Cultural Associations on Campus

Many cultural activities take place on the campus of the University of Twente. Performances, concerts, exhibitions and courses, everything is covered. The campus offers space for students to become members of the many different associations that exist. In the Vrijhof, various cultural associations, organized entirely by students, can give space to their creativity. A large part of the cultural offerings Vrijhof Culture is partly created by the cultural associations. The weekly rehearsals ensure a dazzling performance at the end of the academic year.

Facilities and support

To realize these productions, the cultural associations can contact Vrijhof Culture for everything related to the facilities in the Vrijhof. Also for general support in realizing the activities organized by the cultural associations.
