Activities on Campus

Activities for non-university groups

The University of Twente not only offers a wide range of facilities and activities for its own community but also for groups from outside the university. Below we provide an overview of the possibilities.


Even if you’re not a member of the university you can purchase a sports card for the Sports Centre so that you use the sports facilities of the UT. For more information see The halls and rooms of the Sports Centre can be hired for things like corporate events etc. Check out the Sports Centre website to see all the possibilities.


VRIJHOF cultural centre organizes a wide range of performances and shows that are open to a wide public. For a current overview see The (theatre) auditoriums of VRIJHOF can also be booked by groups from outside the university. 

Every month VRIJHOF presents new exhibitions, with the aim of providing the widest possible range of content. The exhibitions and openings are open to everyone who is interested. Check out the VRIJHOF calendar for the current exhibitions.
