New to the community

Welcome to Maastricht, one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands!

Taking up a post abroad can be a daunting experience, not only for you but for your family as well. Coming from another country to work here makes you part of a diverse and growing community, within the Maastricht region as well as the university.

The Knowledge Centre for International Staff relieves you from the stress of moving home and helps you smooth your way into a new job and new community. We see it as our mission to help you to feel welcome in the region as soon as possible. To do so, KCIS regularly organises Meet & Greet gatherings for new and current staff.

You can also follow KCIS on Twitter and stay informed of exciting social and cultural events in the region.
