Student life in Maastricht

The years you study are a time to remember. Certainly when you are a student in Maastricht. The city is very lively and is the most international student city of the Netherlands. The campus of the Hotel Management School Maastricht is very unique. It is where students live, study and take practical lessons in the Teaching Hotel or student restaurant Refresh.

The campus is located on the grounds of a castle, with a canal, gardens and a beautiful park. As a student, you experience student life in a completely new way. You are surrounded by beautiful nature while you have easy access to all the amenities, culture and nightlife that Maastricht has to offer. The city center is only a 15-minute bike ride or a 10-minute bus ride away.

Campus life - School & student housing

The school is located in a modern building with all the facilities to offer excellent education. A unique classroom for gastronomy, private project rooms and an extensive library (also online) with sufficient study space, are just a few features that will make studying in Maastricht at our hotel school the right choice for your future.

As a first-year student, you will live on campus for a whole academic year. This experience is partly educational but mostly for fun! You will learn to live together with other students and deal with the challenges of sharing a living space. This way, you will develop important skills to become successful in the hospitality industry.

On campus your student life starts. You will make new friends and establish relationships for life. 

We are currently working on the construction of new student residences. The first two buildings are ready in September 2020 and in February 2021 the third building opens its doors. So you come to live in a modern new building! Curious as to what they will look like? Follow us on Facebook and stay informed!

Working life – Teaching Hotel & Refresh

During your time at the hotel school in Maastricht, you will gain practical experience in the Teaching Hotel and student restaurant Refresh. This gives you the opportunity to directly apply your theoretical knowledge. This combination of theory and practice takes education at the Hotel Management School Maastricht to a higher level.

A day in the working life of a hotel management student is never the same. One day you are responsible for the housekeeping of the Teaching Hotel. The next day you take care of our guests in restaurant L’Étoile or help with the daily lunch for hundreds of students and staff.

Social life - Amphitryon & Maastricht

Naturally, Student life in Maastricht is not complete without a few parties! Luckily, our student association Amphitryon has a bar on campus where parties and events take place regularly. The city center of Maastricht is a stone’s throw from the campus. This makes it easy to enjoy all the fun things Maastricht has to offer. Read our blogs about events and festivals in Maastricht to see what enjoyable things you can do.
