HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht (HU) and Utrecht University (UU) believe that the academic development of students is shaped not only in the classroom, but also by taking part in various activities alongside their studies, by organising extracurricular activities, or by managing student organisations. Supporting these activities is in keeping with the objectives of the HU and UU as outlined in their respective strategic documents: Ambition Plan of the HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht 2026 (Ambitieplan Hogeschool Utrecht in 2026) and the UU’s Strategic Plan 2025.
