Renovation of Lecture Hall building starts on Monday 18 April 2022

14 April 2022

The Lecture Hall building will be renewed: the lecture halls and restaurant will be renovated, and the current entrance will be demolished. A new entrance with a wide, appealing staircase to the first floor will be built directly to the Campusplein. The renovation will be carried out in phases so that education can continue. The renovation is expected to be completed in 2023.

New entrance and balcony

In the first phase of the renovation, the Lecture Hall building will get a new entrance and the facade on the 1st floor of the restaurant will be renewed. The entrance to the Lecture Hall building will be on the new campus square. A wide, inviting staircase will lead you to the 1st floor of the building.

From Monday 18 April 2022 preparations will start in the former restaurant. The restaurant will no longer be accessible from that date. The lecture halls can still be used.
