Student services

Your student days are the best days of your life … But also a new and exciting start, right? Don’t worry, we are very happy to guide you! Together with the student unions, Student Services organises induction activities on all campuses to help you get to know your fellow student a bit better. This is also an excellent opportunity to discover the range of cultural and sports activities on offer for the new academic year. 

Housing services

Living in student housing is quite an exciting step. It may take some getting used to at first, but after a while, your student accommodation will feel like your second home and you will have a great time there!

In our student housing database you will find all available rooms and studio flats in the vicinity of our campuses. It also gives you more information about extra costs and facilities of the various student rooms. 

Library services

Everyone is welcome at our libraries or learning centres. People who are not students or lecturers at the college may also consult the collection, use copying facilities and find a quiet place to work. Library charges and conditions of loan differ from campus to campus. You can find them below. Follow the links to search our catalogue or search our theses.

Student Life

Campus life

At our campuses in Mechelen and Antwerp, we have halls of residence with a number of facilities (access to wheelchair, lift ...) and with personal support from fellow students. The halls of residence of Thomas More aim to be an example of ‘assisted living’. In other words: a place where students with and without impairments can live and study together. Discover how you can live in assisted living accommodation at one of our halls of residence: Mechelen (Campus Kruidtuin and collaboration with the Diocesan Pastoral Centre) and Antwerp (Campus National). 


The Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders NVAO was established by the Dutch and Flemish governments as an independent accreditation organisation tasked with providing an expert and objective assessment of the quality of higher education in the Netherlands and Flanders.
