Student Life

Campus life

Located on the edge of one of the most energetic cities in The Netherlands, the University campus offers the full range of what students look for. The campus itself offers the peaceful environment necessary for developing your mind and acquiring knowledge. Right off campus is the Warande forest where you can go for a walk and clear your head.

Sports facilities

Because we aim for “a healthy mind in a healthy body” we also offer students the opportunity to buy a sports card. With that card, you can use all the facilities at the sports center such as tennis and basketball courts, football fields and the modern fitness facilities. You will also be able to participate in sports evenings organized by the Summer School together with professional instructors from the Sports Center and members of the University’s sports associations.


We offer you intensive academic summer courses (ECTS Accredited) combined with cultural and social activities.
