By car

The campus and main building themselves are not accesible by car and there is no parking space on the Cleveringaplaats. Please do not use the visiting address as a destination on your navigation system but park your car at the Maliebaan (6 minutes walking distance) or Haagweg car park. Both locations offer paid parking. The Haagweg car park is guarded and free shuttle buses operate between the car park and the city center all day.
