How is housing in Brussels?

300 to 450 Euro/month are available on the University
campus. If necessary, it is not too difficult
to find reasonably priced housing off campus in the direct
neighborhood of the Institute or even right in the centre
of the city. The campus has its own metro station (Alma) of
the Brussels subway
network and is situated at the North-East rim
of Brussels close to the international airport and at 15 min
from the city center.
