Leiden University, for example, has various faculties there, but Leiden University of Applied Sciences and MBO Rijnland are also present. In addition, the LUMC University Hospital is located here and so are various biotech companies such as Galapagos and Johnson & Johnson.
The multi-tenant building Plus Ultra will be realized at the Kop van Leeuwenhoek. This is in the entrance area of the park. The area will be the new center of the park. There will be a central square, catering facilities and place for living and leisure. The accommodation will focus on users of the park such as expats, PhD candidates, professors and conference visitors. Furthermore, the entrance area will be provided with a spacious parking garage for visitors to the park. Plus Ultra employees can also rent additional parking spaces here.
The Leiden Bio Science Park, and therefore Plus Ultra, is easily accessible by both car and public transport. Leiden Central Station is located next to the park and there are various bus stops throughout the park. Furthermore, the park is located next to the A44 highway from Nieuw-Vennep to The Hague.
