Brussels, Saint-Louis and getting around
Brussels is very easy to get to. And as in most large cities, as you might expect, it is easy to get around on public transport, by bicycle or on foot. Brussels is a city that you can live in, explore and enjoy without a car!
The university is ideally located in the centre of the city with several railway stations within easy reach. It is also located halfway between two of the city’s main public transport stations, Botanique, and Rogier, which offer convenient metro, tram and bus access to and across the entire city.
As a rough guide, the Gare Centrale railway station is located less than 20 minutes away on foot, the Gare du Nord can be reached in 10 minutes on foot and the Gare du Congrès is a just a short distance away on the same metro line as the Gare du Midi (the Gare du Midi is about 10 minutes away on tram).
