Bozar opens its doors for students cramming for exams

14:38 05/12/2019

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, 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.

ULB & VUB are not the only 2 Brussels universities. Funny how Linda Thompson always pretends not to know that.

A good idea. When I was a student, I was looking for a place for solitude, but I'm not sure if this is possible in a cultural center. Now students love to get together in groups and help each other with their homework or just share their insights. Once, at one of these meetings, I learned about paraphrasing service uk with the help of which I could paraphrase an essay and get a unique ready-made text. I have been using this service for a long time. I think this is useful for all students.
