Sustainability Hub

With the Sustainability Hub, UM creates a dedicated space for collaboration and knowledge exchange amongst the different initiatives and students active in sustainability. The aim of the Hub is to support students who want to take an active role in sustainability, be it as a volunteer or as a part of a project or organisation. The Student Sustainability Hub is a temporary location available for meetings, workshops, small-scale events and other activities related to sustainability.


The Sustainable UM2030 Taskforce has started collaborating with the student-led network KlimaatActie Netwerk (KAN) Maastricht to create the Student Sustainability Hub in our Tapijn A building. The UM Green Office supports the development of the Hub to become a breeding ground for student initiatives on sustainability. UM Green Office promotes sustainability within the student community and on campus.

Tapijn A

The building Tapijn A has not been renovated yet, so facilities are limited and low-tech. Tapijn A is a characteristic and historical building, suitable for experimental initiatives for a sustainable world. The Hub is there for students, but UM employees are also very welcome to join.
