Mons: a green and friendly campus at the edge of an open cultural city

Mons is a medium-sized town in the South-east of Belgium, with about 100,000 inhabitants and with a long history and a rich patrimony. It is also the Walloon capital of culture since 2002 and has been selected to be the European capital of culture in 2015. In Mons, the School is established at the edge of the town, close to highway access but in a quiet and green campus.

A real university campus for LSM with all the facilities and services

The campus provides LSM with an ideal place to both live and study with everything you could need close at hand: auditoriums and classrooms, the library, the staff’s offices, rooms for students, leisure facilities as well as a restaurant. In terms of accommodation, about fifty furnished single rooms, 7 houses with 23 rooms and 24 apartments are located within a very short walking distance from the campus. About UCL’s 1300 students are present and contribute to a very friendly atmosphere.

Cutting-edge learning environment

Relevant new technological means are provided in the best conditions. All classes are available on “Student-Corner”, a virtual campus platform where students have access to all modern e-learning features. More than 220 computers in total are at disposal in multimedia rooms (especially dedicated to soft-skills teaching, self-tuition and working sessions), language laboratories and computers rooms. WIFI connections are available in all the buildings as well as in each type of accommodation. The virtual platform is accessible online 24 hours a day, and grants students access to the same data and software as in the computer rooms.

Open to the world

Through teaching, research and service to society, the School emphasizes international perspective, corporate exposure as well as corporate responsibility and sustainability. Students have access to the largest international exchange programmes of all competing business schools in Belgium. Our programmes offer numerous opportunities for input from practitioners as well as practical work through internships. Our Competency Framework provides students with a self-monitoring tool for the development of their key professional competencies, which facilitates a more targeted recruitment. The School also encourages students to participate in social and cultural life or to develop extra-curriculum activities to contribute to the development of a better society.

Mons, European Capital of Culture in 2015

Culture is part of the tradition and core values of the School. In addition to be the third largest town in Wallonia and legal centre of the Province of Hainaut, Mons has been officially designated European Capital of Culture in 2015. Culture is then clearly one of the city priorities and several projects and cultural infrastructures pave the way for a very strong, original cross-border cultural environment.
