The 15 Years of Honours Conference will be held at Saxion Enschede (6th of June) and at the University of Twente (7th of June), both in Enschede, The Netherlands.

Thursday 6th of June 2024 - Saxion Enschede
The Saxion Enschede campus is located at M. H. Tromplaan 28, 7513 AB Enschede. The programme will start at the Connect U Building, located at the Ariensplein.

Friday 7th of June 2024 - University of Twente
The address of the University of Twente is Drienerlolaan 5, Enschede. The entire conference day will take place at the creative space of the University of Twente DesignLab (you can find the location of the DesignLab on Google Maps here). You can also find a map of the University campus here. The DesignLab is an eco-system facilitating creative collaboration and knowledge transfer between researchers, societal organisations, students, and citizens. The DesignLab values plural perspectives and expertise from individuals as well as organisations – nurturing collaborative projects that transcend disciplinary and professional domains. The DesignLab spaces are designed to trigger innovative thinking, stimulate collaboration, have fun, embrace multiple perspectives and make futures tangible. The multi-purpose rooms are utilised for education, research, (business) projects, and the ever-so-necessary brain relaxation. You can find more information regarding the DesignLab here

Travelling to Enschede by public transport/car

Thursday 6th of June 2024 - Saxion Enschede
To reach the Saxion Enschede campus by public transport, take the train directly to Enschede train station. The distance from Enschede train station to the Saxion campus is about 5-8 minutes walking. When coming by car, you can follow the designated route. Please note that there are limited parking spaces available around the Saxion campus.

Friday 7th of June 2024 - University of Twente
To reach the University of Twente, either take the train to Hengelo train station and take bus line 9 to Enschede (passing two stops on the University of Twente campus: UT/Kennispark and UT/Westerbegraafplaats); or, taking slightly longer, continue on to Enschede train station and take bus line 9 in the opposite direction to Hengelo (again exiting for UT/Kennispark or UT/Westerbegraafplaats). From Enschede train station, you can also take bus line 1, travelling through the campus (passing various stops located on the campus, always indicated as “UT/…”). This bus line takes longer than bus line 9 and will only bring you slightly closer to the central O&O square on the University of Twente campus. You can also travel to the University campus by car, following the route here. At the University campus, there are various (free) parking spots available (see here). You can find the parking spaces indicated on the campus map (below).
