“It is such a beautiful building to visit and to take a picture of. As it is located nicely in the centre of the city, I love taking a walk around the area, visiting the building and proudly saying that I'm a UU student :)”


“This is the heart of all academic ceremonies. Not only it is architecturally pleasing but also it has witnessed a key event in Dutch history. It is where the Union of Utrecht had been signed, which ultimately led to the formation of the Dutch Republic!”
