On foot

The Vives Campus is situated about 3.2 km (2 miles) from the citycenter of Bruges and about 1.6 km (1 mile) from the train station. It is a 20-minute walk from the train station to the Vives Campus. The map below gives further directions.

Coming from the back-side of the station (Sint-Michiels side), you cross the road towards the Koning Albert I-Laan. After the roundabout, turn left into the Veldstraat. Follow this street for 800 meters. Turn right onto the Koningin Astridlaan, and then immediately left onto the Xaverianenstraat.
