The "Vrije Universiteit" (VU) is a hospitable campus in the South of Amsterdam. The campus features excellent facilities for education and research, and facilitates new education- and workstyles with several foyers, gardens and coffee corners. The VU campus was recently extended with sport and cultural facilities, and can now be seen as a small village within Amsterdam. The VU was founded in 1880 and is one of the two main universities in Amsterdam with over 20.000 students.

The VU campus is located in the “Zuidas”, a commercial area with an international allure.

Furthermore, the Zuidas is located near the Beatrix Park and “Amsterdamse Bos” (Amsterdam Forrest; 3x the size of Central Park in NYC), green areas that are perfectly suited for a walk, a workout, or a glass of wine at a patio restaurant.
