Our hotel is located on the University of Twente campus, where the vibrancy of UT gives way to the tranquility of nature. A superb location, with the bustling city life of Enschede and Hengelo just a few minutes away.  

On campus

Nature and science compete for precedence at the extensive site of the University of Twente. Here and there you see students, professors and visitors on their way, or simply relaxing. There is a world for U Parkhotel guests to explore. 

You have access to lots of campus facilities, including the outdoor theatre, sports centre and swimming pools. You can immerse yourself in culture on a journey of discovery along the Campus Art Route. And you can enjoy a wonderful bike ride along the surrounding (forest) paths on an U Bicycle.

Pick up an U Bicycle!

The bike is your best friend when you're out and about in the environment of U Parkhotel. Close enough to reach the city within ten minutes, peaceful enough to be able to soak up everything you see along the way. We can supply you with U Bicycles for rent.

Eating, drinking, culture and shopping

Do you enjoy eating out, the theatre or visiting museums? Both Enschede and Hengelo have a great museum (Rijksmuseum Twenthethe Museumfabriek and Oyfo techniekmuseum), a cosy theatre and lots of first-class addresses where you can indulge in a fabulous meal. What's more Enschede provides the ultimate shopping experience.
