    Maastricht School of Management (MSM) is located in an office park near the centre of the city of Maastricht and has the necessary physical resources (classrooms and office space) to support the programs. The MSM building has been designed by Boudewijn Snelder, the architect of the Provincial House of Limburg, and was officially opened by H.R.H. Prince Claus of the Netherlands in 1990.

    The school building was expanded in 1998 to increase the size of the Information Centre (library), to increase the number of offices, and to house a large Conference Hall. The entire school building has wireless internet access and state state-of-the-art facilities.

    There are ten classrooms: one classroom (Function Hall) has a seating capacity of 100, three classrooms have a seating capacity of 40, and six classrooms have a seating capacity of 20. All classrooms are equipped with computer with Internet access, mobile video conference systems with IP and ISDN connection, video and DVD players, black/white board, flipchart and beamer with projection screen. Depending on the needs of the program various classrooms are available, e.g. U-shape, square, board or theatre. There are a number of discussion rooms (capable of accommodating 8 people each) for group-study activities.

    The Conference Hall has a seating capacity of 260, with simultaneous translation capability, and contains video conferencing and audio equipment.

    There are 52 offices for academic and support staff at MSM. Rooms for visiting and adjunct professors are assigned on an as needed basis. MSM has a room dedicated to reproduction and the storage of supplies for the staff. There are copiers on the second floor and third floor for small copy jobs for the staff and the students. The printing of all participant handouts is done in the MSM Reproduction Office.

    A wireless network can be accessed in the whole building and all classrooms are equipped with a desktop pc for teaching and presentations with a direct Internet connection. Movies or presentations can be shown from a beamer on a wide screen from the desktop PC, a DVD player or VHS videotape. A smart-panel helps the teacher to clarify his explanation optimally.

    A comprehensive library, the MSM Information Centre, as well as other learning resources, are available to students and faculty. The Information Centre of the Maastricht School of Management is specialized in the fields of Management, Finance, Information Technology, Operations, Environment, Accounting, Marketing and Economics. It contains about 10,000 books. The majority of the journal subscriptions are in electronic format. In addition, there is a growing collection of research papers from students from all MSM program, theses and cases in electronic format. Newspapers and dictionaries are provided in hard copy.

    An international thesaurus is used to classify the materials.  The Information Centre is open 58.5 hours per week.

    The Library provides high-quality ICT facilities and general services, and acquisition services.

    MSM can also assist in student housing. Please visit the website for more information:
