  • by car


    Coming from either North or South of Brussels, take the east side of the Ring around Brussels and leave the Ring at exit no 2 "Kraainem/Wezembeek Oppem".
    From there, follow the road signs to the hospital "H-UCL St-Luc" for about 2 km. You pass the "Carrefour" supermarket and the "Quick" hamburger restaurant and, before you get at the "Pizza Hut" restaurant, you find the campus at your right hand side. Once on the University Campus, follow the road signs "Parking Faculté".
    The ICP/LICR buildings are located at the very east side of the Campus opposite the sports facilities.
    Park your car in the parking lot indicated with the sign "Fournisseurs ICP".
    To open the barrier at the entrance of this parking, contact the guard via the parlophone and state
    your name and announce that you are a visitor. The LICR buiding is now directly in front of you.

  • by plane


    [ Brussels Airport ]

    Once at the Brussels airport it is best to take a taxi from the airport to the Institute. The Institute is located at the North-East rim of Brussels at approximately 5 km from the airport and it should not take longer than about 10 min by taxi (and would cost some 20 Euros) to reach the University Campus in Woluwe St Lambert.
    Tell the cab driver that the Institute is the building next to the University hospital "UCL-st LUC" on the Avenue Hippocrate, at the level of the roudabout, and let him stop at the busstop.
    Our Institute offices are located within buildings 74 and 75 on the Avenue Hippocrate (those twin buidings are called the ICP/LICR buildings).
