The Hague University of Applied Sciences was formed as the result of a merger of 14 smaller institutions of higher professional education on 1 September 1987. Technische Hogeschool Rijswijk (TH Rijswijk) later merged with the institution in 2003 and was relocated to the Delft campus in 2009. The main campus in The Hague was finished in 1996. The 82,000 square metre site was designed by architects Atelier Pro and took from 1990 to 1996 to complete. The campus is designed with several teaching wings with classrooms and laboratories spanning out from an oval shape atrium.
