We recommend you to take the train to 'Leuven Station' and then travel to campus  using a bus or a bike.  You can find more information on both options above. 

Connection to Leuven Station  tends to be smoother than to Heverlee station. If you opt for Heverlee station, you will need to walk and take another mode of transport for the last  part as well.
