According to the UvA website, the university provides a total of 3.941 study spaces across all locations, which feels like a lot. However, considering that the UvA is the biggest university in the Netherlands, with over 41.000 students this year, 3.941 is nothing. To put it in perspective, less than 10% of UvA students have a place to study at the university. These numbers are shocking. Studying at school is for many students motivating, as it puts you into 'workmode'. For other students, it is a necessity.
