Join our 70 years ITC anniversary 

ITC provides ACCOMMODATION IN WELL-FURNISHED ROOMS AT THE ITC INTERNATIONAL HOTEL (IIH) for all enrolled candidates in the Geo-information Science and Earth Observation Graduate, Degree, Diploma or Certificate programmes.

The hotel is located in the centre of Enschede, close to the ITC Faculty and close to the railway station, shopping centre, market and post-office. Additional facilities include a 24-hour reception, a self-service laundry, a bar operated by the student union, and other recreation areas.


At walking distance, you will find the shopping area, restaurants, cafés, museums, police, railway- and bus station. The hotel is within walking or cycling distance of all the things you may need on a day to day basis. The distance between the hotel and the ITC main building is little over one kilometre. It is only a short walk but you will find out many students cover this distance by bicycle because cycling is one of the main means of transportation in the Netherlands. Route map
