The University of Antwerp Magazine provides a 360° overview of our university, with articles about our educational mission, scientific research, activities on our campuses, stories from our former students and much more. An excellent overview, in other words, of the goings on both at our university and off campus, illustrated with beautiful photos. The magazine is a free quarterly magazine which is sent to all of our university's staff members, emeritus professors and retirees, alumni and external contacts. The magazine has a circulation of 62,000 copies.

The University of Antwerp Magazine is printed carbon neutrally on 100% recycled paper. The printing process uses chlorine-free bleach and plant-based inks, which are solvent-free. Cocoon is FSC-certified paper, meaning that it has been manufactured using wood from sustainably managed forests, and it also carries the European Ecolabel.
We even went a couple of steps further: the printing production of our magazine is entirely carbon neutral, meaning that the CO2 emissions produced by the printing process are completely neutralised by the purchase of emission rights. In this way, we invest in ecological projects.
