Extraordinary living & learning experience

Study in a former prison

The terrain of the former Cupola prison is transformed into a university campus: a modern and cutting edge learning environment with classrooms, lab facilities, work – and meeting areas, a start-up incubator, a film theatre and a Cupola Café- in an iconic historical monument.

The proximity to the city center and the green lung around the cupola, equipped with sunny terraces, 240 student studios, a supermarket and a “green mobility” hub complements the ecosystem of the building and invites students to linger and explore.

You will feel energized by stepping into a historical building transformed into a think tank full of innovators, researchers and forward thinkers who get together to create future-forming ideas.

We see the cupola as an upside-down telescope that helps to change the perspective and invites you to see the world from another angle. Let’s use this ecosystem and its ocean of opportunities to connect, exchange knowledge and shape a new world.

It’s the perfect location for everyone who needs fresh air, a change of perspective and to refuel new energy and creativity.

The City of Haarlem

Our Campus is located at Haarlem, a city of remarkable history, featuring great culture, cafés, shops, restaurants and nightlife. Besides, the home of some of the Netherlands’ best museums and world-famous art is regularly voted as one of the country’s best cities for shopping. Its own vibrant pulse, created by historic waterways, cobbled streets and ancient buildings provides unadulterated inspiration and first rate entertainment.

Other than that, the cultural charm of the historic city, its proximity and frequently running trains to Amsterdam offer space for economic innovation as well as entrepreneurial vision. Especially businesses in up-and- coming sectors including young digital businesses, creative manufacturing, circular economy as well as life sciences and health found their way to Haarlem, creating a hub for highly-educated professionals and entrepreneurs.

Just a stone throw away from Amsterdam

Living in Haarlem has numerous benefits.

The city captivates with beautiful canals, a lively community and beaches just around the corner. Another decisive advantage of Haarlem is it’s proximity to the heart of the Netherlands – Amsterdam.

The capital of the Netherlands can be reached within a 11 minute train ride up to 148 times per day and gives access to iconic landmarks, deep culture and beautiful sceneries.

Prepare yourself to become able to lead and organize sustainable and inclusive human resource processes, to complement data analysis in the area of marketing and customer service and to support more strategic change management operations.
