GO get your ESN card at the ISN office!

During the semester you can buy an ESN membership card for only 5 euros, which we highly recommend: without it you cannot join our activities and Coco’s parties! Moreover, it will give you some really nice discounts at numerous places in Amsterdam! Since ISN Amsterdam is a non–profit organization we do not make money on the students, we actually lower the prices of our activities by using money from the UvA and AUAS (HvA) and by making deals with several partners. 

During the first few weeks of the semester we will sell the ESN cards at the door of the International Student Night in Coco’s on Wednesdays*, but you can also come by our office to buy the ESN card on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 1 and 5 PM.


  • You have to be an international student
  • You are studying at either the University of Amsterdam (UvA)/Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) or you are participating in the Erasmus+ for Traineeship Programme


  • You have been an ISN Coach during one of our iSN introduction weeks or you are a ISN Buddy (a special price: € 1,50)

When buying a ticket for an activity you can enter your ESN card number as a coupon, which will make your ticket 5 euros cheaper! You can only use your card number for one ticket, so if you want to buy a ticket for your friend as well make sure to get their card number. In case you have not gotten your ESN card yet, you can buy the ticket for 5 euros more. Then you will receive your ESN card at the activity and you can enjoy the discount for the rest of the semester!

If you have any questions about this please see our website, come by our office or send us a message at info@isn-amsterdam.nl
