Intreeweek 2020

In September your student life in Amsterdam will finally start. Studying is more than attending classes and working on group projects. Your time in Amsterdam will be an amazing adventure!

To prepare you for the time of your life, Committee Intree will organize an introduction week you don’t want to miss as a UvA student! This year, this looks very different than usual. Our brand new online platform will contain a variety of things. Livestreams, associations, comedy and much more a part of our programme!

What is Intreeweek?

Intreeweek is the official introduction week of the University of Amsterdam. With two senior students of your study as guides, you will get to know the city, the university and your fellow students. During Intreeweek online events will be organized.

Intreeweek and social distancing

Due to the Dutch’s governments, we were forced to cancel a lot of our events. We replaced a part of these events with online alternatives, such as livestreams with amazing DJs. This makes it possible to participate in Intreeweek even if you cannot be in Amsterdam yet!

From the latest press conference by the Dutch government (6-8-2020), it became clear that organizing any in person activities during Intreeweek 2020 will not be possible. Unfortunately, cancelling all of our alternative activities such as our sports day was necessary.
But don’t worry: for the last couple of months, the Intree Committee has been working hard setting up an extensive online platform. We are looking forward to virtually welcoming the new UvA students!

Study programme introduction

During Intreeweek 2020, several study programmes have introductions to their respective programmes, mainly on Monday and Tuesday. During this introduction you, along with all the first-year students of your programme, will receive information regarding schedules, textbooks etc. The study programme introduction is useful as well as mandatory. All first-year students will be present.

You will find more information about this study programme introduction in the email you received upon your enrolment at the UvA. It is possible that the activities of the study programme education introduction overlap with those of Intreeweek. This is not a problem: after the introduction you can easily return to the Intree programme. During the study programme introduction you’ll be under the responsibility of the relevant faculty. Please direct further questions about the education introduction to your study programme’s contact person.

High quality housing for ambitious students.

Student Experience offers students the best of both worlds: an independent studio with private bathroom and kitchen as well as plenty of space to meet, study, have fun and exercise with fellow residents.

2.400+ independent studios // 4 top locations in Amsterdam // Private bathroom & kitchen // Furnished or unfurnished // Co-learning initiatives // Sports facilities // Social events
