Campus tours

Would you like to know what it feels like to work, study or live on the Wageningen Campus? Do you want to learn more about Wageningen University & Research? Or do you want to take a look inside the educational building Forum or the greenhouses of Unifarm? Students of Wageningen University & Research, who have been trained as campus tour guides, offer several types of tours around campus!
