Pick-up service

As an international student you can apply for help with your journey from Schiphol Airport to Enschede. This Pick-up Service is organized in cooperation with the Erasmus Student Network Twente (ESN Twente). Student mentors from ESN will welcome you on Schiphol Airport and guide you to the train.  

If you are going to live on campus, you can reserve a SmartCab from Hengelo station. If you are going to live in the center of Enschede, you can reserve a SmartCab from Enschede Central station. If you have a room in the ITC hotel or the Stadsweide, you need to pick up your key first and then go to your room. 

What are the costs?

Most costs are included and paid for by the University, however we do ask a small contribution. The exact costs will become known as soon as possible.

Can I also come to Enschede by myself?

If you arrive at another time and you can't make use of the pick-up service, you can take the train to Enschede by yourself. If you want to prepare for this journey, please check the sites below.
