Taking the bus in Leuven


Leuven station

We recommend you to take the train to 'Leuven Station' and then travel to Hertogstraat 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 rather than take another mode of transport for the last  part as well.


Heverlee station

Heverlee station is closest to campus but also has no direct bus connection to Hertogstraat Campus  and  far fewer trains stopping there.

If you opt for this station, walk between fifteen to twenty minutes to campus via Naamsesteenweg and then Hertogstraat.
