The Netherlands has fantastic infrastructure and public transport between cities. If you can’t find a place to stay in Nijmegen, Nijmegen Central Station is only a 10-minute bus ride to Radboud University. Buses leave regularly and there are multiple stops on the campus.

We highly recommend Arnhem, only a 12 minute train ride from Arnhem Central Station to Nijmegen Central Station and connecting trains arrive directly outside the University.
