Arrival and Accomodation

Travel by train

The campus of the University of Twente is located between two cities, Hengelo and Enschede.

When travelling by train, you can either travel to Hengelo or to Enschede.
From both train stations, you can take a bus to the University of Twente.

There is also a train station located close to the University: Enschede Kennispark. It is a 20-minute walk from there to the campus. If you’d like to travel to Enschede Kennispark, you would have to change trains in Hengelo. (So, it is easier to take the bus in Hengelo.)

For your exact travel information, you can plan your journey using the following website.

From Schiphol airport to the University of Twente

From Schiphol airport there is a direct train towards Hengelo and Enschede central station running every hour. There is also an option with a transfer in Amersfoort. Both options will take roughly 2:10h. You can buy a ticket at Schiphol airport using the yellow ticket vending machines. You can also buy a ticket on the internet.

More information can be found here.
