The Haarlem Campus is located in an admirable, historic building which goes by the name "The Koepel" aka cupola.
The cupola has been through an incredible transformation over the last few years, from a former prison into a business hub. It’s now a modern and cutting edge learning environment with classrooms, labs, co-working space, meeting rooms, a café, a movie theatre and even a start-up incubator. All this, within an iconic historical monument.
Just a few steps away, you’ll find 250 brand-new apartments available to students, to allow you to live and learn on campus for a fully immersive experience.
Step into the building, and you’ll feel energised to work together on ideas and projects that shape the future. It’s a place where innovators, researchers, and forward thinkers all come together and build the future.The city centre is just minutes away and the cupola is in a vibrant area, with sunny terraces, a supermarket and a shared mobility hub all on the doorstep.
Haarlem Campus is not just somewhere you come to study. The students are part of an international community, and meeting people from different backgrounds and cultures, working together, and learning from each other is a part of everyday life. There’s never a dull moment at Haarlem Campus: events, social activities and networking opportunities are organised all year round to help you grow a game-changing network outside the classroom
