Where is Utrecht University? The university is based in Utrecht – a beautiful, bustling city in the geographical centre of the Netherlands. The Netherlands is one of the world's smaller countries, with 16.3 million inhabitants and covering an area of 41,500 square kilometres. Even so, it’s the sixth largest exporter and investor in the world. This is partly thanks to its central location in Western Europe.
