Become a Member

You can become a member of ESN VU Amsterdam by buying an ESNcard. With the ESNcard you are part of the big international ESN Network. Not only ESN VU Amsterdam uses the card, but also other sections. Most ESN sections in the Netherlands use the ESNcard and so do a lot of sections throughout Europe. The card is not only a membership card but it also gives you discounts and offers you other great deals. To see what deals you get, visit the ESNcard website! Did you know we have RyanAir and Flixbus as partners?

In short; the ESNcard enables you to:

  • Be an official member of ESN VU Amsterdam
  • Sign up for our activities
  • Get great deals from our local & national partners
  • Get deals all over Europe which other local ESN sections offer


For more information on the ESNcard and the benefits, please visit our ESNcard tab on the main menu above.
