At a stone's throw from the center of Brussels, Brussels Woluwe site takes a rural aspect. The University ground contains 52 hectares including 4 green spaces, academic buildings, clinics, shops and housing, it is an amazing village in the middle of the city.
The Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc (University clinics of St. Lucas), which are also on this ground is dedicated to health sciences. Pedestrian zone, it offers 26,000 people who attend every day - students, researchers, doctors and patients of clinics - a breath in the hustle and bustle of the European capital.
The grounds of the UCL is not left in the field of cultural openness and relaxation. Research institutes that are implanted drain researchers of all nationalities. Students weave a network of solidarity and animation to the project and student associations organize conferences, concerts, exhibitions, etc..
This photo shows gives you an overview of the whole complex.
There are quite a lot of buildings
A direct subway line from Brussels'center to the campus
Several little restaurants and shops
The Stella Artois (Belgian Beer) sign, just besides the indications to the different buildings
At the entrance of the park is a huge medical herbs plantation, plants which are also used for researches
A long way through the park leads to the University buildings
Students and teachers are enjoying the quietness of the park, for studies, relaxing, a sunbath or just some chatting.
There are also sculptures exposed from various international artists. Honestly they didn't really attract me and the titles were rather strange. I wished I could see the artist life who created his selfportrait !
