See map of the campus here (pdf, 1.504 kB)

Caution: ask the driver to take the direction of the "Avenue Hippocrate N°54" at "1200 Woluwé-Saint-Lambert" (which every cab driver knows). CTMA is on the first floor of the Claude Bernard tower.

!!! Do NOT ask to be driven to the "Catholic University of Louvain", because this may result in being driven either (i) to our sister Flemish-speaking university "Katholieke Universiteit Leuven" which is located in Louvain (Leuven in Flemish) at about 10 miles East of Brussels; or (ii) to Louvain-la-Neuve, which is where the Registered Offices of the University are located (together with the other Faculties) but which is 20 miles South of Brussels; or (iii) to the Free University of Brussels, which is another university.

By public transportation (1 hour):

At the airport, reach for the "Airport Express Train" at lower level, and ride to "Bruxelles - Gare Centrale" (Brussels Central Station). From there, take the subway as indicated above.
