Club - Convent de Chièvres -
Grand Beguinage - 3000 Leuven - Belgium
The Faculty Club is the conference and meeting centre of the Catholic
University of Leuven. They welcome guests to the calm and tranquility
of the 13th century Infirmerie of the Grand Beguinage and the Convent
de Chièvres, built in 1561. The ancient historical site
of the Grand Beguinage was included on the UNESCO World Heritage
2000, and the Faculty Club manages a part of this unique complex.
The Faculty Club is ideally situated on the Leuven ring road, close
to the E40/E314, and has parking for 200 cars - only 15 minutes from
the national airport and 20 minutes from Brussels by car or train.
We advise you to bring comfortable shoes to the conference due
to the cobbled streets in the Grand Beguinage.
