Research on the Vrije Universiteit Brussel

As the university archives, CAVA conducts historical research on the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and its academic community. The archives are extremely rich and staff members have already compiled lists with basic information about the university. In addition, CAVA also published context information on various themes, such as the ideological character of the university, its intangible heritage and symbolism and the history of the campus. The research into student life in Brussels is so important that a separate page is dedicated to it. Several other themes are discussed at length on the website '50 Years of VUB'.

CAVA is happy to share its online bibliography with interested parties. It is a non-exhaustive list of books and articles, which is regularly updated. Basic literature can be found below. Some of the works included in the bibliography can be consulted in the reference library in the reading room.
