Commuting to the campus?
Check out the options for season tickets below. The rechargeable MOBIB card combines your tickets of NMBS, MIVB, De Lijn, TEC, B-parking, Cambio and Villo. You can buy a MOBIB card for €5 at a BOOTIK or online via Go Easy. This card will be valid for 5 years.
Find out how to reach the campuses by public transport on the accessibility pages.
Public transport in Brussels
Are you mainly commuting in Brussels? Then you will probably use the public transport offered by MIVB.
With the MIVB school season ticket you can access to entire MIVB-network (buses, trams and metro). This season ticket is possible for students up to 24 years old and costs only €12 per academic year.
The Brupass school season ticket is valid on the entire MIVB-network (buses, trams and metro) + the network of De Lijn, TEC and NMBS in Brussels (in the Brupass zone). This season ticket is possible for students up to 24 years old and costs €52 per academic year.
Are you just an occasional traveller? MIVB offers several options for single fares and multiple journeys, like JUMP 5 or 10 journeys.
How can you buy/renew your season ticket?
No personal MOBIB card yet? Go to a MIVB BOOTIK and bring your identity card and the registration certificate.
Do you already have a personal MOBIB card? Surf to school.mivb.be and upload your registration certificate. You will receive a conformation mail which you will need to buy your season ticket at a GO selling machine or online. You can also go to a KIOSK of BOOTIK with your registration certificate in paper.
By train to the VUB
Do you take the train to the VUB? You'll need a transportation card by NMBS. If you're younger than 26, you have the choice between two season tickets.
The Student Multi card (former Campus card) are 5 journeys outbound and 5 journeys return to be completed over a period of 49 days. This is mainly of interest when you take 2 or 3 trips a week. In many cases this is cheaper than a Youth Pass (€55 for 10 rides, with free choice of departure and arrival).
When you are enrolled in an interuniversity study programme and often travel between two universities, you can ask for a Multi card for both locations, on presentation of a certificate that you have classes in both cities.
A Student Season Ticket is an unlimited subscription for 1, 3 or 12 months for a fixed route. This is mainly interesting if you make 4 or more return travels each week.
Buses between Brussels and Flanders
Coming from Flanders by bus? Then a season ticket of De Lijn is something for you.
Are you between 6 and 24 years old? Then the Buzzy Pazz gives you unlimited travel on all De Lijn buses and trams (except the Limburg express lines) in Flanders and Brussels. You can buy your Buzzy Pazz online, via the contact form or in a De Lijn shop nearby.
The Limburg express bus lines 68 (Bocholt-Antwerp, indirect), 178 (Maaseik-Brussels) and 179 (Hamont-Brussels) are the fastest way to travel to the VUB from the municipalities along these lines by public transport. These buses run every day and with extra rides on Friday and Sunday evenings. Consult the timetables via delijn.be.
The cost is €4 per ride, subscription formulas are also possible. These can only be bought from the driver on presentation of your student card. Please note that the Buzzy Pazz or Omnipas are not valid on these lines.
