Housing fees will be paid directly to AUC and costs will vary according to the type of accommodation. All AUC students are housed in a purpose-built complex on the Carolina MacGillavrylaan in the Science Park Amsterdam, in the Watergraafsmeer neighbourhood of the city. These modern student residences are owned and run by DUWO housing association. AUC guarantees accommodation for all its students - which is a huge plus, as it can be very difficult to find somewhere to live in Amsterdam.
All AUC students are also expected to live in the student residences throughout their studies, so that their time at AUC becomes a true intercultural and social learning experience. The residential aspect of the international campus is an important part of life at AUC. You will be able to cooperate and discuss issues with fellow students and lecturers both during and after class hours, and engage in various social and cultural activities.
