UvA campus

Open city campus

The University of Amsterdam is developing four open city campuses that connect the city and the University and combine the advantages of both. Studying at the University of Amsterdam means studying in a vibrant city with excellent opportunities for education and research. A city where there is plenty of space for cooperation and exchange.

City Centre Campus: Arts

The Faculty of Humanities and the University Library will be housed in and around the Binnengasthuis, a historical place in the centre of Amsterdam where the Athenaeum Illustre, the forerunner of the University of Amsterdam, was founded in 1632. Monumental buildings are being renovated or completely rebuilt so that they will be ready for future generations of students and staff.

In the video below, a student guides you around the Faculty of Humanities. You can also watch the video of the Faculty of Law, which is also currently located in the city centre. (In the summer of 2017, the Faculty of Law will move to the Roeterseiland Campus).
