ULB offers a wide choice of accommodation in its own halls of residence and private halls of residence, either on one of its three campuses (Solbosch, La Plaine, Erasme) or off-campus (with over 2,400 rooms or flats).

Welcome to the website of the Housing Office of the ULB

For some students, choosing a new accommodation when they decide to leave their primary residence to pursue their studies is a big step. For others, living alone or with a flatmate is already a well-known experience. The ULB offers, through its residences and private partners, more than 2400 accommodations (on and off campus).

The Housing Office will help you to find a suitable accommodation and advise you on many aspects of student housing. On the three campuses of the ULB (Solbosch, Plaine, Erasme), we offer a large number of rooms, either in one of the University or in a private partner residence.
University Residences

For applications for accommodation in a University Residence for the academic year 2019-2020, you need to register via the online form !

Applications must be submitted between the 15th of February and the 31rst of May. Given the limited number of places in the ULB residences, an admission committee rules on applications according to specific criteria (students who have recieve priority access by the social service, students who already live in a residence, students who register for the first time in the ULB and who live outside Brussels and neightboring municiplaities, etc.) In case of acceptance, a contract and a first invoice will be sent to you. The rental will be confirmed after the payment. The duration of the contract is 10 months with possibility of extension during the summer.

The Social Services may offer, in exceptional cases a priority access, for a room in the University Residences. You will find all the necessary information and forms on the website of the Students Social Service. In addition, students of modest condition can introduce a request for rent reduction on this same platform.

Accommodation are only available for students who are, or will, properly be enrolled at the University. If your enrolment is related to an admission decision, we recommend that you submit your application for admission as soon as possible via this link. Your application for an accommodation will be considered only if you have previously applied for an admission.
