By bike

In Brussels, you’ll often get around quicker by bike than by public transport or car. It’s possible to park your bike in the underground car parks on the campus; bike racks are provided near the entrances to the staircase.

Practical information:

  • Rent a bike from Villo or Blue Bike
  • Breakdown? The Velofixer offers help

By public transport

At the request of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the MIVB/STIB has drawn up a reachability sheet for both campuses of the university. These sheets provide an overview of the different options for reaching the campuses using the Brussels public transport company:

Since Januari 2018, the Brussels Capital Region is a LEZ. LEZ stands for "Low Emission Zone". The term is used to designate where polluting vehicles are not allowed to drive in a given city, or areas of that city. It is one of the measures taken in numerous European cities to improve air quality and consequently public health.
When driving to the Brussels Region by car or van, you can check here whether or not your vehicle is affected. If your vehicle is, you can use the transits parkings in Brussels or alternatives for the car (see above). Between January and October, 1th, there is a transition periode. From October, 1th on, failure to comply will lead to a fine. If you have a vehicle registered abroad, do not forget to register it online before visiting Brussels (even if you comply!) This can be done online (from July, 1th onwards).
