Auditorium O, Rozier 44

From the street ‘Rozier’ (coming from St. Pietersplein): Take the main entrance (opposite the University main library and the ‘Book Tower’) and immediately exit the building straight in front of you onto the inner court. Re-enter the building on your far right. Take the left corridor and left again past the toilets; keep going on - Lecture Hall O is on your left. 

From the street ’Jozef Plateustraat’ (coming from the city centre or station): Take the main entrance (nr. 22) and go through the glass doors on your left. Take the door on your right just before the next glass doors, cross the courtyard and re-enter the building straight ahead. Go right and Lecture Hall O is on your left.

From Ghent Sint-Pieters Station: Take the main tram (1) towards the city centre, which takes 15 min. (by foot is at least 30 minutes). Get off at stop “Verlorenkost”. Take the street on your right up the hill (Jozef Plateaustraat), with the Illy coffee shop on the corner to your right.

By car: The square ‘Sint. Pietersplein’ has an underground parking (P10). There is also paid parking in the surrounding streets (with coin metres).

From the motorway (E40/E17) take the exit Ghent Centrum. Coming down a viaduct and towards the first traffic lights you see, get in the left hand lane early and take a left onto the inner city ring rather than heading to the city centre. Follow the ring (Sint-Lievenslaan) and take a right turn at the second set of traffic lights (Overpoortstraat). This street leads you to the underground car park at the square.    

Walk up hill through Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat (to the left of the abbey) and take the second street on your left, which is the “Rozier” (with the university library tower on your left).
