From the sixties of the previous century, the Policy Academy was vested in the former De Wijert seminary in Apeldoorn. It was not exactly a good fit and even after a series of small renovations, it was always a question of making do. This is why at the beginning of 2000 it was decided to leave this historic building in order to occupy a new building elsewhere. Ultimately, the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations did not consider this a good idea. The seminary is located in a beautiful spot with lots of greenery and ample parking. The Atelier Pro en Leon Thier created a new, impressive design. The monumental chapel was fully retained in its original style and now functions as a meeting room and restaurant. The former inner court of the preparatory seminary is spanned by 25-metre tall curved trusses and forms the core of the new school.
