The only campus-based university in the Netherlands

The University of Twente is proud to be the only campus-based university in the Netherlands. Our campus boasts a variety of facets, ranging from a park-like landscape and open air architectural museum to a hub for ‘golden ideas’ and a 'living lab'. It’s a place where education, research, accommodation, sports, culture, festivals and student life come together.

Accommodation, sports and cultural facilities

Our accommodation, sports and cultural facilities are unique and we host events such as the world's largest student think tank, Create Tomorrow. The largest student sports event in the Netherlands, the Batavieren Race, is also one of the legends of the Twente campus. The campus at Twente makes an ideal living environment - it's a hive of activity and a truly inspirational place to be!
