Parking in Louvain-la-Neuve


Originally destined for the non-university public, there are two areas to park on the Louvain-la-Neuve site in UCL car parks: paying public car parks in the town centre and car parks in the ‘zone bleue’ (blue zone) spread across the whole of the territory of Louvain-la-Neuve.


Following negotiations and the signing of a joint "Parkings-Mobilité" convention with UCL’s trade union delegations, the university authorities drew up rules which govern parking on the university site. For some car parks there will be a charge, but a large number of free parking spaces remain for UCL staff and students. The ‘Car park’ measures have been accompanied by the implementation of a mobility policy which, by providing financial incentives to staff in particular, is an attempt to encourage the use of public transport and bicycles, particular in the direction of the Louvain-la-Neuve site.

The authorities of the town of Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve have also drawn up new rules
on parking on the whole of the Louvain-la-Neuve site.

UCL car parks are split into two categories: zone A and zone B. Private UCL parking spaces are accessible 24/7. They are monitored, checked, made secure and kept in good condition.

  • Zone A1 – 180 euros per annum with the possibility of a quarterly and half-yearly subscription.
  • Zone A2 – 25 euros per annum.
  • Zone B - free if driver displays his/her ad hoc task disc.

The outlying car parks Baudouin 1er, Rédimé and Lauzelle are open to all and for an unlimited period.
