Benefits of the AUV membership
You can get a free library card from the University Library Amsterdam. You’ll also get a hefty discount on annual membership at the University Sports Centre and on classes held there. And if you’re keen to keep learning, you can attend the Open UvA Courses at a substantial discount.
The University’s close links with the city of Amsterdam means the AUV card also gives you discounts at various cultural centres, like the Foam photography museum and exhibitions at the Nieuwe Kerk. Join the AUV today and you can enjoy all the benefits of the AUV card.
We are pleased to announce that the AUV membership card will be digital from now on.
The AUV goes green
Sustainability is an important responsibility which we, as the UvA Alumni Association AUV, also want to contribute to. Therefore we went looking for a more sustainable alternative to the familiar plastic membership card. The alternative we found is a digital membership card.
How does the digital membership card work?
We used to send plastic membership cards by post each year. These plastic cards have now been replaced by digital cards. For the rest, nothing changes when it comes to signing up, cancelling your membership and changing the payment method.
As soon as the annual fee of 35 euros has been processed, you will receive an e-mail confirming your AUV membership for the coming year. This mail contains your name, membership number and a QR code. Scanning the QR code with your smartphone will take you to the page containing your AUV membership card. The picture of the membership card on this page is proof of your membership. The card will be valid until the indicated date.
Tip: Save the picture of your membership card on your smartphone. That way, you always have your membership card at hand.
Do you still have a physical membership card? This card remains valid until the expiry date stated on it.
Don't have a smartphone?
If you do not have a smartphone, you can print out the confirmation email and use it as proof of membership.
