The first residents entered the Science Park II complex at the end of 2013. Students from the UvA and HvA, among others, live there. With both a large number of domestic and foreign students, this makes it a vibrant place to live. The UvA, Amsterdam University College, the Universum Sports Centre and various research institutes are just steps away from Science Park II. With its own station, lots of greenery and Javaplein 10 minutes away, it is a popular residential location. The residents committee of Science Park II started in early 2014.
Together we form the residents committee of Science Park II. There are several tasks that we take care of, but bringing together the residents of Science Park II is our core activity. This happens among other things by organizing all kinds of events, such as BBQs, theme parties, pub quizzes, skating together or pool evenings.
In addition, we also form a point of contact for residents. Is everyone confronted with the same problems and does DUWO not solve this adequately? Then we stand up for the interests of our residents and propose solutions where possible. Duwoners is an important authority in this area; through us and other residents’ committees, they hear what is going on in the DUWO residential complexes of Amsterdam and they raise common problems at DUWO. We also consult with the social manager of the building and we strive to increase the liveability of our apartments.
