Organisation

Location

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 ready to move into at the start of the 2026-27 academic year.

The coming years

If the school manages to secure additional teaching space, the school will keep growing towards 1200 students, planned for the permanent location. We currently have an enrolment of 930 students (Feb 2022). The school board together with the municipality of Utrecht started a tender procedure to build a temporary campus at Utrecht Papendorp to house 1200 students. As soon as we will know whether this tender is successful, we will update this page.

Permanent Campus

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.
