Metro map

From Lille Flandres station

Take métro line 1 in the direction of “4 cantons” and get off at “Pont de Bois”.
Outside the métro station, cross the small traffic roundabout and take the pedestrian path opposite, which runs upwards past a square with blue metal arches. At the top of the path, turn left between two tower blocks and keep walking straight ahead. You will come to a bridge: cross it and keep straight on, passing the central library on one side and the university restaurant on the other, until you reach a large covered arcade running perpendicular to your path. Head towards the right and enter building B. Follow the arrows to STL.

Outside University opening hours, the buildings can only be entered via the pedestrian entrance to the car park security point (“poste de surveillance”), which is located near the entrance to the staff underground car park. If you are coming by métro, follow the route indicated above, but once you pass the university restaurant, turn left and walk along the side of the restaurant (you will see a small decorative bridge on your right) and go down the stairs between the restaurant and the “maison de l’étudiant”. At the bottom of this stairway, turn right, and the security point is about 50 metres ahead. Once inside, you are in the underground car park; the entrance to building B, your destination, is opposite, on a diagonal from you, extreme left. The easiest way to reach it is to turn left, walk up to the last row of parking spaces, then turn right and walk to the end of this row. You will find yourself at the entrance to building B, and once inside, on the right floor: just follow the arrows to STL.

Return to Lille Flandres station by métro line 2 in the direction of “St. Philibert” (one stop), then, follow the instructions above.
