  • At the bifurcation, just before the overpass, take the exit ALLE RICHTINGEN (and NOT Gent Centrum).
  • Under the overpass, take the extreme left lane and make a left turn at the first trafic light, direction EEKLO / ZELZATE. You are now on the city ring-road.
  • Continue the ring-road direction Eeklo / Zelzate (St. Lievenslaan, Citadellaan, Ch. De Kerckhovelaan, Ijzerlaan, Godshuizenlaan, Martelaarslaan) until the 7th traffic light (just before a church). Turn right just before the church into the Ekkergemstraat
  • Continue until you reach the canal Coupure Links. On your left hand side you will see the entrance of the campus of the Faculty
  • Parking is possible along the Coupure (parking meters!) or on the campus itself. When you want to enter the faculty by car, you'll have to pass a barrier. Press the button on the left side of the barrier and identify yourself as a visitor of the laboratory. The barrier will be openend and you'll be able to park your car on the campus. There is a large parking behind the B-block (see below).

Directions, by train and tramway

From Brussels airport to Ghent:

  • Take a train to Brussels Central Station.
  • Take a train to Ghent from there: All trains with destination Oostende, Knokke-Blankenberge and Ghent are OK (take an IC --Inter City-- train, other types of trains make too frequent stops). The train ride to Ghent takes about 40 min.
