The auditorium should be ready by tonight because Rector Torfs intends to teach in the wooden construction tomorrow.
Claudia Löwick of Leuven University's Student Council explains that the action is being staged to press for more cash for all the country's universities: "It's not for nothing that we are building an extra auditorium today. There's a real problem. Our auditoriums are overcrowded. Maintenance is running behind schedule too and the university is also experiencing problems hiring new staff."
