Aula Magna

Aula Magna

The Aula Magna is a vast glass building, located on the edge of the lake of Louvain-La-Neuve. The building, inaugurated in 2001, is used for a number of functions, as it's a great venue for both academic and corporate events, as well as cultural gatherings. The Aula Magna’s bright and striking presence, and its multi-functional use by the public, make it an urban melting pot in the heart of the city.

Discover the building


Louvain-la-Neuve is a planned city in the municipality of Ottignies - Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, situated 30 km southeast of Brussels. This young city was built in 1971 to house the Catholic University of Leuven, which used to be located in Leuven, in the dutch region. Louvain-La-Neuve is a nearly car-free city, making it both very environmentally and pedestrian-friendly. To a great extent, it is still a college town that is largely dominated by its university population.
