Transportation

As a student at UHasselt you can profit from a bunch of discounts and support programs to go to the campus (in a sustainable manner). Below you will find an overview and more information about how you can utilize these benefits.

Bike

You can rent a bike at VEDO for only 25 euros per academic year, after payment of a deposit of 70 euros. When you return the bike, you will get this deposit back. This price includes a maintenance contract. This maintenance contract includes 1 bike check per year (excluding parts). When you get a bike repair done on a VEDO bike, you will receive a 10% discount. Working hours are not charged for a repair.

How to rent a bike at VEDO?

  1. Apply for a bike online at citybike.uhasselt.be
  2. Pick up your bike at VEDO.

Is your bike damaged or broken? At the VEDO bike shop you can get your rented or your own bike repaired at a discounted rate (more information on the prices can be found in the repair form). The repair of a VEDO-bike automatically gets you an extra 10% off.

You can find this bike rental and repair shop at the following location:

Train or combi-pass

As a UHasselt student, you can apply for a contribution of 50% on a train- or combipass of 3 or 12 months in 2nd class for the route from home to campus.

As a student younger than 26, you receive a 50% discount when buying a subscription for a train- or combi pass from the NMBS.

Now, how does this work?

  1. From the moment that you are registered as a student, you can go to your digital student file and navigate to > registration for. Here you can fill in your information for a train- or combi-railpass.
  2. Afterwards (this can take a couple of working days), you receive a certificate from the NMBS that you will need when buying the train- or combi pass at the NMBS station.
  3. Take your NMBS certificate and your student registration certificate to the NMBS counter at the station. You get the discount immediately, so you don’t have to do anything else after this.

Please note! If you are a student above 26 years old, you still have the right to receive a contribution of 50%, but the process of applying is different. Here applies the same process as for a bus pass subscription. You first buy the bus pass and afterwards, you can demand the contribution. You can find the application form for this contribution in your digital student file (student supplies > forms).

Bus Pass

As a UHasselt student, you receive a contribution of 50% for your bus pass of 3 or 12 months.

process:

  1. Buy your bus pass at De Lijn.
  2. Download the application form from your digital student file > student supplies > forms.
  3. Mail the application form and the subscription from De Lijn (with your name, price and period of the bus pass) to vervoer@uhasselt.be or present these documents to someone at the student desk in Diepenbeek or Hasselt.

Campuspas

Do you only use the bus in Hasselt and Diepenbeek? Then the best option for you is to buy the campuspas. For only 20 euros per year, you can use the bus in Hasselt and Diepenbeek unlimited. Check beforehand if your bus stop lies within the radius (pdf, 63 KB) of the campuspas. The campuspas is valid from September 15 until September 14 the next year.

How to apply for a campuspas:

  1. Make sure you have a MOBIB-card. You can buy an empty MOBIB-card at De Lijn for 5 euros.
  2. Register yourself via your digital student file for the campus pass (student file > registration for).
  3. Pay 20 euros by bank transfer.
  4. We transfer your information for the campus pass to De Lijn when we have received your payment. De Lijn will then activate the campus pass on your MOBIB-card.

Please note: Make sure you apply and pay timely for your campus pass, since it can take a couple of days before we receive your payment and it can take up to 14 days before your campus pass is activated on your MOBIB-card.

Did you already pay your campuspas but it is not yet activated while you really need it? Get a substitute pass that is valid for 14 days, you can pick it up at the student desk on presentation of your proof of payment.

Mobicon

You can’t get to the campus in Hasselt by foot, by bike or with public transport, you want to be completely sure you will have a parking spot and strive for a sustainable form of transport?

Mobicon makes sure you can park your car without having to worry. You can park at the city border and take a more sustainable alternative to make it the rest of the way to campus.
