Locations of NWERC on De Uithof

NWERC happens at university "campus" De Uithof.

Warning about food: the campus is not the lively place in weekends as it is during the week. On Friday evening, you can get dinner (pizza or simple meal) until around 20:00 h. Don't count on being able to buy breakfast (or anything else) at De Uithof on Saturday or Sunday morning, but have it in your ho(s)tel or the city centre.

Both the Educatorium and Minnaert are buildings under architecture: Rem Koolhaas / OMA designed the Educatorium and Neutelings/Riedijk created the Minnaert. There's more architectural highlights to see at the university complex; see this website for a closer look into this subject.
