Welcoming international students at Center Placet is not limited to offer an adapted accommodation.
It is part of a wider dynamic, aimed at encouraging the support of our residents throughout their stay at UCLouvain University, and strengthening their capacity as development actors.
Our will is also reflected in the desire to contribute to create a feeling of intercultural sharing and citizenship education through various actions created for the university community and the residents of Ottignies-Louvain-La-Neuve.
The Center Placet emphasizes partnership and work on imagination and creativity, as gateways to the reflection and development of critical thinking.
Our association pays attention to the difficulties encountered by students and other groups in situations of precariousness or financial fragility. We respond to it through food aid or as part of our project “solidarity grocery”.
