The ISUtrecht is located in the Transwijk area, west of the Utrecht city centre. The main campus can be found at the Van Bijnkershoeklaan 8.
The school is currently spread over a semi-permanent building at the Van Bijnkerslaan (used by all students), the Annex (used by secondary students) two doors up at the corner of the Van Bijkershoeklaan and Grebbeberglaan and the Pionier (used by DP students) at the Grebbeberglaan. The ISUtrecht is in the process of securing a long-term permanent location to house 1200 students at the Cambridgelaan on the Utrecht Science Park. At present, it looks like this campus should be finished during the 2024-25 academic year.
The coming years
Over the coming years, the school will keep growing towards 1200 students, planned for the permanent location. With the latest addition of 10 extra classrooms to the main campus (New Block, August 2020), we have sufficient space for the current enrolment of 900 students, but we can’t grow to 1200 students. The school board together with the municipality of Utrecht are currently trying to find more classroom space in the vicinity of the current campus at the Van Bijnkershoeklaan. As soon as there is more news about extra classrooms, we will update this information.
We are very pleased to present you with the impressions of our permanent school building, designed by a consortium led by architect Gideon de Jong from SVP Architectuur en Stedenbouw and Marcel Blom from Cross Architecture.
The younger students will enter the building at the ground floor, finding cosy, enclosed learning spaces and outside play areas. This level will also house a Kind&Co nursery. The older students will enter the building on the first floor to find their grade level classrooms and shared spaces, as well as a library, maker spaces, school cafetaria, gym courts, outdoor terraces and a theatre. At the heart of the new building there will be great spaces for music, dance, drama and visual arts, something that is really important to our school community. The school will have its own sports fields and multiple play areas.
Virtual reality tour
The architects commissioned two films in which you will be taken on a virtual reality tour of the new building. They also take the time to explain the thought process behind their vision on our permanent campus.
