How to reach us?

Our Department is located on the Campus UZ, at Ghent Universal Hospital, building block K3, 6th floor - entrance 42.
Ghent University Hospital is situated near the city centre of Ghent and lies at the junction of the European motorways E17 and E40 which makes it within easy reach for cars and public transport.

By car

  • From the city centre: you can reach Ghent University Hospital via the inner ring and the De Pintelaan and Zwijnaardsesteenweg slip roads.
  • Via the R4: from both the East and the West you can access the campus via the R4.
  • Via the E40 and E17 motorways: the E40 motorway (Ostend - Brussels) connects with the E17 (Antwerp - Kortrijk) at the Zwijnaarde junction. There is a special exit on the E17, exit no 9, marked "Universitair Ziekenhuis" or "UZG".

By public transport

  • Sint-Pieters railway station is about 20 to 25 minutes walk from the hospital.
  • The city tram and bus company (De Lijn) runs two bus lines (nos 49 and 65) and one tram line (number 4) between Sint-Pieters railway station and the hospital.
  • From the outer suburbs and the city centre, bus line 5 (Heuvelpoort, Tolpoort, Van Beverenplein, Zwijnaarde Hekers) provides a direct connection with the hospital.
