I thought it was about time I write something about where I have gotten a room. My room is in Uilenstede which is a student housing campus, mostly for students at the VU. I am living in a building with 14 others, whom I share kitchen with. I share bathroom with two only which is very nice. The kitchen can sometimes get really dirty, but I am lucky as the people I share with a relatively clean. However, we now have mice which I think is really disgusting! Today I decided to take some photos of the campus so that you can all see what it looks like here . Uilenstede is situated in Amstelveen, right on the border to Amsterdam and is only a five minute bike ride from my university and about a 20 minute bike ride from Amsterdam center. So it is really nicely situated as I don’t have to travel far to the university and it is easy and quick to get in to the city.
