Leuven Expat Events

Make the most of your Leuven Expat Life

Just east of Brussels, Leuven offers an exciting intercultural experience for expats, starting with cultural highlights, like the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, the oldest Catholic university in the world, the folkloristic festivities on the occasion of Belgium’s Dynasty Day, up to getting a taste of traditional pommes frites. The InterNations community helps you as an Leuven expat to enjoy your expat stay in Belgium to the fullest. Our members have already come across many of the questions you’ll have when starting your expatriate life in Leuven and kindly offer you their assistance, from ʺCan anyone recommend their favourite brasserie?ʺ up to ʺShould I study French or rather Dutch -- or even both?ʺ.

Our members have their roots in Australia, Brazil, the USA, Sweden and almost any other country around the globe, all sharing your situation as an expat in Leuven. InterNations makes it easy for you to connect with fellow expats in Leuven.
