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!
Construction in and around Mechelen City Centre
At the beginning of October 2019, construction began on the connection from the Tangent to four major access roads in Mechelen. Safe passage for pedestrians and cyclists remains available. Car traffic will still be possible in all directions, but a slower flow of traffic will need to be taken into account.
Meanwhile, work is also continuing on the renovation of two hazardous intersections on the Mechelen ring road (R6). The renewal of the intersections with bridges (flyovers) over the Liersesteenweg (N14) and the Antwerpsesteenweg (N1) will make traffic on the Mechelen ring road safer and smoother.
