Dennis Trip - Security advisor

Most of us don't think about security until something happens, which is a good thing. This means that we enjoy a safe environment at our schools. Nevertheless, it is good to stay alert of each other and your surroundings. With 40 to 42 thousand students and 4 to 5 thousand staff, it's always possible that something happens.

Lies Leijs - Student Counsellor

It is our aim to offer easily accessible help. We won’t make a drama out of things, although, of course, it sometimes is. The main thing is that the door is always open. Students have nothing to lose by walking in. There are professionals here to help you.
