Welcome to Leuven

FabLab Leuven is "open source hardware" for students and personnel of the Association KU Leuven, Imec and Flanders Make, i.e.: a library with user friendly machines to make almost anything with wood or plastic.

For students and personnel of the Association KU Leuven, Imec and Flanders Make.

attention: RESERVATION POSSIBILITY for personnel: make your reservation here.

Always take your personal student or personnel card of Association KU Leuven, Imec or Flanders Make with you and report to us before using the machines. We allow maximum 25 persons in our largest FabLab room.
Are you personnel, you can still make your reservation here.

Furthermore you show that you respect our FabLab and the other users by always cleaning up your material when you have finished.

You are only allowed to use one machine per project / person (i.e. if you are making invitiations or tokens for scouts, you can only use one laser cutter). This in respect for the people waiting to use the laser cutter as well.

Construction works around FabLab

Due to constructin works around FabLab, FabLab is temporarily not accessible through the normal entrance. You can walk around the fence (along the bike path) and take the Dijle entrance on the other side (which is also the entrance for auditorium D and E).

Opening hours during summer


During the summer period we are open from 9:00-17:30 on Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri and from 9:15-17:30 on Wednesday.

Measures as from 27 September 2021


As from 27 September FabLab is open again without reservation system and this for students of KU Leuven (Association). Possible existing reservations after 27 September will be deleted.

For KU Leuven, Flanders Make and Imec personnel it will still be possible – to a limited extent – to make a reservation for the laser cutter (i.e. on availability basis and reservation needs to be done at least 12 hours on beforehand). Also, please come on time, as we only keep your reservation for max 15 minutes after the start.

Please, note that maximum 25 persons will be allowed to be in the FabLab main room at the same time. Besides that a face mask is always required, also when you are working at the laser cutter.
