BG5 is a former hospital building on the Binnengasthuis site and is noted for its pyramid-shaped annex on Vendelstraat. In future, this building will once again house the education and research facilities of the Faculty of Humanities, including not only large teaching spaces but also study spaces and a food and drink outlet. The existing building is currently not suitable for the desired function. As for many other buildings on and around the Binnengasthuis site, a design process is currently under way for this building.
