University College Roosevelt (UCR) is one of the international honors colleges of Utrecht University, one of the leading universities in the Netherlands and in Europe. UCR was founded in 2004 with a campus in the heart of Middelburg (Zeeland). The name ‘University College Roosevelt’ encompasses three core features that make us a unique place within modern education.

First, we are part of Utrecht University, offering a Liberal Arts and Sciences program of high quality with approximately 200 courses from four academic departments (Arts and Humanities, Social Science, and Science and Engineering) - all delivered in English. We allow students to construct their own Bachelor’s programme, based on their interests, strengths, and passions, whilst enabling them to continue to top Master’s programmes all over the world. At UCR, classes are never larger than 25 students and include continuous assessment as well as a high level of interaction with fellow students and instructors. Instructors have great freedom in designing their courses, and work within an environment that firmly has teaching as its priority, whilst also supporting undergraduate and faculty research.

Second, we are a residential college, and therefore a small and tight-knit community consisting of approximately 500 students from all over the world and a small number of dedicated faculty and staff (of in total around 75 colleagues). All students live, learn, and socialize on a small, residential, inner-city campus where they form a highly active student body.

Third, UCR is named for Franklin Delano and Eleanor Roosevelt, President and first Lady of the United States from 1932 until 1945. The Roosevelt family is believed to originate from Zeeland. Without being associated with any political part or organization, UCR is inspired by their internationalism and belief in human rights.

Diversity is one of our core values and one of our strategic priorities. We strive to create and maintain working and learning environments that are inclusive, equitable and welcoming. We believe that diversity and international activities enhance the quality of education and research. Hence, we are always looking for people who can enhance diversity on our campus thanks to their background and experience.
