The University of Antwerp is located in the city of Antwerp, in the heart of Belgium and Europe. The port of Antwerp is one of the biggest in the world. The city of Antwerp is not just an ancient medieval and baroque city, full of history. It is also a bustling metropolis with a vibrant social scene, impressive architecture, and cultural contrasts. Over 170 nationalities live here, more than in New York! This cosmopolitan nature is also reflected at the University of Antwerp.
