The Study Association for Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam



Welcome to Off-Screen! Off-Screen is the Study Association of the studies Media & Culture (NL + EN) and Media & Information at the University of Amsterdam. Established in 1997, we started out very small and have since then grown to be one of the biggest and most active study associations in Amsterdam!

Off-Screen offers you a big amount of diverse activities and events. We organise the greatest parties, most exciting trips and very interesting events concerning media. And of course our members are the most amazing people! On top of that, we have ‘borrels’ every Monday, where you can meet up with your friends, but most importantly you have the possibility to create new friendships. So join Off-Screen and get the most out of your days as a student!

A day in the life:

Off-Screen Edition

Are you an aspiring media student? Or do you want to show your family and friends what Off-Screen is all about? This video from the event called 'A Day in the Life: Off-Screen Edition' shows you a 'Hop On Hop Off'-tour guided by some Off-Screen members. They will show you typical hotspots for media students and Off-Screeners and tell you everything about those places through their expertise and personal experiences. What do the lecture halls look like? Where can you get amazing sandwiches? And is there a place for Off-Screeners to relax? They will show you the answers to these questions during this online tour!
