We all kept hoping, family and friends, students and staff of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, that in the end, everything would turn out all right. But to our deepest sorrow, it wasn’t to be: today the news arrived that the body of Frederik Vanclooster, master’s student in computer sciences, had been found.


“Our thoughts go out to Frederik’s family and friends and to everyone who knew him, during this incredibly difficult time,” says Rector Caroline Pauwels. “In times like these, where words seem inadequate, we may also find comfort in our university community.”
