UvA Getting Started Appointment
UvA Start Appointment
UvA offers an appointment to tick off a lot of admin at the beginning of the year in one go. This year the appointments are on Friday 18th or Monday 21st August, with a shuttle bus available from the airport from 07:00 to 16:00 to Science Park where the appointments take place. You can also travel to Science park by train taking approximately 30 minutes at a cost of €5.40.
At this appointment you can pick up your student card, collect keys from De Key and Duwo, book an appointment with ING to open a bank account, and register with the municipality you will be living in (Amsterdam or Diemen).
If you are unable to attend the starter appointment it is relatively straightforward to get all of these tasks done by yourself, or with our help!
