About Ghent

Belgium's fourth-largest - and most beautiful - city is home to a quarter of a million people and a flourishing flower export trade. An important port, Ghent's city centre is a pedestrian area that is like a museum to early Flemish architecture and a testament to the city's medieval might. Impressive Gothic sites, such as dramatic St. Bavo's Cathedral and the Castle of the Counts, inspire awe. The works of Flemish masters are housed in the distinguished Museum voor Schone Kunst.

Het Pand is one of the most prized and most frequently rented locations the University of Ghent has to offer. The location is in the heart of the city of Ghent on the banks of the river Leie, near the medieval port with the guildhalls as its remnants. The building used to be a Dominican Monastery, and is now housing the Congress Center of Ghent University, as well as several museum collections, exhibition rooms kept in the original state, and a top-restaurant with professional catering.
