The Place To


Residence "The Place To" is a brand new building that was contructed on the old Solvay site. Because of its preserved facade, this building forms a wonderful symbiosis between old and new. It is no coincidence that it is one of the popular residences in the region!

The residence contains 66 rooms (16 - 20 m²) as well as 29 studios (25 - 50 m²) that all meet the needs of the modern student. Each room has its own bathroom (shower, toilet and sink) and is fully furnished (including a desk, bed, refrigerator ...). The studios are all equipped with a kitchen, with hot plates, combi-oven, sink and even dishwasher. On each floor there is a communal kitchen and there is also a very large (100m²) multipurpose room and a bicycle shed. The resident caretaker is also always ready to assist the students and to keep the building clean. A stone's throw from the residence you will find the VUB and the ULB, as well as numerous other schools, most of them within 10' by bus. The Royal Conservatory is also in the immediate vicinity.

Because there is more to the student-life then books and classes, you are also in one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Brussels, surrounded by luxurious shopping streets, cinemas, theaters, restaurants, the Ixelles ponds and the Ter Kameren-forest.
