Accommodation information

You are divided over three different locations.

1) Hoogte Kadijk
2) Stavangerweg
3) Gevleweg

Stavangerweg and Gevleweg are right next to each other. The Hoogte Kadijk is in another part of town. Below you can find information about all three properties.

Keys (all locations)
You will receive the keys on July 1st at the summer school opening lecture. Should you arrive earlier in the day and want to stow your luggage somewhere, the most convenient location is a locker at central station as you will return there to take public transport to your various accommodations.

For the people staying on the Stavangerweg: when you leave, please put the room keys in the letterbox of the caretaker’s office at Stavangerweg 361.

For the Gevleweg/Hoogte Kadijk: When you leave, you are requested to leave the keys on your room tables and close the door carefully behind you.

At the end of the alley you will find yourself on the Hoogte Kadijk. Number 173 should be just on your right.
