Accessibility by car & public transport

The campus of the University of Twente is located between Enschede and Hengelo and is easily accessible by public transport (train, bus) and car. (Please note: The ITC Faculty is not located on the campus, but close to the city centre of Enschede.)

The central address of the UT is Drienerlolaan 5, Enschede, the Netherlands. For addresses of specific buildings, go to the address list.


Coming from motorway A1, take motorway A35 in the direction of Enschede. Take exit no 26 Enschede-West/Universiteit. Follow the signs 'Universiteit Twente'. If you are using a GPS system, enter Drienerlolaan 5 in Enschede as your destination address. From the UT main entrance (near the large LED screen), signs will lead you to parking areas. The numbers of buildings  are also marked with signs. The map shows which parking area is closest to the building of your destination. Some of the parking areas have charging stations for electric cars. The central delivery point for suppliers is located in the building Garage (no 5).

Please note: on match days of FC Twente the campus has limited accessibility for cars. More information can be found below.
