How to reach the faculty (campus Coupure)

Train and tram (recommended)

People by train at Brussels airport "Brussel-Nat-Luchthaven" arrive in Gent at the station "Gent-Sint-Pieters". For the timetables of the Belgian railway click here.

For the timetables and route for the tram see:

  • Take at the railway station Gent-Sint-Pieters the tram line 2 and get off at the stop "Gent Rozemarijnbrug".  Then it's about a 5 min walk alongside the canal "Coupure" (street name "Coupure links") to the faculty campus at Coupure links 653.  There is a tram about every 6 minutes from "Gent-Sint-Pieters" to "Gent Rozemarijnbrug"


Parking places for cars on the campus Coupure are restricted and are reserved for faculty staff! PARKING OF YOUR CAR ON THE CAMPUS IS NOT ALLOWED!

You have to park your car outside of the faculty campus (see Parking in Ghent | Stad Gent). The closest parking garages are "Parking Sint-Michiels" en "Parking Ramen", from which it is about 15 min walking to the faculty campus. The parkings (and the number of available places) are signalized alongside the routes when entering Ghent.

Please note that since 2020 Ghent is a Low Emission Zone. THE FACULTY CAMPUS IS LOCATED WITHIN THIS LOW EMISSION ZONE. Only vehicles that meet the conditions for admission will be allowed into this zone. Avoid being fined and always check your vehicle before coming to Ghent. More info on
