Breda University of Aplied Sciences is developing an optimal, qualitatively high-grade and up-to-date learning and working environment in the shape of a campus at location Mgr. Hopmansstraat in Breda, the NetherlandsWatch location at Google Maps.
Why a campus?
The idea is that a campus environment will be an invitation for people to meet one another. This will offer even more possibilities to inspire one another and exchange knowledge. The campus will promote academic success and valuable interaction as well as cross-overs in flexible spaces. As a result, the campus will contribute to an excellent international image.
Where will the campus be situated?
The purchase of the convent at Mgr. Hopmansstraat 2-4 has created the possibility of accommodating 5 academies plus all supporting staff centrally in one campus location. The planned area comprises the current NHTV premises (Mgr. Hopmansstraat 1 and 15), the convent premises (Mgr. Hopmansstraat 2), and the plot to be potentially purchased at Beverweg and the public space that lies in between.
When will the campus be finished?
The development of the new campus is a large-scale project which will last a couple of years. The campus is scheduled to be completed in the year 2020.
What will be on campus?
Our study programmes are currently accommodated at four locations in Breda. When the campus is finished, everything comes together at location Mgr. Hopmansstraat. There will also be a large multimedia library in the convent, a business centre in the current main building and there will be restaurants, and recreational and sports facilities.
Social Community Area
All five academies will have a recognisable place and identity in the campus. There will also be a central meeting place, where an important part of the joint activities will take place. After all, knowledge development and education extend beyond individual disciplines and academies.
Business Community Area
Our external partners are welcome to the campus to jointly work out knowledge projects and education. Whenever this is useful and possible, these visitors will also be facilitated in a broader sense, just think of temporary workstations, seats to meet, and an incubator.
