International House of Gembloux
Founded in 1963, the International House of Gembloux ('Maison internationale') is subsidized by Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech and by the Belgian Development Cooperation.
The purpose of the International House of Gembloux ('Maison internationale') is to welcome and accommodate the Faculty's students (bachelor's, master's, post-graduate, interns and doctoral students) from foreign countries and to organise social and cultural activities for them.
Since 1988, the non-profit organisation International House of Gembloux ('Maison internationale') has been hosting mainly international students at the North-South House ('Maison Nord-Sud'), with the possible option of being accompanied by their families.
The North-South House ('Maison Nord-Sud') permanently houses 70 to 80 people. It includes single rooms, studios and apartments, as well as common areas: meeting rooms, classrooms, study rooms, games and television rooms, kitchens, a laundry room and sanitary facilities.
It also has a garden where recreational and sporting activities can take place.
Part of the accommodation is reserved for students (or trainees) who come for short periods of time. The other part is reserved for students who come for an academic year.
