Campus National might be a new player in Antwerp’s educational landscape, it’s already a force to be reckoned with. Originally built as a tenement house at the end of the 19th century, it has developed into a versatile, multifunctional building, whilst still retaining that satisfyingly social buzz. It houses a multi-purpose hall, a learning centre and a café. In 2015 the Campus was proclaimed the third most beautiful building in Antwerp and if you’re lucky, the place where you study might just look out onto the magnificent courtyard of the Institute of Tropical Medicine. Studying here nets you the added bonus of a beautiful and inspiring environment.

Prefer getting some fresh air? Antwerp’s “Zuid” has so much to offer that the true challenge will be pacing yourself. At midday, you could try Mirlo’s, a hip, brand-new lunch bar, or the delicious vegetarian dishes of De Broers van Julienne. If it’s a sandwich or cup of coffee you’re after, check out the ultimate hipster bar, Vitrin.
Perhaps you’re just looking to stretch your legs? Go for a walk along the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp, the Waterpoort or the “Gedempte Zuiderdokken”. The Chat Le Roi, the Kulminator or one of the plentiful cafés of the Mechelseplein, such as the Kapitein Zeppos or Korsakov, are all perfect places to wind down after a hectic day.
