At the beginning of this semester CIEE Amsterdam has moved office from the Prins Hendrikkade to the Roetersstraat 8. Now that we are half way in to the semester I (Annabel) will give you a little tour of our pretty place.
The Office Area
We currently work with 3 persons at the CIEE Amsterdam office, organising activities, interest groups, insurances for students, housing, host families, weekend homestays, volunteering projects, classes, and much much more. We now have a nice space with desks and the CIEE logo on the wall!
This is a picture of when the office came up for rent:
We fell in love with the little bench in front of the office and we started using it directly!
This is the space where we work; check out the nice CIEE logo on the wall!
Before we could move in to our new office we had some Ikea Maddness to arrange, the desks and chairs all came from our old office but the kitchen needed cupboards and we love our new table in the meeting room. Luckily Erik and Matthijs (from CIEE Groningen) are also handy men, see how they take care of the last details before the opening of our new office!

Opening of the new office
And last week we opened our new office! Yay! Our resident director Hannah held a speech in which she highlighted important happenings in the CIEE history and the history of CIEE Amsterdam.
We invited all CIEE Amsterdams contacts and the neighbours and the office already feels like this has always been ours! We are very exited to welcome all new students here!
