Living, studying and working in Leuven

living.jpgThe city of Leuven is an agglomeration of five communities: Leuven, Heverlee, Kessel-Lo, Wilsele and Wijgmaal. Leuven has approximately 90,000 inhabitants. Add to these the 35,000 post-secondary and 11,000 secondary school students and it should come as no surprise that the streets are filled with young faces and that the city lives at a student's rhythm: hectic weeks at the beginning of the academic year and relative calm during vacation and examination periods.
