At the start of academic year 2019-2020, the range of lecture rooms will be expanded with a flexible education building. The Executive Board adopted this decision at the initiative of the three faculties at the Roeterseiland Campus.
The main consideration for this investment decision was the quality of teaching. In addition to lectures, the flexible education building will be able to host a range of other events, such as graduation ceremonies and information sessions. Moreover, the range of lecture rooms available at the Roeterseiland Campus will contribute to a lively campus atmosphere.
The plans will be worked out in further detail over the next few weeks. Local residents will be invited to an evening walk-in session in early June to learn more about the plans. A representative from the City of Amsterdam will be present at this session. After the evening walk-in session, the University of Amsterdam (UvA) will apply for the environmental and planning permit for the construction of the flexible education building.
