Modern learning facilities

By welcoming more light into the building with more glass, open corridors and open spaces, we created a working and learning environment that stimulates socialising and provides inspiration. The main hall has plenty of room to meet and greet guests or take a break and eat. The Media Centre has become more accessible. Now it’s more than a place just to borrow books and learn. It’s also a place to do research, collaborate and co-create or work in silence. 

We know that the nature of education is changing. Teachers collaborate with sector professionals in fluid, flexible teams to support their students’ learning path. In teaching today, we see less classical contact time and more of a coaching role. A hybrid style of education combining online and offline is indispensable, which means more flexible education. For example, we can facilitate a resit exam online, guaranteeing the progression of study. Our onsite multimedia studio facilitates online video content and masterclasses. Later, students can further explore their learning on campus through dialogue, discussion, and research.

Our participation in (inter)national accreditations and quality audits keep us continuously connected with academia and the international industry and provides the information we need to keep progressing. By offering innovative and adaptive educational programmes in a modern, true-to-life learning environment, we can continue improving and being international leaders in hospitality education. The new campus is a futureproof foundation in which we continue to grow a strong culture that embraces change.

Innovative building management

Smart sensors installed throughout the entire building provide real-time information into the availability of flex desks, consultation rooms, meeting rooms, and classroom. Along with temperature and energy consumption, we can manage big data at no risk to anyone’s privacy. This insight means that we can continue to improve the quality of our education programmes and the feeling of well-being on campus. Ultimately, it means a place where our community loves to teach, work and study. The new campus provides a more experiential and better-equipped modern learning environment.


The place to be

Our education is about knowledge transfer, training of skills and qualifying our students with a diploma. Besides this, we want to offer the first-hand experience of a community. The new campus better aligns with students’ needs as a home of knowledge transfer, research, and a connectivity hub. A campus is a place where you want to stick around to meet fellow students, lecturers, instructors and industry figures. The building has become more open by literally breaking down the walls, and connectivity is a logical result. Creativity and innovation are as visible as the buzz in the restaurants. The Amsterdam Campus was renovated with the same intention and using digital systems, and we can cooperate and explore the synergy between campuses with students and staff.


“Students have fresh minds and bring innovation. We respond as coaches.”

What exactly is a sticky campus?

In the digital age with online learning and, at the same time, observing the effects of the pandemic forcing work and study from home, the idea of a campus where students can socialise again and participate in active learning is even more critical now. A campus where students want to spend time, where students want to ‘stick’.
