The campus: where students shape and reshape the world

University campuses are where young people hold sway, exchanging ideas and reshaping the world day after day. As a Brussels, Belgian and European institution, Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) is an integral part of our contemporary history. On this tour you will explore the three-hectare campus, built after the Second World War on the American model: Solvay Business School, the Paul-Émile Janson Auditorium and its ingenious architecture, and Cité Héger, home to the halls of residence where many a student friendship is forged. Building A, a Flemish neo-Renaissance edifice that was the centre of student protests in 1968, and the postmodernist Humanities Library are also on the itinerary, which will be a trip down memory lane for some and a chance for others to discover somewhere new.

In cooperation with E-Guides.
