Student Life

Campus life

Luxembourg is redefining itself: from a steel region to a financial centre, the country now wants to morph onwards and become a research hub. In Belval there are plans to turn this vision into reality.

Belval is considered to be one of the largest and most ambitious current urban renewal projects in Europe. On the 120 hectares of grounds that once housed Luxembourg's largest steel foundry, academic research and teaching, work and leisure, industry and commerce and home life and culture are to enter into a thriving mixture. Based on a master plan created by Jo Coenen Architects of Maastricht, the development corporation Agora as well as the public Fonds Belval are bringing this new site into being.

Sports facilities

We can offer you good shape, good mood and good trainers, and what is most important, it is free of charge. Participate in one or several sport activities and retain your energy and strength!

SEVE and the sports trainers of the University of Luxembourg have organised following activities for you:
  • Escalade
  • Pilates
  • Yoga
  • Tennis
  • Tai-bo aerobic
  • Badminton & Teamsports

Student clubs

To be part of a student association and student life in general is paramount to experiencing a positive University experience. Student Associations provide students with valuable skills such as the ability to work in a team environment, to engage with the University beyond academics, and to belong to a family away from home. This type of engagement is essential to taking full advantage of the "University Experience".

This positive experience can provide students with the following opportunities: helping to network with other young professionals, development into well-rounded individuals, and showcase a student's abilities gained from their academic studies.

My experience
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

i'm sad that there's actually no student life near campus..It's difficult to meet new people at! But the university is new and beautiful otherwise :-)

university of luxembourg is should not be a choice
Anonymous rated 1 out of 5 stars is the worst ever place someone can start her education. First, the city is very very expensive, so you need to spend at least 1200 per month (the normal rent is around 650 euros for a 15m small room), unless you want to cook every day, even the meals at university is very expensive! you have to pay 5 euros for each meal, also there is no entertainment in any kind...
