About us

Utrecht University is a wide-range, international research university of high standing. We have a strong connection to the city of Utrecht and our roots lie deep in the past (1636). 

Our interdisciplinary research targets four themes: 

We are a trailblazer in the field of modernising educational concepts. Our student pass rate is high.

Our teaching and research are strongly connected. We work together in tight communities. We believe equality, diversity and inclusion are important.

All this provides us with a solid base from which to work with others around the globe on the societal issues of the future.

The premises of Utrecht University will be smoke-free from 1 August 2020.
