We organize a lot of events so be sure to check our calendar or follow NFK on Facebook  and join the group Philosophy Students KULeuven . We also organize reading groups which are promoted via Facebook and Toledo. If you’d like to start a readingroup you can email to readinggroups@nfk.be.



For serious or technical questions about studying at the HIW you can email the staff at hiw.studiesinfo@kuleuven.be, and for  the more general questions you can send an email to the student representatives at education@nfk.be. For guidance with your papers you can get help at the writing lab, which has tutors specifically for any writing questions.



Any questions you might have about living here you can look up at Living in Leuven, the KULs service that helps you settle on campus. Be sure to check out the full guide here .
