How to reach us ?

Our laboratory is located on the Sart-Tilman campus of the University of Liège in the Organic Chemistry Institute (Building B6a). Liège is a thousand-year-old city with an historical center and numerous monuments, churches, and museums. It is located one hundred kilometers South East of Brussels. The Sart-Tilman campus (780 hectares) is located 7 kilometers South of the city center in a leafy setting.

How to reach liège (city center)

By air: Major airlines operate flights to Brussels Airport. Shuttle trains (Airport City Express) run every 20 minutes between the airport and several stations in Brussels. It is better to get off this train at the North Station in Brussels. This takes approximately 15 minutes. We advise you not to take a taxi from the airport to the North Station of Brussels because this is very expensive (± 25 EUR). If you want to take a taxi anyway, do not accept proposals made inside the airport hall, but use those parked in the official rank at the exit from the building. From Brussels North Station direct trains to Liège (Guillemins station) depart every 30 to 60 minutes, at least between 6:00 and 24:00. The journey lasts approximately 1 hour. Check the Belgian Railways web site for additional information and schedules. If you prefer to rent a car, several car rental companies have an office in the airport building at the exit of the luggage reclaim hall.
Low-cost airlines arrive at Brussels South Charleroi Airport. A public bus (Line A) links the airport to the Charleroi Sud train station. From there, direct trains to Liège (Guillemins station) depart every hour, at least between 6:00 and 23:00. The journey takes about 1 hour 15 minutes. Check the Belgian Railways web site for additional information and schedules.

By train: Numerous international trains are routed via Liège Guillemins station, including high speed Thalys and ICE trains. Check the Belgian Railways web site for additional information and schedules.

By road: Liège is directly linked to the European motorway network through several motorways: from Brussels (E40), from Paris (E42), from Antwerp (E313), from Aachen (E40), or from Maastricht (E25).

How to reach the sart-tilman campus directly by road

highway access When approaching Liège, the best way to reach the University Campus is to follow the signs Université de Liège - SART-TILMAN. There are other small campuses in other places and administrative buildings in the town itself. So remember that the Chemistry Institute is located on the Sart-Tilman campus.

If you are arriving from Brussels (E40), Paris (E42), or Antwerp (E313), follow the signs for Seraing when you are approaching Liège. This will lead you to the motorway A604 where you should exit at Seraing (exit 4). Then follow the N617 road on the left bank of the river Meuse (direction: Liège) until you see the sign Université de Liège - SART-TILMAN. This new road (N63) crosses the river and then slopes upwards. It also leads to Marche and Dinant. New signs will tell you when you have to leave this road to take the N680. Soon after taking the N680, you will reach the campus entrance. Now refer to a detailed map of the campus or follow the signs P46, P48, or P49 (parking lots closest to the Chemistry Institute).

If you are arriving from Aachen (E40) or Maastricht (E25), you will exit the motorway at Liège. Then follow the signs Marche or Dinant. This road runs across the city of Liège, along the left bank of a canal which is parallel to the river Meuse. After crossing the canal, the road runs along its right bank and then exits the city, sloping upwards to the University Campus (N680). After a couple of kilometers, you will reach the campus entrance. Now refer to a detailed map of the campus or follow the signs P46, P48, or P49 (parking lots closest to the Chemistry Institute).
