About us

Welcome to the official LBK website! LBK stands for Leuvense Bio-ingenieurs Kring, the official student association of the faculty of bioscience engineering at the KU Leuven. On this website you can find out what our teams do, find an overview of future events and who to contact when you have questions.

LBK organizes lots of events: from “cantusses” and parties to sporting events and cultural trips. We also represent our students at the faculty and maintain connections with companies. Our International team provides a warm welcome to our international students and helps them adjust to the new city they live in. All of this is overseen by our “preses” and “vice-preses”, who also maintain a friendly relationship with the other student organisations in Leuven.

All who want to relax, drink a coffee or eat a sandwich can go to the Baarr, our own bar that lies in the beautiful Kasteelpark van Arenberg. We also have our own “fakbar” (faculty pub) called the Gnorgl. Here you can meet your fellow students for a drink.

Together we strive to give starting bioscience engineering students all the support they need. When you have questions about your courses and handbooks, team Cursusdienst (Syllabus service) can help. For technical difficulties on the website or exam wiki, you can contact our ICT team. Finally, our first year students can expect all the help they need from our welcome team, who can show them the ropes about how to be a bioscience engineering student in Leuven.

We hope you will find all the information you need and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have additional questions!
