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 main building at the Van Bijnkerslaan (used by all students), the close by Annex (used by secondary students) and the Pionier (used by DP students). 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 ready to move into at the start of the 2026-27 academic year. Before we move to Utrecht Science Park, however, we will first move to a semi-pemanent building at Utrecht Papendorp. This not only allows the school to grow to 1200 students, but is also means that we will finally have all students under one roof again.
Upcoming move to Utrecht Papendorp in August 2023
We will move to a semi-permanent school building at the Marinus van Tyruslaan at Utrecht Papendorp in August 2023. The available plot is close to the bridge to Leidsche Rijn and very easy to reach by bike, car, and public transport (the bus stop is very close to the projected entrance to the school). In this building we will be able to house 1200 students. Our after school care partner Kind & Co will also use the building offering after school care clubs for various age groups.
Constructor Directbouw was formally awarded the tender and in the picture to the left you can see their design for the building. It will be a single storey building for max 1200 students in the shape of an eight, wrapped around two green open spaces where we can meet and mingle.
Both in those central spaces and next to the building, there will be enough space to play outside. There will of course also be space to park bikes and cars. In the coming months we will discuss the construction of a semi-permanent sports hall next to the school. There already is an outdoor sports facility close to the school which we will be able to use.
Over the coming months constructor Directbouw will finalise the design. We will of course keep you updated.
Permanent Campus at Utrecht Science Park
At the start of the 2026-2027 school year the school will move into our permanent campus at the Cambridgelaan in Utrecht Science Park. 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.
