Personal comments
The library needs to be always open not closed after 5 in the afternon or in the weekends and the school needs to be open at least some days during the 20 days Christmas holiday so that we can facilitate the resources and the students might feel closer to their university environment. Much more homeworks needed to provide adaptation of the courses.

Final comments
Don't take Tallys its too expensive use normal train lines which goes almost eveywhere. Take an abonement of travel within the city and utilize from the discounts of traveling and museums and concerts and parties. Hang out with locals to lea much more and travel as with a guide. Join ESN:))

Housing
Type of housing: A room exchange
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
I'd like to live in an apartment because in a student room that I have lived I needed to share showers and kitchen with 15 people so I'd rather prefer to have less people or either my own shower and kitchen with much more space and less costly.

Personal comments
The room was not provided by the university but they helped me to find one. The provider of housing is a well-known organization in Brussels but the room was dirty and destroyed when I first hired although all the problems were fixed by the organization carefully. However as a first impression it was not an hospital environment to live. I need to mention that the equipe of the organization were always so very interested and hospital.
