Education

Genk is a rather small student city. As a student you have several schools you can attend for further education. 

Blokbar

Genk provides Blokbar (Dutch for 'study bar') during the winter exam periods in January and the summer exam periods in June. At Blokbar you can study in silence with other students on a location that provides everything that you need to study. The Blokbar provides free wifi, power sockets for your electronical devices en free water and coffee. 

Check out our social media to see where and when the next Blokbar will take place. So keep your eyes peeled!

Studying at Blokbar is completely free of charge and no registration is needed, but beware that the Blokbar is a very popular concept among students in Genk. If you want to claim a spot at a table, make sure you come early. 

Note: during these corona times, the city provides a Blokbar with obligatory registrations to ensure the safety and health of its students. The city makes sure to follow up the measurements imposed by the government. 

Can't find a spot in Blokbar? The library of Genk always welcomes students to study. You can find more information on their website: Bibliotheek Genk.
