Flemish student organisations

Brussels Studenten Genootschap - Brussels Student Organisation

The Brussels student Organisation BSG (Brussels Studenten Genootschap) is the coordinating organ of student societies. It represents the VUB societies vis-a-vis the academic government and improves a smooth two-way communication with the university.

BSG is also in charge of the distribution of subsidies. BSG manages several facilities (amongst which the BSG room) to support the student societies.

An overview of all recognized student societies, activities, BSG services and regulations can be found on the BSG site (only in Dutch).
