Campus Lucas Faydherbe

Campus Lucas Faydherbe is a lively complex with bright, spacious workspaces. In the workshop, you will find the most cutting-edge tools: 3D printers, laser cutters, panel saws and more. The warm and friendly atmosphere on campus is unique. Nobody is a number, and there are no barriers between teachers and students.

Mechelen is a hip and happening city, perfect for students. Enjoy a cappuccino on your short walk from the train station to the campus. After your exams, have lunch in the sun and take a stroll through the shopping area. Head back to the learning centre to study, quickly drop off your books in your room and off you go for a party! In Mechelen, everything is close by. #2800love, indeed!
