Making the party a success

Tell your friends you are coming! Our new website features an attendants’ list. Should you see that some friends of yours, who you know planned to join the party, are missing, please remind them to register on time, spread the word and share the news through your networks.

Is there a dress code?

It is a party among friends; however, we want it to be a memorable festive event. Let’s say make an effort, dress up for a (hopefully – it’s Bruges!) summer party.

And why not wear the College ties and scarves? You can pre-order yours here. We will deliver it to you at the registration desk at the Oud-Sint-Jan on the day of the event or sent via post anywhere in Europe (with exception of umbrellas). Special offer, if you purchase two items, we will offer you a branded Alumni Association umbrella.

Special needs?

Sensitive to the special needs that our senior alumni can have, we would like to invite you to get in touch with us and share any information of how we can make the anniversary dinner as adapted to your promotions needs (e.g. acoustics) and requirements as possible! Our team will do our best to find solutions, do not hesitate to contact us on anciens@coleurope.eu.

Where to park your car in Bruges?

Should you be coming by car, you can park your car on the Oud-Sint-Jan parking lot. The entrance is located on Zonnekemeers. The parking costs around 8€/day, unless you leave the parking lot between 11pm on Saturday evening and 6am on Sunday morning (the parking gates are open and one can exit for free). So to enjoy free parking, dance until late!
