Walking directions

from Leiden Central Station

Exit the station at the LUMC-side (not the Leiden City Centre side!) and walk straight ahead, passing both the hospital and the glass parking garage. Turn left at the roundabout into Sandifortdreef. Turn right at the next roundabout. Getting to the campus on foot should take you about 10 minutes.


By bus

Bus 221 or bus 43  from Leiden Central Station will take you straight to the University of Applied Sciences Leiden. Get off at the Zernikedreef stop.


By car

The easiest way to get to the University of Applied Sciences Leiden by car is by way of the A44 motorway. Take exit no. 8 “Leiden” at the Transferium (Park & Ride). Take the N206 to “Leiden Centrum” (Leiden city centre). After approximately 1 kilometre, turn left at the Naturalis Biodiversity Center into Darwinweg. When you get to the roundabout, the University of Applied Sciences Leiden is at your left.



Please note that the available parking space is limited. We suggest visitors use public transport as much as possible. When there is a large-scale event (such as an open day), please use the parking facilities available at the LUMC, Naturalis Biodiversity Center and the Leiden Kenniscentrum.


When visiting the University of Applied Sciences Leiden for a graduation ceremony, a conference etc., your contact at the Hogeschool Leiden may book one or more parking spots for you through the reception desk.


The car park entrance is just off Zernikedreef. Drive past the car park barrier, then turn left onto P1. Continue past another barrier onto P2. The exit is located in the far left corner. The exit barrier will open automatically. The parking exit joins Wassenaarseweg at the roundabout.
