Wageningen Campus is a special place for students and employees alike. The campus is home to the research institutes Wageningen University & Research (WUR), the NIOO-KNAW Netherlands Institute of Ecology, and various other businesses and organisations such as FrieslandCampina and (beginning in 2018) Unilever. The campus also features a large number of employee and student startups. It is an environment filled with opportunities to meet people who can help you get further in your career.
Good facilities are essential for a top-notch institute. WUR has access to state-of-the-art laboratories with high-quality equipment that you can use when conducting your research. Our unique buildings also provide a wonderful work environment for everyone.
The campus is located in a lush environment and there are several ponds. It is a great place to take walks during your lunch break or to sit in the grass when the weather is nice. There is a supermarket on the campus, along with various food stands and a day-care centre.
With a sports card, you can participate in a wide range of athletics at the Sports Centre de Bongerd. This sports centre is also located on campus.
Wageningen is centrally located within the Netherlands: it only takes an hour to get to Amsterdam or the beach and you can reach neighbouring Germany in just a half hour.
