Directions CRCG

Our offices (room 140.016 & 140.017) are in the main building of the Faculty of Arts and Philosophy at Blandijnberg 2. Enter the building via the side entrance on the corner of Sint-Hubertusstraat and Sint-Amandstraat, and turn right. Turn left after about 20 metres to access the elevator or stairs. Take the elevator or stairs to the fourth floor. Exit the elevator or stairs, and turn into the corridor to the left. Room 140.017 is the first room on your right, room 140.016 is the first room on your left.

By Air

From Brussels National Airport, take the direct train to Ghent (railway station Gent-Sint-Pieters). There is at least one fast train going to Ghent every hour (which takes less than an hour), plus one slow train (which takes an hour and a half; at the weekend this is the only direct train). Alternatively, first take a train to Brussels (railway station Brussel-Zuid/Bruxelles-Midi); there take the fast train to Ghent (with final destination Oostende or Knokke / Blankenberge).

By Car

Coming from the motorway E40 / E17, take the exit Gent Centrum. Exit the flyover by following “Alle richtingen”. When the road drops to ground level, turn left at the first traffic lights (under the bridge). Next, turn right at the second traffic lights. If you then go straight ahead, you will come to Sint-Pietersplein, a large square with an underground car park. From there you can see the Book Tower, home to Ghent University Library, which is part of the Faculty complex.

By Train / Tram

Most international trains (including Eurostar and Thalys) arrive in Brussels (Brussel-Zuid/Bruxelles-Midi). There you can take the train to Gent-Sint-Pieters (the trains with final destination Oostende or Knokke / Blankenberge). There is a train from Brussels to Ghent every thirty minutes till around 12.30 a.m. The journey from Brussels to Ghent takes about half an hour.

There is also a direct train connection from Lille (France, station Lille Flandres) to Ghent. Be careful: get off in Gent-Sint-Pieters, not in Gent-Dampoort.

Outside the railway station Gent-Sint-Pieters there are numerous stops for buses and trams to the centre of Ghent. To get to Blandijnberg, take tram 1 in the direction of Korenmarkt. Get off at Sint-Kwintensberg, and follow the road upwards between coffee bar Illy and snack bar ‘t Hoeksken (the street is called Sint-Kwintensberg). The Faculty building is on the top of the hill, on your left-hand side.
