Johanna is the very newest student complex which the SSH has built on the Bisschopssteeg in Utrecht Science Park (De Uithof). Here 655 students live in the clouds! It is a stunning building, with a facade covered with authentic blue and white tiles from the famous ceramics manufacturer Royal Tichelaar Makkum.
De Uithof/ Utrecht Science Park
Utrecht Science Park provides a vibrant, dynamic and exciting place to work, to study and to live. There are about 60.000 visitors everyday! The area is in constant development. In 2016-2017 HU University of Applied Sciences has started the construction of a new building next to Bisschoppen/Salamancapad. This year work also started on The Uithof Tram Line. The Uithof Tram Line will serve as the main transport link for Utrecht Science Park. As of 2018, the tram will connect Utrecht Central Station with Utrecht Science Park by means of an 11-minute service. This construction work will cause noise nuisance for people living in the vicinity.
