We are an independent student-run newspaper that covers stories from the city of Amsterdam and the University of Amsterdam. We publish once a day during the academic year from Monday to Friday. Once a month, we held workshops open to any student in which we teach specific skills from the journalism field.
The Amsterdammer was founded in March 2018 by UvA communication science student Isabel Bonnet.
Our founding staff included 25 students from 16 countries: China, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Germany, India, Italy, Lithuania, Mexico, Netherlands, Romania, Serbia, Singapore, South Korea, Venezuela, and Vietnam.
We are proud to be diverse and encourage students to discover and develop new ways of communicating the news.
We strive to inform the students and faculty members of the Universities in Amsterdam about topics that are relevant to them as members of the academic community and as citizens in the Netherlands.
Students should feel free to report about any topic without restriction of any means.
Students from any nationality, ethnicity or race are be to treated equally by the members of the paper. In addition, there will be no discrimination in any way while covering our stories and choosing our sources. The Amsterdammer aims to have a staff from different degrees, ethnicities and nationalities that will bring new and different perspectives to the coverage.
