At the start of the 2019-2020 academic year, plans were set in motion to expand the range of lecture rooms with a flexible education building.
To meet the growing need for teaching spaces, the three faculties on the Roeterseiland Campus have initiated efforts to build a new education building called REC V. The building will be located between CREA and the REC J/K building. Following several discussions with resident representatives, local residents were informed of the plans during an evening walk-in session in June 2018. A representative from the City of Amsterdam was also present at this session. The University of Amsterdam has since applied for the environmental and planning permit for the construction of the flexible education building.
