Venue

Leuven is the capital of the province of Flemish Brabant, in Belgium, and is located about 25 kilometres (16 miles) east of Brussels. It is the eighth largest city in Belgium, and the fourth in Flanders.

Nowadays, Leuven has a large student population, mainly concentrated around the city centre. The Faculty of Medicine of KU Leuven has a broad variety of medical and paramedical disciplines, targeted to adolescents and professionals pursuing further education. It also pays a lot of attention to skills-oriented education and internationalisation, always keeping close contact with its extensive alumni network.

Hotels in Leuven

Although home to a large university, Leuven remains a small town, and does not have a huge number of hotel rooms. Participants are advised to book early to get accommodation in the town itself. There is however a very frequent train service between Brussels and Leuven, so an alternative option (if you cannot find rooms in Leuven) is to stay in Brussels (close to one of the main stations) and ‘reverse commute’ to Leuven (about 30 minutes by train). Those coming by car may find other accommodation in the Leuven area. The event venue has car-parking for registered participants.

Please note that the information below is for guidance only, and the MCAA is not recommending any accommodation in particular. While we have endeavoured to provide the most accurate information possible, the MCAA cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions. It is the responsibility of each participant to make their own bookings and payments. The MCAA will not be responsible for any costs, penalties or taxes incurred by any booking or non-arrival.

Registered members enjoy special benefits for accommodation. Sign-up here!

 

 NB: If you find important information to be added or changed here (e.g. establishments closed or full, interesting non-listed establishments, etc.) please send this information to contact@mariecuriealumni.eu and we will update where possible.
