General practitioners and hospitals

Where to go when you have health problems?

Medical centre for students

In the unhappy event of health problems, turn to the Medical centre for students, where three General Practitioners (GPs) run a practice for students. They are well acquainted with the specific situation of students and are therefore ideally placed to deal with any medical problems you might experience. Every student is welcome!

Urgent medical help during weekends or at night

Looking for a General Practitioner outside the office hours? Call 1733 (choose a language and a postal code) on working days between 7 pm and 8 am, from Friday 7 pm until Monday 8 am  or on a public holiday from 7 pm previous day until 8 am next day. 

Don't forget your health insurance card and your identity card.
