City sights

Ancient churches, chapels and abbeys are landmarks in this vibrant medieval university city just 20 km east of Brussels. Founded in 1475, Vlerick’s parent university, KULeuven has also given rise to an extraordinarily high concentration of specialised knowledge centres and other spin-offs. Add to that Leuven’s role as a major commercial, industrial and administrative centre and it is easy to see why this small but vibrant city is a popular destination.

Settling in

Most students studying in Belgium rent a private room for the whole academic year. The best time of year to start looking for housing is July-August. We advise you to come two weeks prior to the start of classes at the latest, as you will need time to adjust and find your way around in Leuven.

The best way to look for a room or apartment is simply by walking around the vicinity of the school, looking for orange signs saying ‘te huur’ (= for rent) The price for a studio/apartment ranges between 300 and 450euro per month. You can also try these links to find a place:

Ni Hao
Date: 31 May 2016

Ni hao. That was basically the only Chinese I knew before visiting the Red Dragon. Most of us only know the People’s Republic from items in the news, articles in news papers and magazines, all kind of literature we bumped into during our studies at Vlerick or prior at university or work or even just […]
