Discover the future HEC Liège campus

This is THE major project of the coming years for HEC Liège: the creation of a brand new campus covering 1.6 hectares, in the heart of Liège, at the crossroads between rue Saint-Gilles and rue Louvrex. A necessary project for one of the most dynamic business schools in Europe!

Starting date of works: Summer 2020
Completion date of works: End of 2022.

The centrepiece of the new campus: a new building

At the cutting edge of technology, this new building has been designed as a living and generous place, made up of meeting and exchange places. Students and teachers will be able to count on a very large convivial space on the south side, divided into smaller work or relaxation areas. Flexible and adaptable, this type of configuration favours new forms of work organization (NWoW) and teaching (NWoL).

A sustainable campus

The new campus is also an opportunity to be part of a sustainable development perspective.
Objective: To reduce the impact of the building on its environment while improving the quality of life of students and members of HEC Liège.

  • Use of raw and healthy materials
  • Radiant heating
  • Air quality sensors
  • Rainwater harvesting
  • Bicycle parking with more than 50 spaces

The purchase of a joint site

In addition to the current premises and the future new building, HEC Liège has acquired the land adjoining the current building. The space dedicated to the future campus is thus significantly expanded. This unique opportunity also means the acquisition of the Sainte Julienne building, which will be renovated.

A new campus for a bigger impact !

Green spaces

And what would a campus be without green spaces in which to stroll and rest? The renovation work will be carried out with a view to maintaining as much greenery and many trees as possible. A campus where life is good!
