Gribaumont is a Brussels Metro station on line 1 (prior to 4 April 2009 the eastern branch of line 1B). It is located in the municipality of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre / Sint-Pieters-Woluwe and opened on 20 January 1976. It is located under the Avenue de Broqueville.

In 2008 the original "Pavimento Pirelli" black rubber floor tiles on the platforms were removed. They were replaced with new biscuit-coloured terrazzo tiles, with darker grey tiles nearest to the walls. The platform area overhead lighting was also replaced in late 2008.
