A hallmark of the UNorthwest education programs is the emphasis on the relational and collaborative nature of learning. In addition to the manifold educational and didactical approaches the University cultivates a campus based learning ethos that embraces a highly stimulating learning experience, and cares for supportive relationships among students, faculty and staff.
In order to achieve these goals and objectives residential settings were rented in 2010 in the famous historical Abbey Rolduc located in Kerkrade (NL). Here the University houses administrative offices, a computer room, a video-conference center, a library (200.000 vol.) as well as lecture and conference facilities. Complete room and board services for students are also available.
Rolduc, with its comprehensive range of facilities, provides an inspiring backdrop for any meeting, presentation or conference. The Abbey complex has 16 conference rooms with capacities varying from 10 to 450 persons. In addition, a number of lecture rooms (10 – 25 persons) are available on demand.
The original abbey rooms have been renovated and adapted to suit modern times with due respect to tradition. State-of-the-art audiovisual equipment and other functional aids are available.
The use of proper audio-visual equipment is essential to the success of meetings, presentation or conference. At Rolduc we have a wide range of audio-visual aids available. Car-parking is available free of charge
