Requesting the tent

Student organisations affiliated with the Brussels Student Society (BSG) can submit their request to use the tent to BSG via e-mail. They must do this at the start of the academic year. Final allocation of the tent is done through lottery arrangements. Then, the BSG will apply for the use of the tent at the department Infradesk. You also need to send in the reservation form. Good to know, the maximum noise intensity is 100 dB.

Reservation form

For student organisations that are affiliated with the BSG the price of the tent is as follows:

  • Complete: € 900 (sound until 5 AM)
  • Sound and beverage catering stops at 4 AM: € 600
  • Sound and beverage catering stops at midnight 12 AM: € 450

On the day of the tent party the security guards will check whether the conditions of the safety plan and the floor plan (see below) have been met.
