Regus facilitates the University of Amsterdam with Auditorium
The University of Amsterdam (UvA) has agreed upon a service contract with Regus to facilitate an auditorium with
two lecture halls of 500 seats and 260 seats, for a period of three years. Regus facilitates the University of
Amsterdam by offering a full service concept in a durable housing solution as a temporary replacement of the
facilities at the Roeterseiland in Amsterdam.
For this Auditorium, approximately 2,000 m² of vacant business space on James Watt Street 78 in Amsterdam,
including adjacent premises, has been rented from the housing association 'De Alliantie'. It is the former industrial
complex of 'Ceelen Drukpersen' from the early 60's. After having stood vacantly for several years, the industrial
building was transformed by Regus and reused as a fully equipped auditorium with enough bike rack space for
BNP Paribas Real Estate (formerly Holland Realty Partners), has advised Regus with the rent, development
consent and waiver with respect to the current destination.
