|This article does not cite any references or sources. (February 2014)|
|Address||Martelarenplein, 3000 Leuven|
|Opened||22 September 1837|
|Owned by||National Railway Company of Belgium|
In 2007 it was the fifth busiest station in Belgium, only preceded by the three main Brussels stations and Gent-Sint-Pieters railway station.
The station is undergoing extensive and lengthy renovations with a semi-permanent building for the sale of tickets located in the centre of the Station square.
While a high-speed line passes through the station, Leuven is not a stop on any high-speed route.
The station square also houses a major bus terminalas well as extensive bicycle parking and car parking.
The station is noted for a high occurrence of suicides and accidental death, much higher than the national average.
Current expansion is limited because the Leuven station has reached the maximum set of rail and platforms possible, meaning any further expansion would require building an underground segment.
The station includes a tunnel which passes underneath the station for pedestrians as well as an overhead bridge with elevators.
The station is fully accessible for wheelchairs.
