How to get to the venue
Getting to the University of Antwerp from the airport is relatively easy and straightforward. The public transportation system in Antwerp is well-developed and efficient, so you should have no trouble finding your way to the campus.
If you’re coming from the city center, you can take tram lines 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 15, all of which stop at the Antwerp University Hospital (UZA) and the nearby campus buildings. Alternatively, you can take bus lines 17, 22, 33, 410 or 412, which also stop at the UZA.
If you’re coming from other parts of the city, you can use the De Lijn website or mobile app to find the most convenient tram or bus connection. The university is also easily accessible by bike, with plenty of bike racks available on campus.
The university has several car parks that are open to visitors, including the parking lot at the University Square and the parking garage at Campus Drie Eiken. However, it’s important to note that parking can be limited during peak hours, and some car parks may be reserved for staff and students only.
If you’re driving a non-electric car, you should be aware of the low emission zone (LEZ) that has been in effect in Antwerp since 2017. The LEZ covers most of the city and is intended to reduce pollution by limiting access to older, more polluting vehicles. To drive in the LEZ, your vehicle must meet certain emission standards, or you’ll need to purchase a day pass. Be sure to check the LEZ rules before heading to the university to ensure compliance.
