thé Spot For Arts & Events

Are you a real culture vulture? Than our campus is the place to be: performances, lectures, concerts, comedy, dance shows, exhibition, everything can be found here. You can even participate yourself. 

The Vrijhof is thé centre for cultural activities and events. Besides the aforementioned activities you can find many cultural associations and coursus. You can learn all about photograpy or make music at an orchestra, choir or big band. Do you want to start your own band or cultural activity? All is possible here!

Also as an individual you can give free rein to your creativity. There are multiple studios where you can practice on piano, your wind instrument or drums. Furthermore, you can practice with a band in one of the popstudios and the Vrijhof has a carillon studio. Here you can (learn to) play our own bell tower - which is designed by the famous architect Gerrit Rietveld. 

Last but not least there are a number of artworks to be found in the Vrijhof ánd on campus. For instance, you can find the tip of an church tower coming from the water across from the Theatercafé. Is Enschede a flood zone after all? Did a church sink here? This is exactly what Wim T. Schippers invisioned when building this artwork. This is the 'Torentje van Drienerlo' (Tower of Drienerlo) and it symbolises the leaving behind of ecclesiastical dogmas with new scientific findings. Quite deep... that insight, not the pond.
