Student associations

Amsterdam has a thriving student community with various student associations. There are plenty of associations and activities for students to participate in alongside their studies.

A student association is a great way to meet other students, including those from different programmes. Take a look at the links below to find out what kinds of student associations you can join.

Code of conduct for student associations

It is important that students actively participate in student life. Being a member of a student association can contribute to the development and education of students.

The code of conduct on ‘The promotion and introduction period of student associations in Amsterdam’ includes agreements that were made concerning the course of affairs during the introduction periods of student associations. It lays out the norms and values to be upheld by each of the parties that has the code of conduct.

The code of conduct was drawn up by the UvA, AUAS and VU, in collaboration with the Amsterdam Chamber of Associations (Amsterdamse Kamer van Verenigingen) and the student associations that it represents. The code of conduct is valid from 1 February 2017 and supersedes the UvA and VU code of conduct from 2009 and the AUAS code of conduct from 2008.
