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 in the process of securing a long-term permanent location at the Cambridgelaan on the Utrecht Science Park. At present, it looks like we will be able to start building the permanent location in January 2021. The new campus should be finished in August 2022. To be able to accommodate more students at our current building, we’re currently building another addition, providing us with 10 extra classrooms.
We are very pleased to present you with the first impression of our permanent school building. From a short list of five renowned firms, a consortium led by architect Gideon de Jong from SVP Architectuur en Stedenbouw has been selected in June 2019 by the municipality of Utrecht. As a part state funded school, it is the municipality’s responsibility to provide all schools in Utrecht with fitting accommodation.
The ISUtrecht was part of the selection process and we are very pleased with the preliminary design. Taking into account the requests from our community, the building has been designed to help to maintain strong connections between younger and older students, staff, parents and caregivers. It will also create space to meet, discover and wonder, connect inside and outside and provide great spaces for music, dance, drama and visual arts at the heart of the building.
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.
