How to get there?


At the request of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the MIVB/STIB has drawn up a reachability sheet for both campuses of the university. These sheets provide an overview of the different options for reaching the campuses using the Brussels’ public transport company:

The main campus of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel is enclosed between several major roads. For detailed or alternative routes, please consult Google Maps or

Parking is available on the VUB campus. Enter through entrance 13 (Pleinlaan). When the gates are not open, you can use the intercom. Security will open the gates if you mentioned the European Population Conference.


In Brussels, you’ll often get around quicker by bike than by public transport or car. Once at the campus, you can safely leave your bike in the underground bike parking zone of building B/C.
