HOW TO GET TO ‘VU Campus’, Amsterdam:
From the direction of Utrecht/Amersfoort: take the ‘Ringweg A10’ – direction Den Haag. Exit Amstelveen (S 108), at the traffic light go to the left – direction Amstelveen-VU Hospital. **At the traffic light at the VU Hospital go to the left, now you are on De Boelelaan, drive on to the University building, you have to park your car on the parking lot and pay!
From the direction of Den Haag: Exit Amsterdam/Amstelveen (S108), at traffic light go to the left, direction Amstelveen-VU Hospital. See above **.
By public transport
You can buy tickets for the train at the ticket vending machines in the railway stations. You need to pay cash (only coins) or by cash card. If you buy a ticket at a service desk, you pay service costs of EUR 0,50. For the trams, metros and busses we advice you have to buy a multi-journey ticket (strippenkaart) as this is cheaper than buying tickets in the ticket machines or from the driver. You can buy the multi-journey tickets at the coffee shops (‘Kiosk’) in the railway stations and at Schiphol.
From the railway stations
You can reach the VU Campus via two (international) railway stations. From railway station Amsterdam Zuid (Amsterdam South) you can take Metro 51 – direction Amstelveen or tram 5- direction Amstelveen. You get off at the next stop (VU). You need a one zone ticket (2 strips). It is also just a ten minutes walk from this station to the VU Campus. From railway station Amsterdam Centraal ( the Central Station) you can take Metro 51 – direction Amstelveen – and get off at the VU-campus (CS-VU = 30 min).
From the city center/recommended hotels
Tram 5 goes from the railway station Amsterdam Centraal to the VU through the centre of town = 45 min. This tram is convenient for visitors staying in hotel Bilderberg Jan Luycken. Metro 51 is most convenient for visitors staying in the Best Western and Ibis Stopera hotels. For both transports you need a two zones ticket (3 strips).
From the airport
If you come by train from Schiphol Airport, you get off at Amsterdam Zuid railway station. You can take the tram 51 or 5 (direction Amstelveen) for one stop – they both stop at this station – or you can walk to the Campus (10 min). You need a one zone ticket, two strips. The railway ticket from the airport to Amsterdam Zuid is just EUR 2,60. We also advice you to travel to the recommended hotels via this railway station as this is the most convenient option.
