People really spend their lives in the University of Antwerp's many buildings. Every day, thousands of students and staff take their places in our lecture halls, at their desks and behind the microscopes in our labs. The Infrastructure Department manages the university's buildings and takes care of all the equipment. We also coordinated the important extensions that took place the last years.
Operation Outer Campus
- Building I - CAMPUS MIDDELHEIM: NEW ADMINISTRATION BUILDING
In 2013, the departments of Infrastructure, ICT, Environment and Prevention and Protection at Work were rehoused in Building I. There is room for about 100 workstations. The new complex includes four meeting rooms, a teleconference room and a server room. Campus Middelheim also got a new restaurant for students and academic personnel.
- Building Z - CAMPUS GROENENBORGER: THE TECHNICAL CAMPUS
Campus Groenenborger is now home to the new Building Z, which became the new headquarters of the Faculty of Applied Engineering. The building includes laboratories, research spaces, construction workrooms, computer rooms and offices.
- Building O - CAMPUS DRIE EIKEN: LIFE SCIENCES CAMPUS
The last years, many transformations took place on Campus Drie Eiken in Wilrijk. Besides the renovation of the four existing blocks, two new buildings for education were constructed: Building O and M. These buildings house eight auditoria, two microscopy rooms, a laboratory, a bioroom and a reprography office for copying and printing. The complex is used by multiple faculties. This campus will also get new student accommodation, though this will be a few years in the making.
Campus Drie Eiken is now the life sciences campus. It is home to pharmaceutical, medical, biomedical and veterinary sciences and of course the close links with the nearby University Hospital will also be maintained.

Keeping an eye on things
