University College Leuven-Limburg
Founded in 2014 by the merger of the former Katholieke Hogeschool Limburg and the Catholic University of Louvain, the UCLL is one of the most prestigious universities in Europe. The “Moving Minds” university’s philosophy aims to motivate and connect a wide range of people so that ideas can be shared, come to life and create positive change. This vision is the basis of the pedagogy and is shared by the entire teaching community.
You will be on the Leuven campus. A large white building, which over the years has become a landmark in Leuven, surrounded by rolling fields, reachable by a short bike ride from Leuven city center.
A parking lot and restaurant are available on site.
The charm of student cities such as Leuven or Hasselt lies in the immediate availability of all urban amenities in a green setting.
In addition, Leuven is located close to magnificent panoramas and cultural highlights of Belgium. The seaside and hiking regions as well as a wide variety of festivals, cultural centers and museums can easily be reached at all times.
The location of the campus allows easy access to Brussels and other European capitals.
