How’s the situation at Amstelcampus?

Due to a serious leakage in the fitness at Amstelcampus, we’ve temporarily moved fitness to the gymzaal and group fitness to the sporthal. Unfortunately we’ll have to leave the gymzaal on 21 August, and the fitness floor won’t be ready for sports by then. This is the planning:

  • Until August 21: fitness in the gymzaal.
  • From August 21 to ??: no fitness at Amstelcampus. We expect to reopen the fitness somewhere in September.
  • There is no group fitness in the week of 17 to 21 August.
  • There is a dynamic schedule in the period before 17 August and after 21 August: keep an eye on the group fitness timetable.

We are very disappointed of course, but we think that everything will be fixed somewhere in September!

No show and sanctions

Not everyone who makes a reservation actually shows up. That is very annoying for us and for you. So if you can’t go (because of unexpected drinks on Friday night), please cancel your reservation and make room for others (thanks ?). We are working on a system with modest sanctions for not canceling a reservation on time. To be continued!

Parking at Universum

Are you coming to Universum by car? From 1 August onwards, you can only use parking P7. Parking P3 is being dismantled for the construction of a Matrix building.

Bookings and timeslots

It takes some getting used to, all these reservation rules. But they are necessary. The most important one? You really can’t enter without a reservation. And the gates will only open between 15 minutes before and 30 minutes after the start of your timeslot. Don’t be late, because we won’t open the gate. (Oneliner contest? Anywhere?).

Aerosol test in Universum

UvA researcher Daniel Bonn performed a baseline test for aerosols in the fitness of Universum. And he did another test after people worked out in the gym. We do not draw any conclusions, but check the positive results in this Nieuwsuur item (in Dutch, recordings in Universum at 5.07).
