Discover student life and the city of Utrecht

Natasha’s favourites

University Library City Centre
Personally, I find the library a very nice, quiet place to study. The large windows let in a lot of natural light. There is an adjoining café, so besides all the studying you can also take a coffee break with your friends. I especially recommend the cappuccinos!

Coffeebar Anne & Max
Whenever I want to catch up with a friend, I go to Anne&Max. The coffee is really good and they recently opened a beautiful outdoor patio where you can sit. It really feels like being in a hidden gem in Utrecht. That little square is a real must!

Park Bloeyendael
I find it a very nice place for walking and playing my ukulele. The park is right next to my house and I can get there easily. From this park, you can go in many directions and if you do it right, you'll find yourself in the centre of Utrecht!

De Neude square
I can relax here. I often meet up with friends for coffee. The central location of the square makes it a logical place to meet. There are always people around, so it always feels very "gezellig/cosy"!

Many cafés

Wilhelminapark is a great place for picnics in the summer and for walks in the autumn. There is a very nice atmosphere and enough space for everyone. Near the park, you can get a delicious ice cream at ice cream parlour Vorst.

Student residences De Sterren
I live in this place! Thanks to my nice housemates, I will love this place for the rest of my life. I never feel alone here. This is where I met my best friend and also my partner!
