The Harmonie complex, which houses most of the arts faculty, no longer meets the demands of its users. Facilities manager Rein van den Bos they aspire to renovate the complex. ‘We working on a meticulous plan with an external adviser. It would be great if we could renovate the building. But theoretically speaking, all options are open.’

During a breakfast session on February 14, student assessors, programme committee members, study association representatives and the faculty board were given the opportunity to express their wishes for the new faculty. There will be other opportunities to contribute. 

Law is moving

The arts faculty is currently spread out across buildings in the city centre, but the change would corral all programmes in the same building. ‘It would make it easier for the staff to work together more closely’, says Van den Bos. The visibility of the faculty is another factor. 

The Faculty of Law, also partially housed in the Harmonie complex, will be moving to the old public library building in the Oude Boteringestraat in 2023. Plans for the new housing for the arts faculty should be finished and approved by then.
