General Route description
From the bus stop Heidelberglaan (includes city buses 11, 12 and 12s with destination "Uithof WKZ" or "Uithof AZU"), enter the Willem C van Unnik Building, located at Heidelberglaan 2, which is the tallest building of the Uithof Campus. From the entrance of the Willem van Unnik Building, keep straight on, past the first reception, until you will find yourself in the Educatorium Building. At the corner of the Educatorium Building, an information desk will be installed.
Entrance is possible via the Willem C van Unnik Building or the Leuvenplein if you have parked your car in the parking garage next to the library. If you park your car on the parking lots along the Leuvenlaan, you can just use the revolving doors at the main entrance of the Educatorium. Alternatively, you can use the entrance of the Marinus Ruppert Building at the Leuvenlaan itself and enter the building (keep right inside the building for the information desk).
