Campus information

At first, all of the university buildings were situated in the historic city centre of Delft. This changed with relocations to a separate university neighborhood in the second half of the 20th century. The last university building in the historic centre of Delft was the university library, which was relocated to a new building in 1997. The design of the new university neighborhood, Mekelpark, was officially approved on the September 12, 2006, giving a green light to the transformation of the area around the Mekelweg Street into a new campus center. The new park substituted the main access road and redirect car traffic around the campus, making the newly created park a safer place for bicycles and pedestrians.

Delft University located in Delft, Netherlands. It takes about 30 minutes journey from Amsterdam Airport (Schiphol) or at Rotterdam Airport to Delft University of Technology by trains or rental cars. The university is situated 1.8km away from Oude Kerk, 1.6km from Arboretum Heempark.
