ICC International Contact Club

What does ICC stand for?

The International Contact Club (ICC) provides opportunities for international guests to meet. ICC organises cultural activities for international members of the academic community. These activities favour cultural exchange, meeting each other and making new friends. ICC is run by a group of volunteers who work together with KU Leuven Student Services. Membership is completely free for KU Leuven members and their families.
