Quiet space

The quiet space is a space for prayer and contemplation for all University of Antwerp students and staff, and for conference visitors. They can come here to pray, reflect or just enjoy a moment of peace and quiet.
This space is not associated with a particular religion or ideology - it simply aims to offer neutrality and tranquillity. There are tables where you can read or talk to other people and there are also separate meditation benches.
