Find your accommodation


If you reserved UCLouvain accommodation in advance

Report to the Accommodation Office with the following documents: 

  • UCLouvain admission documents;
  • (photocopy) of identification document;
  • An international bank account number (with complete data: IBAN number, BIC/SWIFT code, bank name and address, other useful codes depending on your home country).

You will sign a lease agreement and be informed of the rental conditions (appendix of the lease agreement). You will have to pay a security deposit, administrative fees, and first month’s rent. You will then receive the keys and a date will be fixed for an entry inventory of the accommodation.

The accommodations have neither bed linens or crockery but kits are available at the Accommodation Office.

If you plan to look for private accommodation upon arrival. 

The Accommodation Office can provide you with both short-term (hotels and hostels) and long-term (private owners and property agencies) accommodation information.

If you did not reserve UCLouvain accommodation in advance but want to apply for it

Report to the Accommodation Office. Staff will provide you with short-term accommodation information (hotels and hostels).

You may be asked to return daily and possibly be placed on a waiting list. If this is not desired or possible, staff can also provide you with long-term private accommodation information.
