Tilburg University

  Warandelaan 2      (+31) 134 66 91 11     more than a year ago

The University of Tilburg was established in 1927 as a Catholic business school. Now, many years later, it's the leading university in the Netherlands in business studies and its Faculty of Economics is the third most renowned in Europe. Its many high-rise university buildings are surrounded by woodland so the higher floors offer superb views of the greenery outside and the Tilburg skyline. Roughly 12,000 students study here at six different faculties every day, or at least the ones that aren't hungover from the often exhausting student lifestyle. Student housing surrounds the hundreds of square meters of university buildings and there’s even a supermarket and a student pub on the premises.
An amusing piece of trivia: In the 1980s all higher vocational education institutes received permission to call themselves universities. This caused a problem for the Katholieke Hogeschool Tilburg, as it was called then. Because Catholic University Tilburg would stand for a rather inappropriate abbreviation (kut, a very rude Dutch word for the female genitalia) for a while the University opted to call itself Catholic University Brabant. In 2001 the university received the name it now carries, but in international circles it's often known as Tilburg University.
