Welcome to the University of Louvain!
We wish you a pleasant stay in Belgium and a successful and rewarding educational experience.
This guide will help you attend to most of the formalities and procedures that are required before and after your arrival in Belgium and, as you approach the end of your stay, leading up to your departure. You will find information on immigration regulations, accommodation, university enrolment and registration, even instructions on how to claim a VAT refund. Perhaps most important, you will find a wealth of information regarding the many support services at your disposal to help you thrive throughout your stay at UCL.
