Do the workshops include food and accommodation?
Most weekend workshops start after dinner on Friday and finish after dinner on Sunday evening. If you would like to join us for dinner before the workshop, you can book this in advance. It is also possible to arrange to stay overnight afterwards.
We have additional facilities including a coffee shop where you can purchase drinks or snacks. We use an in-house voucher system for payment, which we find to be safe and convenient.
What kind of accommodation do you offer?
We provide dormitory accommodation. All of our dormitories offer semi-private bed spaces and have been recently renovated in an elegant modern style.
We also have a limited number of private rooms available. If you would be interested in staying in a private room during your program, please contact us.
What kind of food do you serve?
We serve mostly vegetarian meals. If you have any other dietary needs, we ask you to provide these for yourself. If you have food allergies or other medical needs please let us know beforehand.
What do I need to bring with me?
When you make a reservation for a program, you will receive a confirmation with information about what to bring.
What should I wear?
Generally, you should wear comfortable casual clothing and bring a few sets of loose pants and t-shirts for dancing, exercises and meditations. If you are participating in a workshop over the weekend, you may wish to bring some stylish clothing to wear in our nightclub. Depending on the season it is also good to have warm clothing suitable for walking on the beautiful Egmond aan Zee dunes and beach.
Do I need an HIV test?
If you stay overnight at the OSHO Humaniversity, you are required to have an HIV negative test result. Since activities in the programs can include close physical contact, participants need to be free of any infectious diseases. The HIV test needs to be not older than one month if it is the first time you are tested, and not older than three months if you have been tested before. It should state that you are free of HIV antibodies 1+2.
The test can also be done when you arrive at the OSHO Humaniversity for a fee of € 42.00.
Do you have a telephone, internet access, and a laundry that I can use?
We have free Wi-Fi access, and coin-operated telephone and laundry machines available at the OSHO Humaniversity.
Are there shops nearby?
Yes. The main shopping street of the village, with supermarkets, drugstores, clothing stores, and cash machines, is a 10 minute walk.
Can I live and work at the Humaniversity?
We welcome new people in our community. The Community Experience Program allows you to live and work with us.
Can you help me to get a visa to come to your center?
After you have paid the full fee of your program, we will send you a letter confirming that your stay is paid for. You can take this letter with you to the embassy to get your visa.
The Humaniversity is a private institution and does not meet the requirements for the issuing of student visas.
Can I stop by and have a look at the Humaniversity?
Yes, you are very welcome. We are open every day from 9:00 to 18:00.
To have a tour of our campus, please come on one of our Open Days, which begin at 15:00 on the first Sunday of each month (excluding January and August). We will give you a general introduction to our work and answer questions about our programs. The day ends at 18:00.
