Utrecht University is based at three locations. The University has a number of buildings in Utrecht's historic city center, where it first originated, in an area officially known as the university quarter. The largest part of the University is located in Utrecht Science Park. The third location is the International Campus on Prins Hendriklaan.
Located in Dom Square in the centre of Utrecht, the University Hall is more than just a monument. It is Utrecht University’s ceremonial heart and its public face. Academic ceremonies including PhD ceremonies, inaugural lectures and the awarding of undergraduate and graduate diplomas, all take place at the University Hall. The location also provides for conferences, meetings, dinners and cultural events.
