UvA Press Office

The University of Amsterdam (UvA) Press Office is the first port of call for journalists contacting the University.

The press officers handle all incoming media enquiries and issue all statements to the media. These can cover both academic and policy-related information and general information. The UvA press officers also advise academic staff and managers on dealing with the media.
