Mobility and accessibility

Every day, some 27,000 people spend time on campus: TU Delft staff, students, scientists, visitors and the staff at companies located there. This number will only rise in the future thanks to TU Delft growth. Keeping the campus accessible and ensuring traffic safety are important points of departure for the latter’s large-scale renewal.

Investments will be made over the coming years to expand the cycling and pedestrian network on campus. More green areas will be created as well as space for pedestrians and cyclists in areas of the campus that now experience heavy car traffic and fragmented parking space issues. The number of bicycle sheds and facilities will be expanded and attuned to the growing number of cyclists. Examples of this process include the restructuring of the Leeghwaterstraat and the construction of Coffee & Bikes

In future, car traffic on campus will be led along the campus ring road to the high-density parking areas on the edge of the campus. The concentrated parking facilities will be easy to find thanks to dynamic parking referral signs.

The future tram connection with Delft station and The Hague will improve campus accessibility. Mobility solutions are being sought that stimulate people to opt for public transport or cycling and make these modes of transport more appealing. Stimulating sustainable choices will reduce car traffic to the campus.

Furthermore, TU Delft is in talks with the Municipality of Delft, the provincial government and the Metropoolregio Rotterdam Den Haag [metropolitan Rotterdam – The Hague region] concerning concrete short and long-term investment in campus accessibility.

This will keep the campus hospitable to cyclists, pedestrians and drivers.
