Where to stay?
Looking for accommodation during your stay at Antwerp Summer and Winter University?
Accepted students will be provided with a list of housing options in different price categories and at different locations. Prices range from €20 per night to €90 per night, depending on the type of accommodation you opt for. For more information and bookings, contact our colleagues at email@example.com
Antwerp has many different accommodation options to offer, ranging from student rooms over youth hostels to classic hotels. Most summer or winter schools organised at Antwerp Summer and Winter University take place at the Stadscampus of the University of Antwerp. This campus is located in the so called “University area” close to the city center.
We explicitly mention the economic option of the university residence "Eclipse 1" at Biekorfstraat 65 where you can rent a room 7 days for €120. The document with the housing options mentions this for august, but it will be available also during the week of our summer school. Please note, however, that to lodge in this hostel, you need to bring your own towels and bedsheet.
We also have good experiences with the Antwerp Student Hostel (ASH) at Frankrijklei and Italiëlei.
Antwerp is located in the centre of Belgium and is easily accessible by plane, train, car and bus. The international airport of Brussels (Zaventem) is the most frequently used gateway to Antwerp, but you might also want to consider the low-cost airport of Brussels South (Charleroi).
Antwerp is also very easy to reach by train. International railway lines link Brussels and Antwerp to several other major European cities.
Lastly, Eurolines and Flixbus buses also frequent the city centre of Antwerp, which might be the cheapest option to get here.
