Practical information

We're very much looking forward to welcome participants who are travelling from elsewhere. For short activities, participants are responsible for booking their own accommodation. The website of the Maastricht Tourist Office (VVV-kantoor) may provide you with help as it offers an overview of hotels and bed & breakfasts that are situated in the city centre of Maastricht. The Apart Hotel Randwyck and NH Maastricht are located very close to the SHE venue, at 5 minutes walking distance. Our campus is easily reachable by train, so you might consider other options in nearby cities such as: Eijsden, Valkenburg, Meersen, Sittard. (all approx. 15-20 minutes by train).
