The Uilenstede Campus, owned by student housing corporation DUWO, will undergo a large-scale renovation that aims to give the area the atmosphere of a modern campus. For the development and implementation of the project, a partnership agreement was put into action between DUWO, Amstelveen Municipality and the Vrije Universiteit. Lingotto is the real estate developer of the plot and acts on behalf of the owner.

Focus points behind the renovation of the campus are the creation of a well organised, student-friendly and lively outdoor public space; the expansion of public safety; a more transparent layout of the outdoor areas; and the development of supplementary campus facilities. The existing conditions will undergo significant improvements that include the creation of new student accommodations, amenities and public spaces.

Commissioned by Lingotto and the DUWO, NEXT architects is responsible for the spatial design for the non-housing functions in the centre of the Uilenstede Campus. NEXT is currently developing a coherent concept for ca. 8.000 sqm. future student services including commercial spaces, bars, restaurants and a supermarket.
