Resident Assistants and Residence life programme

Resident Assistants are international students living in dorms of VU Amsterdam who organise activities to help new international students to settle in, to get to know each other and to learn more about Amsterdam and student life.

They also offer support in practical and personal matters and can refer to professional support staff of VU Amsterdam and DUWO/The Key if required.

With the Residence life programme, we would like to help create a safe, healthy, and inclusive atmosphere within university accommodation in order to facilitate academic and residential learning.

RA’s (Resident Assistants) have an important role in welfare and safety, building an atmosphere focused on mutual respect and positive relationships in the assigned buildings at Uilenstede and BOLD (Amsterdam North). We find it extremely important to maintain a safe and liveable climate within our student accommodation and foster connection and interaction within our community. RA’s are the connection between students, VU staff and DUWO staff/the Key staff.
