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.

News

From 05/02/2024 onwards it’s no longer possible to park your car at FabLab !!

25/01/2024

Summer – opening hours + parking no longer publicly accessible

03/07/2023

In the summer period we are open from 9:00-17:30 on Mon, Tue, Thu and Fri and from 9:15-17:30 on Wednesdays.
(please note that there are also some closing days due to camps, holidays, …)

Furthermore, changes are coming regarding the parking policy on campus Arenberg (including the parking at FabLab):
KU Leuven explicitly wants to ask for a more sustainable approach to the campus. From academic year 2023-’24, there will be stricter supervision on the staff car parks of Arenberg (where students sometimes park unlawfully today). Parking De Molen will disappear in favor of more green space and from August 2023 a barrier will be built at the FabLab parking lot and will then only be accessible for staff and students with a recognized disability.
(Students with a recognized disability should contact their care coordinator to request an exception)
