Long Time Strategy for Housing

Citadel - Rehousing ITC

The Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) will be housed on campus.

ITC is currently located at Hengelosestraat in the Enschede city centre. This faculty will find it's new home in a new building at the central O&O Square.


To accomodate the ITC we build a thirteen story building at the location of the current Citadel building. The height will be comparable with the nearby Horsttoren. The plan requirements are set and will be incorporated in the final design.


  • Relocation of current Citadel building residents (such as UCT ATLAS, ICTS Service Desk, and the Educational Support Services)
  • Pull down old Citadel building, first half year 2018
  • Build new Citadel building, 2018-2019
  • Moving in ITC in Citadel building, beginĀ 2020
