The University of Twente is a secular and non-ideological university. However, we accommodate activities organised by various religious, spiritual and ideological organisations and associations as long as these stay within Dutch law and respect the code of conduct of the University of Twente.
Religious, spiritual and ideological student associations
There are a number of religious, spiritual and ideological student associations. As far as these associations are recognised and facilitated by the Student Union, you can find their contact data on their website.
Student Pastoral Care
- The International Christian Fellowship offers Sunday services, meeting groups and 1-to-1 pastoral care (all in English) for (international) staff and students.
- The Ecumenical Stichting Studenten Pastoraat Enschede has a student chaplain. They organise events related to religion, science and culture and 1 to 1 pastoral care.
Studium Generale organises events and lectures to inspire you. Science is their starting point but sidesteps and interaction with arts and spirituality are part of the offer.
The Sports Centre offers courses and workshops in yoga, meditation and tai-chi.
