UvA Start Appointment
UvA offers an appointment to tick off a lot of administration at the beginning of the year in one go. It is recommendable to book such an appointment to avoid sorting out confusing formalities all by yourself.
The appointments are on Friday 16th or Monday 19th August 2019, 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 or tram independently.
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).
Don’t worry if you are unable to attend the starter appointment it is relatively straightforward to get all of these tasks done by yourself, with our help!
