Low Emission Zone

Pay attention! The campus is located in the low emission zone (LEZ) of the Brussels Capital Region (BCR). If you come by car, check here whether your vehicle is allowed to drive in the LEZ. Your vehicle doesn’t meet the access criteria for the LEZ? Then you can buy a day pass. Vehicles registered abroad must register for the LEZ unless they are registered in the Netherlands.

An open campus for all

As VUB, we swear by values such as openness and connectedness. Our campuses are therefore freely accessible to our students, staff and visitors. In this way we emphasise our open character as a free university and at the same time strengthen our bond with the city of Brussels and its residents. As everywhere in public spaces, certain rules do apply – this way campus life remains pleasant for everyone.
