    Construction and refurbishment of university buildings, laboratories and student accommodation at the Catholic University of Louvain.

    The project aims to improve the quality of the teaching and the research and learning environment at the Catholic University of Louvain.

    Environmental aspects

    Given that universities are not specifically mentioned in the Environmental Impact Assessment Directive, the project is covered by Annex II to the Urban Development Directive. During the project appraisal, EIB staff will examine the results of the Environmental Impact Assessment conducted by the competent authority.

    The promoter is subject to EU procurement directives. The EIB will therefore examine this point in the course of the appraisal.


    Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
