How to reach us

General information

NBIC is located at the Radboud University campus in Nijmegen.

The city of Nijmegen is easily accessible from all parts of the country. Thanks to a well-developed and efficient public transport system, major European cities such as Brussels and Paris are only a few hours away by train. Throughout the Netherlands, whether you travel by tram, metro (unfortunately, Nijmegen has neither), or bus, you can use the same tickets (strippenkaarten) for all bus, tram and metro journeys.

Work on the roads to Radboud University

Nijmegen is working on the roads surrounding the campus of Radboud University, the so called 'Rondje Heyendaal' (the Heijdendaal circle'). This may cause delays on your way to the University. More information can be found here (only in Dutch).


How to reach NBIC by train

It is easiest to reach NBIC from Nijmegen Heyendaal station. For travel information you can check the electronic timetable of the Dutch Railways via the Internet:

When travelling by train, keep three things in mind:

  • Always check at the railway station (or if possible at home) to confirm that the travel information mentioned above is still correct. To find out about train times, routes and tickets in the Netherlands, please look on
  • In the Netherlands, trains do not run all night. If you arrive on a very late international train, it is possible that you will not make it to Nijmegen that day. The latest possible arrival time ranges between 0.30 A.M. and 1.30 A.M.
  • Do not buy a ticket every time you change trains. In most cases you will be able to buy a ticket to Nijmegen in your hometown. If this is not the case, buy a through-ticket to Nijmegen at the first station you arrive at in the Netherlands, regardless of how many times you may have to change trains. This will save you much time (and money).
