HAS University of Applied Sciences (Dutch: HAS Hogeschool) is an independent university of applied sciences, specialising in agriculture, horticulture, food, nature conservation and environment. It is located in 's-Hertogenbosch, the regional capital of North Brabant, and accredited by the Dutch Flemish Accreditation Organisation. In 2013 there were around 2400 students enrolled at HAS University of Applied Sciences.


On 13 October 1947 MLS (middelbare landbouwschool) was opened in Roermond, and followed a year later by the MZS (middelbare landbouwschool). In 1956 the higher horticulture school was opened in Nijmegen, which became part of HAS (hogere agrarische scholen gemeenschap) which formed the KNBTB (Koninklijke Nederlandse Boeren- en Tuindersbond) in Den Bosch in 1962. This was later renamed to HAS University of Applied Sciences.
