The Hub Eindhoven started out in 2007 as an initiative by Lin Pender, later joined by Joost van Dijck, who wanted to organize events for expats and internationals in Eindhoven to help them develop a social network in the city. They set up the foundation called The Hub Eindhoven for Expats in 2011 and were allocated a permanent location by the municipality in 2012. This is the location at Vestdijk 25, right in the city center, where The Hub remains today.


As Lin and Joost were already organizing many activities in local bars and restaurants, it was only logical to keep up the great work in the new location. So the building was renovated by the volunteers and became suitable for different kinds of activities.


We have come a long way from 2007, and have become the most known social hangout place for internationals in the city of Eindhoven. In early 2018, The Hub was changed again, to modernize and professionalize this hangout place. From 1st June 2018, The Hub was launched with a new style and interior, upgrading the social living room of internationals in the city.
