Both locations of the Faculty of Law – Bouillonstraat 1-3 (BOU 1-3) and Kapoenstraat 2 (KAP 2), are relatively well accessible for people with a physical disability. On this webpage you can find information about parking spaces, public transport from and to the university, accessibility for wheelchair users, accessible toilets and how to act in case of an evacuation.
Be aware that the Maastricht city centre consists largely of historical buildings and cobbled streets, which can be unpleasant for wheelchair users.
There are three parking spaces for people with a physical disability in front of the building BOU 1-3. The parking facility behind the building also has a parking space for people with a physical disability. However, this parking lot is difficult to access for wheelchair users.
The journey planner 9292.nl (also available in English) provides up-to-date information about public transport links. The university has a number of bus and rail links. Several transport companies offer extra facilities to enable passengers with a disability to access public transport, stations and stops. Please visit the website of the transport company for more information on accessibility:
- NS (Dutch railway)
- Arriva (buses, information in Dutch only)
- De Lijn (Belgian buses that also stop in Maastricht).
The Faculty of Law has two buildings that are both used for offices as well as education purposes.
The main entrance (BOU 1-3) and side entrance (Lenculenstraat 26) of the first Law building are wheelchair accessible. You can access the parking lot (Lenculenstraat 14) through the green gate at the right of the building.
The elevator is located in the front of the building (follow the signs). The faculty is open on weekdays from 08.00 to 21.00.
The Faculty of Law also has a building on the Kapoenstraat 2. This building is also accessible through the parking lot at Lenculenstraat 14, or directly via the entrance at KAP 2. The main and side entrance are both wheelchair accessible. The building is open from 08.00 to 21.00. If you have an appointment with an employee, let them know that they should book an accessible meeting room.
