Leuven University Press and COVID-19

Due to the Corona Crisis we are all facing unprecedented challenges. Like many organisations we are committed to supporting our authors, readers, colleagues, customers and business partners in these uncertain times.

We are all working from home and follow up on all questions and orders as usual. 

Mail and parcels outside Europe
Because of the decreasing number of flights and reduced capacity, it is temporarily not possible to deliver mail and parcels to destinations outside of Europe. We apologise for possible delays. For questions about your order, please contact info@lup.be.

Review Copies
As many university buildings and institutions are closed and couriers are unable to make the delivery, we do not send physical review copies at the moment. All review requests will be fulfilled in electronic format. To request a digital review copy, mail to marketing@lup.be.

. AAH2020: 25% discount on our Art History Books
ESSHC20: 25% discount on our Social Science & History Books

All our ebooks are available at 25% discount.
