Coming from the E40 or the E42:

At the interchange in Loncin, follow the E25 “Liège-Luxembourg”. After a few minutes, you will enter the Tunnel de Cointe. Take the first exit “Val Benoit-Seraing”. Follow the river Meuse, which should be to your left. At the roundabout, take the second exit and keep following the river. Just before the Standard football stadium, you have to go under a bridge and turn right immediately after the bridge in order to cross it. Then continue to follow the direction “Marche”. The road (called “route de Sclessin”) goes up the Sart Tilman hill for about 3 kilometers. Take the exit “Université de Liège” (2nd exit on the hill). You will then come to another roundabout. Take the first exit and turn right (direction “ULg/CHU") to enter the campus. This road takes you to a third roundabout (the roundabout of the “Amphis de l’Europe"). You have to take the first exit (towards the Boulevard de Colonster). On your left, you will see a sculpture made of dead trees. Finally, turn right at the next roundabout. Building B52 is about 50 meters further, on your left.


Coming from the E25:

Get off the motorway at the exit 40 “Embourg”, and follow the directions “ULg Sart Tilman”.  Once you have reached the Sart Tilman, follow the signs "Polytech 1".



Several parking areas in the vicinity of buildings B52 and B49 are freely accessible. Additionally, the parking P32b is reserved for visitors and personnel, but visitors must be announced in advance to access it. Ask your A&M person of contact if you are planning a visit.
