The city of Utrecht is located centrally and is accessible from all parts of the Netherlands. The UCiB operates from the ‘Stadskantoor’ (city offices), the central point that residents and entrepreneurs approach for almost all municipal services and products.
The Stadskantoor is immediately adjacent to Utrecht Central Station, on the side of the Jaarbeurs exhibition and convention center. From the station, follow the signs to Jaarbeurs. Once you leave the station you are on the Stadsplateau in front of the Stadskantoor entrance.
Cyclists can park their bikes using their public transport (‘OV’) chipcards in the guarded bicycle storage area, fietsenstalling Jaarbeursplein. The first 24 hours are free. If you don’t have an OV card you will be given a temporary pass by the U-stal staff. The entrance to the Stadskantoor is on the Stadsplateau, above the bicycle parking, and is accessed using the stairs, escalator or lift.
Parking a car is difficult in the immediate vicinity. The nearest (paid) parking areas are Jaarbeurs P1 to P5 and Kop van Lombok parking garage. You can also park your car at a P+R terminal and then reach the Stadskantoor by tram or bus. Collecting someone from the Stadskantoor or dropping them off can be done using the Kiss and Ride terminal (K+R) on the Jaarbeursplein.

There are several parking options for disabled visitors visiting the Stadskantoor. Ideally you may park on Stationsplein or in the parking bays for disabled visitors at the Jaarbeurs.
