  • Continue the ring-road (Sint Lievenslaan, Citadellaan, Charles De Kerckhovelaan, Ijzerlaan, Godshuizenlaan, Martelaarslaan) until the 7th traffic light (just before a church).
  • Turn right just before the church into the "Ekkergemstraat" and continue until you reach the canal Coupure.
  • On your left hand side you will see the entrance of the faculty campus.
