Studio Brussel (StuBru) is a radio station in Belgium, produced by the VRT. The music played is considered more alternative than the other big radio stations, and is aimed mainly at a youth audience.

Studio Brussel started on 1 April 1983. It began as a regional radio station broadcasting only during rush hour. Gradually, broadcasting times were expanded and Studio Brussel could be heard throughout all of Flanders. The station played more alternative music and more heavy music (i.e. rock, hiphop, house and techno), which wasn't broadcast by commercial radio stations. Every year, there is a chart called the Tijdloze 100 (timeless 100), with 100 timeless tracks. At the end of 2002, Studio Brussel got a new look, including a new logo in the shape of a red ellipse.

Every spring, Studio Brussel organises StuBru.Uit in the Vooruit in Gent, where different Flemish artists come to play their sets. On 25 May 2005 the world crowdsurfing record was beaten with 14 minutes and 37 seconds by Peter van de Veire in Gent.

A well know abbreviation for Studio Brussel in Belgium is StuBru.
