      A message for everyone who is coming to the Master's Open Day by train tomorrow:

      Due to maintenance work on 17 November, there will be no intercity train connection between Sittard and Maastricht. If you travel from the north or west (via Utrecht, Eindhoven or Roermond), you have to change to the arriva train at Sittard (this involves checking out of the NS network and checking into the arriva network with your travel card).

      If you are arriving from the east, note that there will be no railway service between Valkenburg and Maastricht Randwyck. There will be busses to Maastricht instead – please allow for 20 minutes of additional travel time.

      To travel between Maastricht and Maastricht Randwyck, you can use the city buses. []
