Public Transport

The Faculty of Humanities is a 10-minute walk from Leiden Central Station.
Alternatively you could take bus 1 from the train station and get off at 'Paterstraat', or bus 5 or 6 and get off at 'Noordeinde'. For public transport planning see ns.nl (for trains) and 9292.nl (for all public transport).


If you come by car, please do not use the visiting address for your car navigation: the Cleveringaplaats has no streetlevel parking. The most convenient car parks are located at the Haagweg (€ 2 p/h) and the Maliebaan (street level parking, €2 p/h).
From the Haagweg car park you can walk to the University buildings at the Witte Singel in about 6 minutes. If you need to go to the city centre, a free bus will take you there from the Haagweg parking.


If you are flying to Schiphol Amsterdam Airport (AMS), the easiest way to travel to Leiden is by train.
The airport includes an underground railway station, with frequent services to Leiden (as final destination, or en route to The Hague/Den Haag, Rotterdam, or Vlissingen). From the airport to Leiden by train takes 15-20 minutes. For more details see the above section on public transport.
