The Campus Blairon is a business incubator, education site, local government site, medical post and a seminar centre located in Turnhout in the campine region of the Antwerp province (Belgium). Both the Artesis Hogeschool Antwerpen and the Katholieke Hogeschool Kempen are located on the Campus.


For about 50 years the Campus Blairon was known as the training centre nr. 3 Majoor Blairon of the Belgian army. New recruits started their training at the Blairon barracks. In 1994 the last recruits started their training and in 1999 the military site was closed. A new destination for the building was sought for and the new project started in 2000.
