The campus has a wide range of healthcare institutions to offer.
Most of them are not directly linked to the university but located on campus. They are very experienced in complaints common for students, international knowledge workers, and highly skilled professionals.
Overview of our healthcare institutions:
- Company doctor and health & safety service (employees)
The company doctor for employees and the occupational health and safety service for employees are provided by an external service. For details see the Absence and reintegration page.
The most obvious reason for a dental visit is a tooth ache. It's commonly said that you should see a dentist twice a year. Inside building De Sleutel (no 58 on the campus map), you will find dental practice Huizinga. In the same building, you can find a GP medical centre.
Basic Dutch health insurance does not cover dental costs.
Visit the website of the Campus Dentist for more information.
You can consult a dietician if you are experiencing issues regarding eating or drinking or if you have questions about nutrition or changes to your weight. Dietician Marike ten Oever is available by appointment. She holds her consulting hours inside the Sports Centre or the GP medical centre.
Check out the website of Dietist Ten Oever for more information.
- Emergency Clinic/After-Hours Clinic (Spoedpost)
If you need medical assistance during the evening, night-time or on the weekend, you should contact the Spoedpost (Emergency Center):
- Enschede +31 88 555 1188
- Hengelo +31 88 555 1155
Remember to have your health insurance card and your Citizen Service Number (BSN) ready.
You must always call the Spoedpost before visiting. Perhaps telephone advice is sufficient, or a doctor or ambulance will be sent to you immediately. Otherwise, you can schedule an appointment. Check your insurance cover as there may be additional costs.
Check for more information the Spoedpost website (in English).
