The Uithof, BBL
All the lectures and practical sessions will take place in the BBL building which is located at the
Uithof (pronounced a bit like OUT-hof). There are two main bus lines that connect Utrecht city
center to the University campus at the Uithof (pronounced something like OUT-hof): 11 and 12.
Both depart from Utrecht Central Station, but then follow different routes to the campus. You
can use 9292ov
as an online travel planner.
If you are coming with bus number 11, you should leave at bus stop "Botanische Tuinen" (Botanical Gardens). If you are coming with bus number 12, you should leave at bus stop "Padualaan". From either bus stop you will easily spot the Minnaert building. If you walk towards it, you will notice there are small circular metal plates on the floor forming a path into the building. You can simply follow this path: it will take you into the building and across the internal bridge to the BBL, leaving you at the stairs where you can walk up/down. Alternatively you can walk along the corridor and you will find the elevators.
In case you left after the correct bus stop, you will probably still be inside the University campus, since both the 11 and the 12 bus lines end at the University Hospital. You’ll just have to walk a bit back and find your way to the BBL.
There's also a pdf map
of the campus. It may be a good idea to print it and take it with you.
Once you are in BBL, head for the ground floor (called "begane grond" (BG) in Dutch); rooms start with number 0).
Most lectures will take place in BBL-023, some in
BBL-075. The computer labs will be on the first floor in BBL-103 and BBL-106. There's also a
of the floors of BBL.
