Definitely! The Student Deans and Student Psychologists are present at the Registration Day, which is the first official day for your exchange at Tilburg University, so you can meet them right there at your first day. The information provided during the Program Introduction, for example, is all recorded and will be uploaded online with subtitles so that you don’t have to miss anything in case you cannot physically attend.
You can find more information about the Registration Day and the Program Introduction via Exchange | Tilburg University.
Tilburg University has its own train station with an elevator and there are multiple bus stops around campus. Trains from Tilburg, as well as from cities around Tilburg and connecting to Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam and Eindhoven Airport stop at Tilburg University station.
The bus and train providers are very happy to help you in case you need assistance getting on and off the train. In case you need this assistance, you can use Tilburg main station and take a bus from there to Tilburg University. In the busses and trains, stops are indicated on a screen and by a voice memo. You can use the Stationsinformatie | NS (in Dutch, unfortunately) to check the facilities at each individual train station. After you indicated the station you are looking for, you click on enter and then on ‘voorzieningen’. ‘Informatie toegankelijkheid’ shows you what is available on the station, such as a lift (elevator), geleidelijnen (structure in the floor tiles that can be used for guidance to and from the train and the entrance of the station) and reisassistentie NS (travel assistance – employees from NS will help you to get on the train).
You can read more about the busses here. The website Haltescan (Stopscan) allows you to check the facilities at the different bus stops. For our region (Noord-Brabant), you need to click on the number next to Breda (currently 6077). It then opens the region.
You can read more about getting to Tilburg by train on the website Tilburg University (Accessibility with a disability | Tilburg University) and on the website of the Dutch Railways: Traveling with a disability | Travel information | NS.
