Family accommodation

Facilities on the Sint-Pieter campus, E 732, level 3

The accommodation facilities provide a number of single and double rooms for the family and close friends of patients. The family accommodation facilities are an alternative to 'going home' and not for admission to hospital.

The entire operation is undertaken by a group of volunteers who take responsibility for the day-to-day functioning of the facilities and act as hostesses. They are part of the voluntary sector at UZ Leuven.
