While the main language in Leuven is Dutch, most locals speak English. You may, however, find some directional signage confusing. Below are a few tips from our local organisers to help. 

Station Names

  • IC means Inter City, and you will see this mentioned frequently in the main train station.
  • Voie (French) and Spoor (Dutch) mean Platform.
  • You may see Leuven (Dutch) also spelt as Louvain (French). Please note, however, that Leuven and Louvain-la-Neuve are NOT the same.
  • Brussels South station is also known as Bruxelles-Midi (French) and Brussel-Zuid (Dutch).


  • Female in Dutch is Dames.
  • Male in Dutch is Heren.

There are no luggage storage facilities on campus. You may take your luggage with you to the classroom, however, please take care not to obstruct the fire exits.

When it comes to tips, Belgium is comparable to Germany: tips are appreciated but as a sign of appreciation for good service. You are not required to leave them, certainly not if you had just a little something.

Make sure to carry a reusable water bottle. Find water stations around the campus for refills on the go. You may also refill your bottle in the bathroom.
