Hogeschool-Universiteit Brussel (HUBrussel or HUB) is a European university which was founded in 2007. The HUBrussel is the result of the merger between Brussels-based colleges European University College Brussels, Vlekho, HONIM and the Catholic University of Brussels (KUBrussel).

HUBrussel offers degrees both on university (KULeuven degrees) and university college level in Flanders, the Dutch-speaking (northern) region of Belgium. Degrees are offered both in Dutch and in English.


European University College Brussels (EHSAL) was founded in 1925.

In 2008, after the merger with VLEKHO, HONIM and KUBrussel, more than 9,000 students are attending classes in undergraduate, graduate and academic advanced programmes at seven faculties. HUBrussel had five faculties in Brussels, one in Dilbeek. There used to be one in Dubai, called European University College Brussels Dubai, but this has been closed.[1]

HUBrussel is associated with the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, one of the oldest universities in Europe.[2]
