Art & culture

On campus, you are surrounded by art at every corner, either indoors or outdoors, which helps students feel incorporated among the art without even entering a gallery or exhibition. However, students can also pay a visit to the Erasmus Gallery, an exhibition centre right on campus. In addition, there are multiple cultural venues across the vibrant Woudestein campus, where events, talks and seminars are often organised for students to join.
