By car:

The campus is situated in the middle of main road junctions, giving easy access to a range of highways:

  • E 40 from Oostende/Bruges/Gent to Brussels

  • A 12 and E 19 from Antwerp

  • E 40 from Aachen/Liège

  • E 411 from Luxembourg

A free parking facility is available at entrance 13 in the parking garage next to Aula Q.

By train:

The campus is located right next to the Etterbeek train station which offers direct connections to the three main stations of Brussels: Gare Midi, Gare Centrale, Gare du Nord. A wide range of intercity connections is leaving from Gare Centrale (Antwerp, Gent, Louvain-la-Neuve, Cologne…etc.)

By plane:

From the National Airport in Zaventem, 20 km outside Brussels, fast trains provide a direct connection to Brussels Central station three times an hour. From there, you can switch either to a train to station Etterbeek or take a taxi (costs between 6 and 10 Euro).

Shuttle: Bus 12 (Airport Express Line) goes straight from Brussels Airport to Brussels city centre.
