The Student Hotel: concerns among politicians and Maastricht hotels

MAASTRICHT. Of the 378 rooms in The Student Hotel, planned in the Eiffel building at the Boschstraat, on average a maximum of 98 rooms may be let as hotel rooms each year.

Nineteen bicycles stolen in Randwijck

MAASTRICHT. Randwijck is suffering a wave of bicycle thefts. Nineteen bicycles have disappeared from the locked bicycle storage under the university library since July. “A very disturbing case, we don’t know what to do,” says location manager Allert Andela.
The Run of the Germans

The Run of the Germans

I get to the library around 8:15 and there’s already a huge queue waiting at the centre of the glass windows. As its namesake would suggest, the Running of the Germans is a Maastricht phenomenon in which German students line up before the opening of the library to vie for the best study spot.

Education goes on, even in wartime

MAASTRICHT/YEMEN. What do you do when you’re working with lecturers from a country where war breaks out? When half of your students flee the city and go into hiding with friends and family, and the dean, in Malaysia for work, can’t get back in the country? You carry on, as best you can.
Political Upheavals

Political Upheavals

On October 10, a peace protest in Ankara was shattered by the explosion of two bombs which killed at least 95 people. This also created much fear and upset among the population of Istanbul and of course also among us, who are only guests in this country.

Stephanie (22): “I have eating bouts. When I’m in my room alone in the evening, I can’t control myself. Afterwards, I feel really miserable. What can I do?” Ingrid: After working all day, I usually come home hungry. Because I first have to cook, I eat snacks. Crisps, nuts, a slice of cheese or sausage. Delicious. I even l...

New UM website online in December

MAASTRICHT. It will finally go live in December: Maastricht University’s new website.
