Services

The University of Liège has approximately fifty computer rooms located in all Faculties on both the downtown and Sart Tilman campuses. Students have access to 650 computers.

Each computer room has a manager who determines his/her own access procedures.

The University of Liege boasts one of the largest corporate networks in Wallonia: a 10-Gps optical fibre internet backbone covering the entirety of the Sart Tilman and downtown campuses, high-speed connection to distant sites, 1-Gbps dual-port internet access (via Belnet) , and 20 000 100-Mbps connection points!

As a university, it is our duty to offer the upmost security while remaining open to the world. We are able to meet this challenge through a dual security system: the first is more comprehensive and situated at the junction of the network and the internet; the second utilizes the segmentation of the networks attached to the backbone in "differentiated zones" where the rules for filtering incoming and outgoing traffic can be modified according to local imperative

The University of Liège began its audio and video podcasting of classes in the spring of 2009.

This technology, progressively being implemented since the beginning of the 2009-2010 academic year, will be a great help to students, allowing them to listen or watch a class as many times as necessary.

Classrooms will be equipped with a sound and image capture system. This system will be entirely automated and integrated with student and class management software. The professor will directly monitor the tool using a simple interface.

Once a class is over, the professor need only validate the recording which will automatically be processed for consultation in various formats. Students registered in the course can visualize the podcast via myULg either in high definition on a PC or Mac computer with H.264 streaming (Quicktime) or Windows Media, by downloading it on a MPEG4 player and consulting it while on the train for example, or by downloading it on a MP3 player in audio format only.

Student Life

Liège is a tourist town, a welcoming town, a stopping-off place at the intersection of three borders; it is a cosmopolitan city as shown by the make-up of its population. A Sunday morning stroll through La Batte market is all it takes to become aware of this. Italian and North African immigration has brought the accents and human warmth of the south into this northern land. This mixing of cultures contributes to the charm of the Ardent City.

Liège is proud of being described as a city offering a warm welcome. Neither too big nor too small, it offers all the attractions of a real town but remains on a human scale. The city centre is very commercial and full of restaurants and bars. There is something for all tastes and all purses. For their part, the students show a preference for the Carré, a maze of small streets whose night life is particularly appreciated. On the right bank of the river, in the Outremeuse district, Rue Roture attracts gourmets and lovers of other cultures.

Diverse and vibrant student towns (Liège-Gembloux-Arlon), easily-found affordable accommodation, many active student associations, varied cultural and sports clubs, outdoor hikes and other activities, high-speed train station, airport
