''Ask anyone who has studied in the past, and they’re bound to tell you that the time you spend as a student is the most intriguing time of your life. You’ve taken the first step in becoming a student in the flourishing Dutch capital city already, now it’s time to make the next by diving into Amsterdam’s vibrant student life. Being a student encompasses so much more than studying alone, and we at SSRA are eager to prove that to you!
SSRA is a long-standing students’ association located at the Leidsegracht, a stone’s throw away from Leidseplein, Amsterdam’s nightlife centre. While almost all of our members are Dutch, it is possible to become a member as an international student. Joining SSRA is a good way to learn Dutch as the introduction period is completely in Dutch. A membership lasts at least four years so joining SSRA is a nice option if you want to settle in Amsterdam.
Throughout the year, our committees and members regularly organise activities, including theme parties, a gala, and all sorts of competitions. Members can also join our indoor football and hockey teams, which compete in local competitions.
Students of all universities and fields of study are welcome! Feel free to stop by at any of our organised activities, or have a look at our website: www.ssra.nl!''
