Campus Map

The department is situated in building S8.

To reach the campus

If you travel by train (see, it's a 10 minutes walk from St-Pietersstation to the Campus Sterre. Follow the 'Prinses Clementinalaan' on the right when you leave the station. On the second traffic lights turn to the right under the railway bridge and follow the 'Krijgslaan'. At the traffic lights, turn left (following the tram tracks). Immediately to your right is the main entrance of the campus. Follow the road straight ahead past buildings S1, S2, ... until you reach S8.

You might consider to take the tram (4) at the platform just in front of the station which goes to the direction "Zwijnaarde", it will bring you in 5 minutes to the Galglaan (there is a stop before the crossing with the Krijgslaan, and one after the crossing with the Pintelaan).

If you travel by car (or motorbike) from the E-40 highway Oostende-Brussel, you leave the highway at 'Gent-St. Denijs' (see sign towards station). Take the direction Gent. At the end of the road (Kortrijkse steenweg) you end up at a roundabout.  Take the road (Krijgslaan) (more or less straight on) which goes parallel with the campus. There is a side-entrance after about 200 m. The main entrance (corner Galglaan-Krijgslaan; note tramtracks) is a little bit further on. Turn left and drive almost to the end of the campus. Behind the last building (building "S1", 3-floors) you turn right, take the road between the cottages until you are at building S24; at your left you will find S25 and at your right S23.
If you are coming from the E-17 highway Rijsel-Antwerpen (or Lille-Antwerp), you can leave the highway at 'Gent U.Z. exit 9'. Take direction hospital 'Universitair Ziekenhuis' until you meet traffic lights. Go left and follow 'De Pintelaan', pass the traffic lights until the next crossroad, which is the Galglaan. Turn right and enter the gate about halfway the road on your left side (cross the tram-tracks) and you will see at your left side first building S25 and next building S23.
