Start construction of the new education building Echo

Another education building is in the making. The construction of Echo will start November 11th and will take two years: at the start of the 2021-2022 academic year you will be able to follow courses in the brand new building!

The growing number of students in combination with the need for larger and more flexible educational spaces has led to the development of an additional educational building.

What do you notice about the work?
Although the work is noticeable, nuisance is limited as much as possible. During the exam period there are no noise causing activities. For example, a number of piles are drilled into the ground instead of being hammered. Furthermore, the accessibility of the area is guaranteed: with the exception of a few short road closures, for example for transport, you can access all roads.

Extra study places, sustainable and energy-neutral
Just like the Pulse education building, Echo will be used for all faculties and study programmes. A total of 1,700 teaching places and 360 study places will be provided here! The emphasis at Echo is on medium-sized and large education halls, varying from 64 to 700 people. Some rooms can be flexibly partitioned or merged. Echo also offers many opportunities to meet fellow students, with good catering facilities and longer opening hours. The design and layout of Echo meet high sustainability standards and the building will be energy-neutral. The area around Echo will become greener in the coming years, with more designated areas for pedestrians and cyclists.
