*UPDATE 01-09* 
There will be a strike from Qbuzz on the 9th of September, which may cause difficulty in coming to Zernike as the busses might not run. You could instead take a NS-bike to Zernike as the bus for the introduction weekend leaves from Zernike. If you think you will have trouble getting to Zernike, could you let us know by sending an email to or coming by our boardroom (5414.0020).

*This activity is only for first year students*

Are you a first-year student starting to study at the Faculty of Spatial Sciences? Then there is no better way to spend the first weekend of your studies than joining our introduction weekend on Ameland. You can expect an amazing weekend where you can meet your fellow first-year students and get to know our Association a bit better. We would also like to stress that this weekend is not a hazing in any way but rather a fun weekend to get to know us and your fellow students! 

The weekend will come at a cost of around €62 including accommodation, boat tickets, bike rental, food, and non-alcoholic drinks. You can sign up for this activity with the button 'enroll'. You will need to be a member of Ibn Battuta if you want to join, which only costs €14 a year. If you are on the participants list but don't show up to the activity you will still be charged. 

Please note that we have a limited capacity of around 110 students so if that number is exceeded we will draw lots. You will receive more information like a detailed schedule and packing list at a later point. 

If you have any questions regarding the weekend please don't hesitate to contact us by sending an email to

Join us for an unforgettable weekend and the perfect way to start your studies!
