Students and staff support refugees

Together with Saxion University of Applied Sciences and the ROC van Twente, the University of Twente announced their willingness to contribute to a warm welcome for refugees coming to Enschede and the Twente region. The announcement has led to many spontaneous ideas by employees and students of the university. By bundling these great initiatives, the UT hopes to be of added value. A few actions have been launched already.
