Finding your way around campus

The Faculty of Science and Engineering is located in two main areas in Groningen. Most facilities are located at the Zernike campus, with several of the more medical programmes located downtown at the Antonius Deusinglaan (ADL) near to the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG).

Each building and room or lecture hall within it has a dedicated indicative number. The first four digits of a location indicate the building number; the first two digits after the period indicate the floor number and the last two digits indicate the room number. Some buildings contain multiple building numbers. Take LB 5173.0217 as an example. LB indicates the general building: Linnaeusborg, which consists of multiple building numbers; ‘5173’ indicates which specific part of the Linnaeusborg you need to be in. Room 0217 is on the second floor, in room 17.

Via the online schedule you will be able to find the locations for each lecture. If you click on the location and log in, you can find more information about the building your lecture/tutorial/practical is in.

In the first few weeks, your lectures will be in the Energy Academy, the Bernoulliborg, the Linneausborg, and the U-building. You can already check out the campus tour videos below for those buildings. Unfortunately, no campus tour video for the U-building is available.

On the introduction day, your mentor will also take you on a guided tour of the campus and show you the important classrooms. But during the first few weeks, we can recommend being there extra early to find your way to the right lecture or tutorial room, because some of them can be difficult to find.
