Got a great idea that turns out to be too pricey to cover yourself? There are a few doors you can knock on without hesitation. First check with the Student Facility Service of your educational establishment. They will not sponsor parties, but for a day of wall climbing or a theatre night they might have something spare in their budget. Mind you! At the uni, that budget is already divided among the student clubs. They receive annual subsidies to organize activities.

At different places around town, you can find info pillars and posting pillars. Take a few rules into account and your message will get to its audience in no time. The police and the city are pursuing active measures to posting signs/posters illegally (on electricity cases or lantern poles for example) and fines can go up to €350. So make sure to carefully read about the mounting policy.

THE TEAM’S TIP!

“Want to break in your new place with a house party? It might be good to know that under Belgian law you’ll be seen as an official organizer of an event, which means you can be held responsible if an accident or something else happens. Getting your party crew under control is a must!”
