Bozar opens its doors for students cramming for exams
Students looking for a quiet place to study ahead of their January exams can head to the Bozar cultural centre this year.
The Brussels student service desk Brik has unveiled the list of organisations it’s been able to convince to temporarily open their doors to students in need of a quiet studying spot.
This year’s list of study spaces for the first time includes BOZAR, thanks to weKONEKT.brussels, a partnership between the French and Dutch-language universities of Brussels, or the VUB and ULB respectively. The study space at Bozar will be able to accommodate 80 students.
The pop-up study spaces have been a long-standing focus for Brik, which has found that students like to study together because it helps them focus and because it allows them to take a break together. The study spaces, of which there are 27 spread across the city, for instance include a relaxation area where students can grab a coffee or tea.
This year, Brik will also try out a new digital registration system that will allow students to book a spot online. Because the pop-up study spaces are so popular, it’s not uncommon for students to show up to a spot only to find it’s already full.
