Getting to Artesis Plantijn University College, campus Spoor Noord – Noorderplaats, Noorderplaats 2, 2000 Antwerp

In case you come by car, please let us know through the online registration form (see link here below) and we will make sure you can park your car for free in our underground parking lot. Calculate the smartest route on https://www.slimnaarantwerpen.be/en.

With regards to local public transport, Antwerp seems to be a huge construction site for the next few years. We will share with you the latest information on how to get to the campus and the hotel in the beginning of September, since we have been informed certain busses will be redirected, but the total impact is difficult to predict at this moment.

Accommodation

The hotel recommended is Holiday Inn Express Antwerp City - North:

  • AP’s campus Spoor Noord (our meeting place on Thursday and Friday) is just across the road
  • Almost all activities take place nearby this hotel
  • Transport by bus to KdG’s campus Zuid is organized on Saturday morning
  • A good price was negotiated: use this link in order to make use of it. We strongly advise you to book your room before June 30, 2017 (= deadline for the negotiated hotel price).

Of course you are free to choose another hotel for your stay in Antwerp. No need to inform us about this, since we kindly ask you to make your own travel arrangements.
