Campus Leeuwarden

Great facilities at a beautiful location!

Our location in Leeuwarden has everything you need. For example, it has an extensive library, several laboratories, technology halls, greenhouses on the roof, an animal shelter and a Grand Café to relax every now and then.

All students will receive a personal e-mail address with which they can log on to one of the many computers inside the building to check study results, schedule changes and other current affairs. Refreshments are available via Cormet Campus Catering.

The school building in Leeuwarden was designed by Atelier PRO, an architectural firm based in The Hague, and was built with high-quality natural materials. The in-house water purification system and the greenhouses on the roof are striking features of the building. The spacious (practice) areas and the substantial amount of natural light make for pleasant study and work conditions in Leeuwarden.

VHL University of Applied Sciences (VHL) is a nine-minute walk from Leeuwarden central station.


VHL University of Applied Sciences (VHL) offers extensive library facilities. You can find good and reliable information via the catalogue and in databases. More information on the library is available at service provision.

From now on, there is one go-to point within VHL for any questions regarding the broad field of copyright – this is the information point for copyright.

It is often difficult to seek and find good information. Many students and members of staff can also use help in the processing of this information. You can find more information on this on the Library page.
