Mobility and accessibility

A sustainable, accessible campus
Some 27,000 people use the campus every day – students, scientists, visitors and staff of the university and the businesses on campus – and that number is set to increase during the coming years This means that it is becoming more and more busy on and around the university site. There is also a greater demand for parking spaces and CO2 emissions are increasing. This puts a lot of pressure on the accessibility and liveability of our campus.

We want to create a campus that is both easy and safe to reach – now and in the future: a green, park-like environment that can be explored on foot and is carbon-neutral. A place where we use the limited space intelligently and where we stimulate the use of sustainable transport.

To achieve this, we have joined forces with various bodies to put together a set of measures. Priority will be given to those travelling by public transport, by bike or on foot, but the campus will continue to be accessible by car.

By bike and on foot
Attention will be paid to the network of cycle paths and pedestrian routes on campus and leading to and from the university. To improve road safety and traffic flow, bicycle and car traffic will be separated as much as possible. We will tackle safety bottlenecks by installing traffic lights, for example.
We will also create more greenery and space on our campus in areas where there are currently a lot of cars and smaller car parks.

By public transport
We are also improving accessibility to the campus by public transport. Delft Zuid station will be renamed Delft TU Campus station and will be served by more trains in both directions. A tunnel will also be built under the tracks. A new cycle bridge, the Gelatine Bridge, will also be built over the Schie, which will provide a direct connection between the campus and this station. Tram 19 from The Hague Leidschendam-Voorburg will be extended from Delft Central Station to the south of the campus.

Travelling by car
Car drivers will soon be able to find their way quickly and safely from the campus ring road to the car parks (located at the edge of the campus) using dynamic parking signage. They will no longer have to search for a parking space. All campus destinations will be accessible on foot from the car parks.

In short, we are pulling out all the stops to create a park-like and healthy campus, which is easily accessible for everyone and a place where people enjoy spending their time.
