There is no shortage of student housing in the city of Leuven. It offers a wide range of housing opportunities at reasonable prices. Most students choose to rent a room (‘kot’ in Dutch) in a privately-owned student house with shared common spaces and facilities. If you need any help with this, the KU Leuven Housing Service can offer some assistance. The university owns and manages a number of student residences and a limited number of rooms in these residences is reserved for international students with specific scholarships.
