How much discount do I get on my textbooks if I am a member of VIVA?
If you are a member of VIVA, you will get very high discount on your textbooks.

Discount on Dutch language textbooks
Before a period begins, you will receive a 10 percent discount on Dutch-language titles when ordering online via VIVA. This has to do with Dutch legislation. You will receive this discount only during the period mentioned with the titles online. If the period has started you will receive a 5 percent online discount if you purchase 2 different Dutch-language books from a study group. The latter also applies to purchases at the VU Bookstore as VIVAmember.

Discounts on English-language books
. English language (study) books are always super cheap if you are a member of VIVA. Also note the lowest price guarantee that applies to you as a member of VIVA. This way you always pay the lowest price for foreign books.

Lowest Price Guarantee
You will not find your books cheaper anywhere in the Netherlands than at the VIVA. As a member of VIVA, you get a lowest-price guarantee! If you can buy the study book cheaper at a regular Dutch webshop (including Bol.com!) then you get the difference back. Please keep your invoice of VIVA safe. Note: this guarantee only applies in the run-up to and during the period that you need the study book.

I already bought my books at the VU Bookstore and then became a member of VIVA?
As a member of VIVA you get an extra discount. If you decided to become a member of VIVA during the introduction week but have already bought your books at the VU Bookstore then you will receive the extra discount. To do so, go to the bookstore with your invoice from the VU Bookstore. Please note that this action runs from August 1 to September 15 of each academic year. The extra discount applies only to English language textbooks.

Do I also get a discount on textbooks I buy at the VU Bookstore if I am a member of a student organization?
