Transport in Eindhoven to Fontys campus

The distance from the Student Hotel to the campus of the Fontys Summer School is a 15 minute walk. From the hostel it’s double. You can walk via the beautiful park of the Technical University Eindhoven. Or you can (rent a) bike. A bike is inclusive if you stay at the Student Hotel. Renting a bike costs on average 8 euro per day. You can also travel by bus. If you plan to use the train or bus reguraly while staying in the Netherlands, we recommend buying an ‘anonymous OV-chipkaart’ (which can also be used on trams and metros). You can buy the OV-chipkaart at NS ticketing machines or the service desk. There is an one-time fee of EUR 7.50. Your OV-chipkaart is activated as soon as you have topped up its balance and used it to travel with NS. This can be done at an NS ticketing machine. If you want to travel by train, you need at least 20 euros worth of balance on your OV-chipkaart! You use the card to check in and check out. For more information, please check this website.
