University is situated on a 60 hectare estate. The rich history of the estate
and its Castle goes back to the thirteenth century. You can still see many
historic features in and around the Castle, even though it was damaged and
restored several times over the centuries. On our estate you will find many
sights and monuments, such as the Rosarium, the Koetshuis and our Menagerie.
In 1946, the Netherlands
International Education Institute NOIB was established in the Castle. The
castle and estate were renovated to suit university campus life, and new
facilities were built around the estate's woodlands over the years. Eventually,
NOIB became Nyenrode Business Universiteit.
