I suppose if you really wanted, there are a couple of hotels within 15-25
minutes walking, but there is nothing closer - I've looked in previous
years. I was volunteering and knew I wasn't going to be in a state to go
eat out after. In the end I just picked a nice and reasonably priced
(rather than close to ULB) hotel, and used a taxi app called eCab - it
worked very well.

So just an openstreetmap or google maps search like
https://www.google.co.uk/maps/search/hotels+near+Solbosch+Campus,+ULB,+Bruxelles/@50.8259147,4.3535337,14z/data=!3m1!4b1
yields a few. Make sure to confirm each hotel's exact distance to the ULB
Solbosch campus of course.
