Kickstart your student life

Get a feel for life on campus. This is your inside view into KdG’s organisations, clubs and ways to connect.

Explore the intranet

From the end of June onwards, enrolled students will get access to KdG's intranet.

This is where you can find out about every aspect of life as a student. Here you'll find:

  • All your programme-specific information, such as contact details, academic calendar, timetables, elective programmes.
  • All the info you need around guidance and support.
  • Answers to any technical questions.
  • News about everything happening on and around the campuses.
  • What’s going on for students in Antwerp.
It feels like we are being heard and taken care of. KdG is trying to get the students to connect with each other as well as with the staff, and this kind of social aspect is quite important to me.

KdG motivates me through respectful interaction and trust. Giving me the opportunity to engage in different leadership roles, from being part of Student Council, to being an Ambassador. This shows me that I am seen and appreciated and it is contributing to my self-esteem and makes me believe more in my potential.
