For international students enrolling at UCL as regular degree student, there are at least three ways to find accommodation in Louvain-la-Neuve or Brussels.
1° University Accommodation
The UCL Accommodation Office manages a large offer of student housing on both the Louvain-la-Neuve and Brussels campus.
Student housing is attributed according to the rules set by the University’s authorities. If your request is accepted, you will receive a written confirmation from the Accommodation Office.
The request form will allow you to make a choice between the different types of accommodation offered:
Detailed descriptions of each type of accommodation are available from the above mentioned pages.
Please note that your request has to be made by 30 June at latest! Beyond this date your request can no longer be taken into consideration.
2° Private Housing Agencies
Should you not be eligible for UCL student housing or should the Accommodation Office be unable to favourably answer your request due to a lack of accommodation available, you will be redirected towards the list of private estate agents in Louvain-la-Neuve and Brussels.
3° Lodgings with a Private Landlord: the "Landlord" file (fichier "Proprios")
The Accommodation Office centralises a large offer of student housing proposed by private landlords (rooms, studio flats, flats and houses) in different price categories. For the Louvain-la-Neuve campus this list is made public as of 29 April; for the Brussels campus as of early May. Keep an eye on the news items on the Accommodation page.
4° In Louvain-la-Neuve only: accommodation at the Collège Timothy Radcliffe
The Collège Timothy Radcliffe offers a “college”-type of communal living and welcomes up to 30 students from all over the world. The College is the fruit of a co-operation between UCL emeritus professor Alain Siaens, the University, the Order of Dominicans and the non-profit association Patria Louvain-La-Neuve. Students are selected based on their academic curriculum and personal motivation. The college also tries to maintain a balance between the geographical origin of students and the year of their academic career. A College “Master” and “Mistress” live on the premises and supervise the communal life.
