Campus Goudstraat radiates art and culture. Students and lecturers feel well at home in the creative heart of Artevelde University of Applied Sciences.

The city centre of Ghent is expecting nearly 80,000 students in the coming weeks. Therefore, starting Monday 7 September, the obligation to wear a face mask will be expanded to the student district. Wearing a mask will be mandatory for everyone aged 12 years or older in the Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat – Overpoort axis and adjacent streets. On top of that, the city calls on everyone to wear a face mask in other busy areas. That way, we continue to protect ourselves and others against the virus.

  • From 1 January 2020 onwards, Ghent will banish the most polluting cars from its city centre. Campus Goudstraat lies within the borders of this new 'low-emission zone' (LEZ). Petrol cars that meet the Euro 2 standard (Euronorm 2) or higher are allowed in the inner city. Diesel cars are obliged to meet the Euro 5 standard (Euronorm 5) to be allowed in.
