How to Reach the SBRC Building

By train

Our campus is located next to the railway station Etterbeek. Consult the timetables of the Belgian National Railroad Company (NMBS).

By subway/tram/bus

Subways, trams and buses in Brussels are run by the MIVB. Subway stations Petillon and Delta are closest to the Campus (+/- 15 minutes walk). There are several trams and buses from the different train stations in Brussels. Please consult the timetables of the MIVB.

The Vrije Universiteit Brussel has asked the MIVB to make a 'How to get to' brochure for both Campus Etterbeek and Campus Jette. This brochure gives an overview of the different means of public transport in Brussel you can use to reach the campuses.

By plane

Brussels Airport (Zaventem) is the largest airport in Belgium. Most international flights arrive here. From Brussels Airport you can reach our campus by train or by bus (bus 12, Brussels City). The main alternative airport is Brussels South - Charleroi Airport.

A system of electrical bollards is in use at Campus Etterbeek to limit parking and traffic nuisance. The system works on the basis of number plate recognition. This means that cars with a registered number plate are able to get on and off the campus without any problem. People whose number plate is not immediately recognised can register via the intercom.
