent we will be able to safely welcome visitors on-campus for AUC Open Days as in previous years. Our intention is to host on-campus events throughout the year when it's possible to do so. Other information events will take the form of webinars, meet and greets, and live streams to offer online options in case it's not possible to come to campus. Taking place over the course of October, November, December and January, there will be ample opportunities for prospective students and their guests to get more information about AUC's curriculum, majors and academic programme, speak directly with students and staff, have virtual tours of the student residences, participate in sample lectures, meet with admissions officers and, hopefully, visit the campus and student residences in-person.
As a joint initiative of both the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU), AUC also takes part in their Bachelor Days. The Bachelor Days are designed to inform prospective students about the various Bachelor programmes offered within the faculties of the UvA and VU. Bachelor's Days consist of presentations and question sessions designed to introduce prospective students to the liberal arts and sciences model, explain which majors and areas of study are possible at AUC, and describe what it's like to live in the student residences on campus. The UvA Bachelor's Week will consist of online presentations in October 2021. The VU Bachelor's Days on 5-6 November 2021 and will take place on-campus if possible, and online if not.
Can't make it to one of the Open Days or Bachelor's Days? No problem! A tour at AUC can be booked throughout the year (including over the summer). During a tour, one of our AUC student ambassadors or a member of our staff will guide you around the academic building and discuss the in's and out's of the academic programme and student life. There is always ample time to ask questions and the groups are intentionally kept small to allow for more personal interaction.
