Building new perspectives
From 2017 to 2026, work is carried out within the third phase of the Campus under Development project (CIOIII). This phase is just as drastic as the previous phases: large-scale renovations, new construction and a renewal of the south side of the campus. Finally, demolition will take place to give the north side of campus more growth and nature.
Here you will find the original publication that was issued about CIO III, then planned for 2017-2020. In the meantime, CIO III has been extended to 2026.
Due to the shift in planning, the large-scale renovation of the monumental Tinbergen Building has been postponed until 2023. The highest building of the university was built between 1963 and 1970 to a design by architect Cornelis Elffers. With the new design by architectural firm Cepezed from Delft, the building meets the technical and functional requirements of our time, and it responds to future changing use, taking into account the monumental qualities of the building. A spacious void and staircase will connect different entrance levels and create a spatial public heart with interesting views. The hall will have lively functions such as a coffee bar, information point, study areas and restaurant. Sustainability and a healthy indoor climate are two important spearheads in the renovation.
When the renovation of the Tinbergen Building starts, the guidelines will be followed that must lead to a sustainability label BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method). The ambition level is BREEAM-NL Excellent, the second highest level.
Transformation of S Building
Until 2022, S Building was known as the Sports Centre, where you could work up a sweat or hang out in the Sport Café. After the realization of the new Sports Building next to Sanders Building in 2022, Erasmus Sport moved out of S Building. Currently, S Building is being transformed to an Exam Centre. The exam hall will temporarily move from van der Goot Building to S Building in the summer of 2023.
From September 2023 onwards, the Exam Centre in S Building will be the main location for exams at EUR. The reason for this is that there is a renovation planned in Van der Goot Building for the coming years, which would cause too much noise disturbance during exams. In 2026, the renovations in Van der Goot Building are expected to be completed, after which the exam location can move back there. The S Building will then likely be demolished.
