Radboud’s special facilities

Global Lounge

The Global Lounge is a meeting place for internationals and hosts events and activities for Radboud’s international community. At its International Staff Information Desk you will be informed about matters related to working at Radboud and living in the Netherlands, like conditions of employment, public transport, a Dutch letter you received, etc.

Buddy programme

Once you start working in Nijmegen, you will have contacts such as your nominator, fellow members of the research team and so on. These are people you can easily turn to with questions about your new environment. And of course your Radboud Excellence Hospitality Officer is always available to help.

However, Radboud’s International Staff Support also organizes the so-called ‘Buddy programme’, through which you can be connected with a Dutch staff member who can help you find your way in your new environment – not just with official matters but also with your social life. You will receive an invitation around the time of your arrival in Nijmegen.
