Katholieke Universiteit te Leuven (KU Leuven)

Brussels / Ghent
School Website

The Faculty of Architecture represents 150 years of design tradition from the Sint-Lucas programmes. Brussels and Ghent are our biotope and living lab, internationalization is our culture.

The Faculty of Architecture, which originated from the Sint-Lucas programmes, stands for renowned architecture education. The history of the faculty and the proximity of the professional and academic art courses of LUCA School of Arts help determine its individuality. Students receive lessons from teachers who are in practice and who enthusiastically transfer the knowledge and skills from their architectural offices.



The faculty has two campuses: one in Ghent and one in Brussels. The courses have approximately the same structure and content in both cities. The differences in location, accommodation, teaching and research tradition give both campuses their own atmosphere.
