At the opening in 1964, the UT received a special gift from the municipalities in the Twente - East Gelderland region: a bell tower with a carillon. Now, more than half a century later, this tower still stands as the famous Dutch architect Gerrit Rietveld designed it.
The campus community can enjoy the enchanting sounds of 49 bells every day. Not only the automatic playing mechanism ensures that the campus carillon often makes itself heard; students, alumni and employees can learn how to manually play this typical instrument. Both teachers frequently climb the tower as well.
Currently the Campus Carillon Circle has ten members. Would you like to join us? You will have lessons at the bell tower, and for studying a carillon studio in the Vrijhof building is available.
These lessons are possible for employees, alumni and students with a valid Union-/ Campuscard.
• Lessons on Monday afternoon/ evening or Wednesday evening
• Teachers: Hylke Banning (city carillonneur of Oldenzaal) or Esther Schopman (city carillonneur of Enschede)
