Our department is located in the F-wing of the Medical Faculty. The main entrance can be found at the Uilenplein, on the VU side of the faculty building, at the address below:

The precise location of the main entrance is marked on the map (right). Note that this is not the main entrance to the Medical Faculty.

You can reach our department easily by public transport as well as by car -- directions can be found here. Please be aware that parking in the neighbourhood is very limited.

 

Walking route from Amsterdam Zuid Station (train and metro)

If you arrive by metro: walk in the direction of the Gustav Mahlerplein (so not the World Trade Center), and continue until you reach the Gustav Mahlerlaan. Here turn right and continue until you reach the Buitenvelderstselaan, an avenue where the tram/metro also passes. Turn left and continue walking until you reach the busy junction with De Boelelaan. From here you can already see the main building of the VU, situated on the block diagonally from you. Cross at the traffic lights twice to reach the VU block. Here continue walking along De Boelelaan past the main building (which is accessible by steps as well as ramps). Enter the alleyway to your left that contours the building. You will reach a square with beach volleyball courts to your right and coffee/snacks shops to your left. As you reach the main square, where the car park is, you will see on a diagonal to your right the gated entrance to the Uilenplein. Go through the gate to reach our department's entrance.

 

If you arrive by train: walk in the direction indicated by signs VU/VUmc. You exit the station at the Buitenvelderstselaan, an avenue where the tram/metro also passes. Still following signs to the VU/VUmc, cross the tram/metro tracks and continue walking to your left until you reach the busy junction with De Boelelaan. From here you can already see the main building of the VU, situated on the block in front of you. Cross the traffic lights ahead to reach the VU block and turn right on De Boelelaan, walking past the main building (which is accessible by steps as well as ramps). Enter the alleyway to your left that contours the building. You will reach a square with beach volleyball courts to your right and coffee/snacks shops to your left. As you reach the main square, where the car park is, you will see on a diagonal to your right the gated entrance to the Uilenplein. Go through the gate to reach our department's entrance.
