HOW TO GET TO UNIVERSITY OF ANTWERP-CAMPUS DRIE EIKEN/ UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL OF ANTWERP

DE LIJN PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

Public transport in Flanders (except for the train) is organised by 'De Lijn

We suggest you take one of these busses : 

• Bus 17 from the Central Station (every 15 minutes)

  • Direction 'UZA' 

  • Get off at the terminal stop UZA or at UA campus depending on the location of the congress that day

  • Duration: approximately 35 minutes (can be longer in rush hour)

• Bus 22 from the Groenplaats (± every 15 minutes) 

  • Direction 'UZA-Valaar' 

  • Get off at the terminal stop UZA or at Wilsonweg depending on the location of the congress that day

  • Duration: approximately 45 minutes (can be longer in rush hour)

• Bus 21 from the railway station of Antwerpen-Berchem (every 20 minutes) and Antwerpen-Central station

  • Direction 'Neerland' 

  • Get off at 'Wilrijk Bist', take bus 17 from there 

  • Duration: approximately 45 minutes (can be longer in rush hour)

VELO BIKES

Another option is to travel by bike. The velo is the bike sharing system in Antwerp. Be aware that the closest drop off point is on the Dokter Donnyplein. You will still have to walk 20 minutes to get to the university buildings.

POPPY

Only recently the poppy car sharing system is available in Wilrijk (campus Drie Eiken). More information about this in the following link.

 

TRANSPORT IN THE CITY OF ANTWERP

Most of the things in the city centre are within walking distance, but of course there are a lot of different lines in the city. To get from the Central Station to the city centre (Groenplaats) you can walk on the 'Meir' (shopping boulevard) or take the tram (line 2, 3, 15 or 6).
