Discover the campus

Get to know the countless opportunities for exploring the campus – both online and offline.

Exploring a campus that’s the size of around 200 football pitches is no easy feat, so it’s not surprising that it can take a while. Fortunately, there are plenty of opportunities to get to know the campus, both remotely and ‘in real life’.

Art & architecture walk

The University of Twente has a unique campus. It was built in the sixties according to the most modern insights on architecture and urban planning. In the seventies, a younger generation of architects decided to construct a number of remarkable and labyrinthian buildings, which contrast beautifully with the formal buildings from the sixties. As a result, the UT-campus became an open-air museum of modern architecture.

Besides these remarkable buildings, you can find a lot of artworks distributed over our green campus. Always wanted to know the story behind the ‘The Little Tower of Drienerlo’ or ‘The Thing with The Hovering Telegraph Poles’? Then let's take a walk (together)!

Books about the campus

Several books have been published about the campus during the past few years. They have been issued upon the completion of the real estate masterplan in 2011 and for the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the campus. You can view or read the books below digitally.
